I am in process of moving the site to another server. I had some problems last week with the server and moved it to a backup server until I could get things troubleshooted and fixed. The problems are now fixed so I will be moving the site off the backup server.

Downtime should be minimal. It will depend on how long the IP change takes. If you get a closed sign when visiting the site do a hard refresh of your browser. You might also have to use ipconfig to flush the DNS cache.

Files are being copied over now. Once that is complete I will dump the database and move it. After the database is dumped I will close down the site and change the IP in DNS to the other server.

I will be doing one more thing, but, it will not affect the site. I will be changing registrars and during that change you shouldn't even notice it happening. I am gradually moving the domains I have to Google Domains. This is the last domain to move. All the rest went without a hitch.
