Hi All,

The current server that MTS is hosted on is getting quite old now (It was ordered and installed in 2012). In order to keep up with changing hardware, and get a better performing site, I am moving to a newer, faster, better server.

I have already taken a backup and copied it to the new server, plus done most of the configuration. All that remains is to sync the remaining files, the database, and make sure everything works.

I will be migrating MTS over to a new server start Friday 26th June. To that end, the site will be completely offline starting that date and lasting for at least 1 day (possibly more, but I doubt it).

I will, of course, keep everybody updated via my twitter feed.

Regards
Delphy

It will be the same web address, just the hardware being upgraded.

As said, the domain will be the same, just your old knowing site modthesims.info
The change is more inside so to say. It's actually the same as that you will buy yourself a new pc, because the one you have can't handle newer games.
And that is also happening with MTS. Because the current server, which is in simple words a big computer, can't handle the job anymore it's time to move to a newer one.

Server was down quite a lot in this year. It's nice to know that site is getting an upgrade!

You know, I've always wanted to know what the MTS server banks look like. And not those yellow wire banks.

I seem to be having the same problem as EmpathLunabella - just uploaded an updated .zip of one of my creations and it doesn't show up, Download tab still only shows (and downloads) the old version. Re-uploaded it twice but no joy. Jpgs, however, do go through fine. TIA for looking into this

ETA: Just took another look and the zip file still hasn't gone through, so looks like it's fallen into a black hole somewhere!

Hooray!! So glad the site is back up...and that the second go at it was successful!! I sure missed it last night. Most organized site (imho) out there and yesterday showed how heavily I rely on it. I was truly thrilled when it launched first thing. Welcome back my old friend! :D

@Delphy do you want to know about "Invalid URL" and stuff or does the new stuff just need time to settle in?

@Esmeralda @EmpathLunabella -- try again now, I had the same issue earlier (not being able to edit existing posts) but it is working fine now for me.

ETA: there is still issues with Unicode characters though it appears (at least in my signature .. ). Fixed.

I'm seeing that appear about half the time when I click any of the site links, but the pages always seem to still be there and intact, it just takes a few tries of refreshing the tab for them to display properly. Looks like more of an annoyance than an out-and-out "problem" at this point.

@plasticbox - Thank you for checking, but I'm still having the problem - been trying to upload my .zip file repeatedly all day and it will just not go through. Pics go through fine and I can edit my posts fine, the system just refuses to accept a new zip file for some reason!

Sometimes it takes a LOT of refreshing to get the Invalid URL to go away. Glad to know it's not just my internet or my iPad.

I've been trying to track down the Invalid URL thing all day (on my birthday no less :P) and it's a real bugger to try and work out. Right now it appears to be behaving, but I don't know how long it'll last...

Is it intentional that upload section is still down? I get the "Uh Oh! Maintenance mode!"-screen, with twitter feed (thanks for adding that by the way! And for twittering what's going on, very kind).

If you have questions on how to use SimPE or WW, you're welcome to PM me.
