Post LOXophilia IP address is changing
Look for an IP address change before 1/1/2011. Exact date unknown but if you find the old server IP offline check the new one.

OLD IP 74.54.186.227 is changing to -> 74.86.171.202

Port 27910.

are you going to update the DNS IP too? or is that auto updated?

It has to be updated manually and will happen after the event.

Still waiting for the IP to change before updating anything.

The switchover to the new hardware will occur tonight sometime
after midnight -- or, rather, sometime early morning Dec 31st.

A certain amount of downtime is expected, perhaps an hour or so,
as the game servers on both the old and new systems need to be
shut down in order to synchronize the log files from old->new,
so that no data is lost.

Ok maybe extreme late morning :lol:

I’ve updated the DNS records but it could take up to 72 hours to propagate. Although the DNS update was almost instant on my domain http://mrcctv.joesiepkatech.com but it is still not on the http://www.clanwos.org. I put the IP address in and it works so there is no question about functionality just have to wait for the DNS records to propagate.

It might require a restart or something. If the IP is in cache and refreshed a lot it might not be looked up for a long time. I don't know how deacon changed it the last time.

I changed the A record, it is now up to the Web and DNS servers to refresh its DNS cache as it’s still resolving the old address. I cannot give it the command to flush the DNS and not sure if Deacon has that ability as I assume we are still on a shared server. I’m also hosting with HostGator same as Deacon but we are definitely on different servers, could also be in different datacenters.
