On Friday OR ISP got hacked and At 5:30 this morning our ISP got hacked again 5 times this month

We have now got space on a V-dedicated sever on a new provider but it will take time to move us over

Will that lead to taking the forum and website offline for a period of time?

We are using one of our old domains to set it all up once each section is done will do an auto direct for that section the forum is more likely to be the first as that is the easiest as there is no licence involved

it just a matter of uploading the forum database to the new site :roll: and point all to the new site just like we did when me moved here 4 years ago it was down for a few hours.

The ISP we are on now will still run for 6 months in the background

Small outage to day to move the site across to the new server and domain

the new domain is www.piano-tuners.org the old one will redirect
the forum should be faster

That should now be OK now as I reset the Cookies about 5 pm today
you may have to go into your setting for your browsers and delete the uk-piano.org Cookie
