Server migration!

Postby clem on Wed Jan 17, 2007 8:37 am

Hi,

We're currently on a server called lt.k1011.nutime.de. In the following days we're going to migrate to a different server and update our DNS so that linuxmint.com points to the new one.

This will affect you:

- if you're currently using the mint repository, you'll have to update your sources.list and change the URL to linuxmint.com when the DNS are updated.

- the forums themselves will be closed for a period of time (the time for us to migrate the DB and for the DNS to get updated.. let's say 2 days).

So if you come here and the forums are closed or something is not working the way it should this week, don't panic.. we're working on it :)

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

The server migration went well and is now complete. Make sure to change the address of the repository to linuxmint.com in your sources.list.

What exactly do we have to change?? Can you please be a bit more precise...I do not have much knowledge of how the sources.list works. :)

Hi Manish,

First delete the line referring to lt.k1011.nutime.de if you had added the repository before, then follow the instructions here:

Hi Clem,
After migration the RSS feed gives the following warning:
Sorry, but this board is currently unavailable. Please try again later.

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.
