While the transfer, installation and tests are performed, the forums will need to be offline as it's not clear what would happen to any posts made during this period. We will give out plenty of notice before the switch occurs - the date depends somewhat on the testing we're doing now.

 10-08-2013, 05:34 PM #4 dgatsoulis Orbinaut I tested a preview of a new post with LaTex, Insert Image, YT video link, link to a website with insert link, code tags for posting a scenario and quote tags. Also the multiquote button. The only thing that didn't work was the $tags (LaTex) PHP Code:  [math] \alpha + \beta = \gamma$   produced: Quote: [LaTeX Error: One or more directories do not exist] It works ok here:

That's not a speed issue but a limitation placed on the forum to prevent someone attacking the site by hitting it with repeated search requests. I don't see why, with the new host, that couldn't be modified but I'll leave that to the web experts to discuss.

I think I know how I broke that...

Once the move is complete and load balancing is done we will decide how to adjust the monthly donation target if necessary. EDIT: Quote: Originally Posted by Artlav  Nice. Can anyone give me an elevator pitch on what is "Cloud provider", and how is it different from "Hosting"? Nowadays the terms are synonymous, although "Cloud Provider" is a newer term and implies (to me, at least) a server farm running VMs, whereas "Hosting" could be anything from a traditional server farm (no VMs) to a cloud provider (all VMs).

It depends on how technical you want to get. hosting = you get a server (or a vm) with set disk space and bandwidth. Cloud = you get compute and storage resources and you use as much as you need and pay for that usage. These days, as dbeachy1 says the two terms are fairly interchangeable with cloud being a very fancy word for hosting. Any sensible hosting facility would actually use a public cloud style setup.
