Breaking down the Cluster

Hey everyone, just posting this here so everyone can find it 🙂

I decided to break down my server cluster and move the sites onto their own individual servers – the idea originally with the cluster was having multiple massive servers control the different functions of my websites, but the issue that keeps arising is that when one has problems, it causes problems on my entire network of sites, so I’m taking a different approach and moving everything onto their own individual servers, this way load or service issues from one site will be isolated and no longer effect all the other servers.  Also when upgrades are required it will just cause downtime of one site, instead of everything.

Anywho, this process will take the next few weeks, I will be moving and testing each site individually one at a time, the schedule below is tentative and just a rough outline of when to expect downtime at your favorite site.  For each day listed, the downtime will be at 2 AM Eastern Time – the downtime itself actually should be very brief, as the site will be set up and tested beforehand so the actual move is just a matter of updating the database, and switching the IPs.  The IP Propogation part can take a while in some regions though unfortunately, so if you experience downtime longer than an hour or so, I would reccomend clearing your cache, clearing DNS cache, and if that doesn’t work then unfortunately the only thing you can do is wait for your local ISPs to propagate the new IPs for the sites.  The downtime will only effect the specific site listed for that date.
