    you might ask: but I don't see anything different?
    This phrase is geared toward Server, DNS, SSL changes

    that's right, this site is now running on my own built private server,
    you should see speed improvements
    and please don't forget to report any bug you might encounter

    Phrase two would be converting forum system and bridging blog,
    that's why some downtime are expected (and I will try to keep it minimal),

    the maintenance is currently scheduled for sometime between Sometime in August (subject to change)
    this is a quick update, this post is subject to change, please come back and check updates

    side note: this site's database is humongous

    Is it possible to redirect /forum.php to the new main page address? I keep getting 404's using old auto-complete URLs (yes I do know how to change that but just being thoughtful of others who may think we are under maintenance). Thanks

    Yes, totally possible.
    Did we have redirect before? what was the rules like
    e.g
    /forum.php ---> forum.turboduck.net/
    /forum.php?anything-xxyy ---> forum.turboduck.net/?anything-xxyy

    the webserver we are currently on is nginx, which is different from previous apache2,
    so .htaccess file won't work, either way, backup process don't include . files

    enabled SMTP email tested working (was originally planning to do this after system change)

    also logo is not displaying, this will be fixed at phrase two.
