We are taking the PRPNet server down for upgrades. It's not handling the challenge load as well as we'd like it to, and we think it's worthwhile to upgrade the hardware. Since this challenge runs all month long, it's worth a little bit of downtime to do the upgrade.

I expect the upgrades to take several hours. One way or another, we'll have it back online within 8 hours. Hopefully a lot less.

This is taking a little longer than expected, but so far everything is going well.

There are 4 big steps, and I suspect each will take about the same amount of time. The first step took about 90 minutes, and the second step has been running for an hour.

Based on that, if each step takes 90 minutes, we have about three and a half hours to go, plus a little extra time for some testing and software upgrades.

One step is to rip out the wiring from the old server and rewire properly. I'm just joking here, but didn't someone ask for pictures?

It's all virtually hosted servers (at Rackspace), so this "hardware upgrade" is done with a mouse rather than a screwdriver. Hence, no pics. :)

For those who are interested, we've doubled the amount of memory to 8 GB, replaced the spinning disks with SSD, and went from two CPU cores to 8 cores (4 cores with HyperThreading).

We're on the last big step now (Step 3 went faster than expected), so hopefully we'll get to the testing part pretty soon.

EDIT: That last big step is already done. On to testing and stuff...

We are back up!

If your PRPClient can't connect, please try shutting down and restarting PRPclient. It's conceivable it doesn't translate DNS addresses unless you restart it. The new server has a different IP address.

Likewise, if you're using the IP address rather than the DNS name, you'll need to change the address.

I use what's built into the downloaded files - we uncomment the proper line and then we can set up for a connection. What is the NEW IP ?

You SHOULD be using what's in the files, which is the DNS name. There's usually no good reasons to use the IP address, and lots of reasons not to use it. You can always, of course, look up the IP address using standard internet tools. (I won't list it here because I don't want to encourage people to use the IP address.)

If it's not connecting, the easiest thing to try to fix the problem is to reboot the computer.
