1fx. Forums is up for about 5 years now without any significant downtime. Since July 2011 it has been on the same box and it has proven itself stable and fast doing so.

Even though it's fully updated, the OS is quite old now and it needs an upgrade. Hardware also doesn't sit still. On this moment 1fx. Site & Forums are hosted on:
  • 1 core
  • 128 MB RAM
  • 5 GB HDD

We can upgrade to faster hardware for a lower monthly price:
  • 1 core
  • 256 MB RAM
  • 10 GB HDD

The OS will be upgraded from Debian 6 (Squeeze) LTS to Debian 7 (Wheezy). The forums will remain on this domain, 1fx.uk.to. The site will be updated to a new one and moved to a new domain, 1fxmod.org. This server is already up to date. Old links won't break since the forums URL will still be 1fx.uk.to/forums. This is seperately hosted due to the server that will serve 1fxmod.org is serving other sites and software as well.

The upgrade will happen between December 20th 2014 and January 1st 2015. The site should be up relatively soon (1fxmod.org). The forums may be down for a day or two.
