virtually moving stuff around

I didn’t realize it would take so much effort trying to move six websites from one server to another. In the span of one week I have supervised two server database moves and several DNS refreshes due to misunderstandings and other technical anomalies.

Thank God the people involved are technically adept to remedy the situation quickly. When this is all done, we’ll all have to celebrate!

Tip: duplicate the site before switching DNS. 🙂

And never delete stuff from any of your servers for the next few weeks, you just might need them.
