    A message from the Administrators:

    Hopefully this will go smoothly with a minimum of disruption, but there is always the "oooh! I never thought of that!" waiting to catch you out.

    Worryingly, also a favoured haunt of Edward Teach, better known perhaps as Blackbeard the Pirate ! :D

    Good Morning everyone...

    The migration is finishing up. All the HTML & images was moved overnight. I locked down the form on the older server and did a database backup and copied that over to the new server. Once the database was up and I could verify the server was running correctly on the new server I flipped over the DNS to point to the new IP address 67.227.167.4 and verified the change too https://www.whatsmydns.net/#A/www.electro-tech-online.com (Hello Sydney?)

    A previous migration exposed an issue with LaTex and I knew there would be problems this time... and I just spent about an hour debugging LaTex and fixed it by rolling back the version included with the new server. Side note... The LaTex editor wasn't working on the old site either...
    Now when you click

    things will work nice.. Just remember to wrap formulas with the latex command

    If you're still hitting the old site the DNS might be cached locally.

    Try flushing DNS if you can... on Chrome / Chromium try this

    chrome://net-internals/#dns

    Windows might need a reboot... can't remember it's been so long since I used it ..
