Dream on... This is the "real world of servers" -- point and guess (and hope) is not an option.

But, more seriously, for anyone who knows how to manage servers, it's quite easy. 1&1 will give a month's free service for a server upgrade. Any sysadmin worth their salt could do such a transition in less than a day:

1. Spin up the new server.
2. Install the OS upgrades.
3. Transfer the data as it is at that point in time.
4. Give an announcement of an outage.
5. Shut down the HTTP / HTTPS / DB services on the old server.
6. Rsync the data from the old server to the new server (only changes will be transferred).
7. Start the HTTP / HTTPS / DB services on the new server.
8. Change the A records for the domain.

If done properly, the users should only experience about ten minutes or so of unavailability.

And, to offer, I would be happy to provide unprivileged access to one of my two L2 servers for free experimentation. Even if you (George) don't decide to go with 1&1 for the final solution, this might be worthwhile for the initial migration to a LAMP stack.

As a web server admin for California University of Pennsylvania (http://www.calu.edu/) I wanted to make note that I also use 1&1 for personal stuff. I've never had a problem with their service, though Cal U doesn't use 1&1 - we have our own data center.

I also though, am a big fan of MS IIS web servers and MS SQL Server but admit that PHP doesn't run as stably as any of the .net languages, Java ( w/a java parser), or perl on IIS.

Though come to think of it I'm not sure PHP is truly stable on any web platform.

0100 UTC-

Is anyone else having problems with Prime95 updating expected completion dates? I have attached a screen shot of the error message.

It is possible that there are local causes, as I just swapped out my internet router.

If at first you don't succeed, keep trying. I finally got the update status to complete. I still got the Server Busy response a few times, but eventually it went through.

Just to follow up on this...

I've now tried for three days to get through to Amazon's ECS people to talk with a human. Probably spent over $50 USD on hold, since their "1-800" number doesn't work from Barbados.

As an experiment, I called 1&1's Dedicated Server Support department (using their 1-877 number which *does* work from Barbados), and was talking with a human within 30 seconds.

My take-away? I will never use Amazon for anything mission-critical.

(And, yeah. I paid their $1.28 bill which they kept sending me scary emails about.)

Default Database down?

I'm currently getting database related php errors on mersenne.org as well as through Prime95. Anyone else having issues like this or is it just me?

Yup. She's definitely dead, Jim.

What is interesting is this seems to correlate with "Factor Found" results, which appears to result in a memory leak.

This has been reported to "The powers that be" for several years, and yet ignored. They just do the "Three finger salute" when it's pointed out to them.

Should just put a 1-line batch file in startup:
Code:
shutdown /r /t 86400
Would solve any number of problems.

Have you tried turning it off and on again? OK, you turned it off; have you turned it back on?
