    We have outgrown the current server capabilities and so we will be moving to new and improved server soon.

    Stay tuned for more updates on the day of the move.

    Excellent! That is great news! Is G4E hosted in a datacenter or do you host it on your own premises?

    The move will just start after I make this post. This is done just to track down on the timing I would need to move the site to a new server. I am expecting the time to be 30 mins and I hope I am able to get it done within the 30 mins time frame.

    Sweet. I'm assuming everything went smoothly. Just out of curiosity, why the move? And where was it before?

    I was with theplanet which was acquired by Softlayer and the data center was in houston. The move is because of the growth in traffic and need for the better processing power of the box.

    Go4Expert in some pages is getting Internal Server Error because of non-compatible PHP scripts and we are working on it to get it resolved.
