SikhNet Server Upgrades

It seems like ages since I last sat in my office late trying to work out the problems which always seem to come up when you do a major upgrade to a server. We have outgrown our current webserver for and just got a great new server which should give us room for more growth and increase the speed of the website.

I’m still in the office trying to work out these problems relating to the upgrade. Basically I had to migrate all the data and programs to the new server which is a little bit of juggling, all while trying to minimize how long the server is down to users.

Why am I on here right now? Well…I’m waiting for a database to update and it is taking ages. I hope people are not getting frustrated while trying to reach SikhNet/SikhMatrimonials.

    Answer to your problems? buy an AS400 or iSeries. Get away from windows based solutions.

  2. GuruKa Singh Ji & Gurumustak Singh Ji,
    it’s not really a comment. I am writting to ask you if you have your sources to get the pictures of palanquin being taken to Shri Nanakana Sahib Ji. In the newspapers there are only one or two photographs. We want to see million of those pictures. Media is not taking lot of pictures, even if they are, they are posting many. see if you can do something about it. Thank you. Chardhi Kalan, Wahe Guru Ji Ka Khalsa || Wahe Guru Ji ki Fateh !!

  3. We are not involved with the media that much. You can see some pictures from recent news at:

    SSA Gurumastak Singh Ji,
    Why dont we have to take the website down. Just migrate the whole site to new server and test it using IP address and once you sure its ready to go then u can log into the DNS server (Management console) and change the A record pointing to new public IP.
