UTI is down for a little bit.
« on: November 24, 2009, 10:20:02 am »
United-TI is currently down due to a server change.

Quote
Server change in progress. Please come back later

From Summer 2008 to Summer 2009, United-TI has seen more and more downtimes and the website was very hard to access at 3 AM GMT-5 due to extremly slow loading speed at this hour. Hopefully, the new server should fix this. Hopefully it will be avaliable again soon.

Update: it seems that UTI is doing some shifting around on the site. The forum has been relocated to http://unitedti.org/forum/
the forum was offline due to some problems with lost posts, and when I tried to connect to it recently this message was given

IPS Driver Error

There appears to be an error with the database.

Mhmm I guess that might be good in some ways. Last year until this summer, there were more and more downtimes. Site was also very slow around 3 AM of my time, making it very hard to access for Europeans during morning.

I hope they won't lose a bunch of posts like the last time they switched in 2005 and that the new server will be more stable, though x.x

I don't remember problems in loading to UTI forums...
But I rarely visit in the mornings.

There used to be a lot of days where it was down for like 12-24 hours. I think you were less active during the peak of it, though. That said, it was far less bad than what happened from November to December 2004, though.

Sorry, I didn't mean it like that.  I meant I'd been here for 10 days. :)

UTI was still up at about 8:00 last night, but today I havn't been able to get on at all.

Oh lol ok. You've been around for a bit longer than 10 days, though.

Yeah, back in 2005, the server move caused database to corrupt, somewhat, and they lost like 10000 posts I think. That happened to Cemetech too twice, altough not because of server move. More a server crash/hack. TIMGUL database corrupted in June during a SMF upgrade from 2.0 RC1 to RC1.1 and it took one month to get fixed, and we lost about 3 months of posts.

If it won't stay down for very long (a day or two) and doesn't lose load of recent posts, I think they should pick up again very easily. Last night there were like 20 active topics in the past 24 hours, if not more.
