Just bumping this as a reminder that the site will experience some downtime tomorrow night around 11pm or 12am (May 19th). It shouldn't be that long of an outage and will almost certainly be back up before the morning crowd strolls in, but just in case, please make sure to make your NXT picks before 11pm tomorrow night as I will need to completely disable the database during this time so no picks/posts get lost in the transition.

Thanks in advance for your patience.

Lol at both of you. But MVH, you have access to the Admin forum so you know I said it shouldn't be that long. I just want to set expectations that it may take a while so if it does, there are no surprises. But again, I accidentally flipped the wrong switch last week when configuring the subdomain and the host had us back up before most people probably noticed so I'm hopeful it's not as big a deal as I originally thought. They do have 24/7 support and most of the techs I've talked to are pretty good. I've even got my checklist to hopefully make this seamless. The database backup and restore is the big time consumer as it will probably take the longest (30-60 minutes). At least when I trial ran it, it took about 20-30 min for each piece.

So yea please get those NXT picks in ASAP just in case.

Sorry guys. Haven't taken anything down yet. Been manually setting permissions on every folder because I forgot there was a recursive setting. Smh. Also, been a weird night for me. I went out earlier so I'm a little backed up right now so that's why I haven't finished taking the site down yet. Will post more later...

The upgrade is done. There were a couple issues with the changing of the hosting accounts and the new database server but it *should* be all fixed now. In the process, I updated the sidebar and changed the architecture from template inheritance to library inheritance to make it easier on myself for updates but almost everything should be fine for what is immediately necessary (PPV and WWE SW). I am still converting some of the pages to the new structure but those are mostly display issues. Please let me know if there are any functional issues today or tomorrow.

The real world was so scary. I wasn't prepared. I'll never leave SW again.

Lol. Yes I did sleep for about 4 hours. Otherwise I would have had this fixed at 4am or so. I just was annoyed with the host and tired so I sent Mack a DM on Twitter and went to sleep.

There's still something off about the deadline times. Like it's now 5-6 hours ahead which is weird.
