New server

Postby Mike Towler » Mon Jun 15, 2015 8:58 am

Dear all,

Just to let you know that I've spent a few days building a new dedicated server for the various web sites that I run (which were all previously on the same shared server). The CASINO forum has now been moved to it, along with the main CASINO QMC site http://vallico.net/casinoqmc and the Apuan Alps Centre for Physics site http://vallico.net/tti/tti.html. The main Psi-k network website http://psi-k.net will be moved tomorrow; as it has almost 3000 users rather more care is needed.

Other than a http --> https switch the change should be transparent, but I'm letting you all know about this since:

(1) I want to check that the email notifications still work properly
(2) I would be grateful if you could let me know if you encounter any problems resulting from this switch

One of the reasons for doing this is that some of the Psi-k mass emails were ending up in people's spam folders. Having a dedicated server where we have full control over the DNS record will help alleviate this problem, as will (presumably) not having to share a commercial server with actual spammers trying to sell crack.

Thanks, and best wishes,
Mike

Well, Mike, how do you know it wasn't the quantum chemistry emails that were fouling things up for the crack spammers?!?
