    Every thing looks ok so far.

    As of about 7pm PDT the DNS pointers still hadn't updated so I changed my primary and secondary DNS servers and it started resolving to the new host site. Flushing the DNS cache on Windows might help - from command line enter ipconfig /flushdns. Of course if you are reading this it doesn't matter as your DNS server should have updated at this point.

    Paul, I got your note about avatars and will look at that... but more importantly have been dealing with the data base thing..

    Back story- I've had to upgrade to quite a large server over the years, mainly to keep up with the one day load of the NASC auctions. That took me up to a $130-ish a month server. But for the rest of the year I use a very small portion of that awesome dedicated server. So the move was to a virtual private server, still don't share any resources with anyone so we don't have to worry about that. And the coolest thing, I can change my hardware configuration up and down for the nasc auction... if to a better server than I had before, and then down to something more reasonable for the rest of the year.

    I'm not sure what happened yesterday, but I was at was doing the family thing all day for my grandpa's funeral and didn't even know it was down. Fixed it this AM but couldn't find why it went down. Then it happened again this AM. Again, don't know why... So the other error you were just now getting was me upgrading to the next hardware package... we will see how that goes!

    Thanks all for your patients and understanding during these changes. And please make sure to let me know if you notice anything else not working quite right.
    Thanks!!
    Andrew

    Just got an update on the ticket for all the database issues.... I'm not much of a linux guy, but seems to make sense. Here's to hoping!

    Hello Andrew,

    While checking I can see some exim stat queries taking too much time to complete (around 1200s) and suspect this eventually putting mysql to an unresponsive state. I have now truncated the Exim stat database and enabled mysql monitoring in cPanel. Please keep monitor this and let us know if you still see any downtime with mysql.

    The image issue in reply #11 should be solved. ImageMagick has been installed and configured. (tested by uploading an image to a post, but didn't try avatars...)

    Thanks!

    No, that is hosted directly through a e-commerce site. But I did recently change that to a different one too .
