  • Site Upgrade Question

    By my calculations the vBulletin website has been down for over six hours. How long does it take Jelsoft to upgrade? Usually when I upgrade sites I already have it done and then just FTP the files and I am through... 15 minutes max. Does any one else take this long to upgrade their sites? Are they totally rewriting their site while it's down instead of doing it ahead of time?

    The worst part is, that they haven't even upgraded the forums yet... Right now it is just the members area and the main site that they are upgrading... So we dont really know how long it will take upgrade the forums until they actually upgrade them...

        It does seem a bit excessive, but I am sure they have their reasons.

          It is probably taking the most time to get the member area and order system setup right.

              I think the wait generates more hype than anything

                I seriously doubt that the back end of your site is anywhere near as complex what with all the database tie-ins to different areas of the site and to parts of other sites.

                  i was thinking that creating all the code before uploading, so whe uploading it will take 1 hour tops was what they were going to do. guess they found a problem somewhere or something, or just are making us wait. what about people who want another license. costing yourselves money now aitn you :P
                  Unlike most, I don't think I'm always right, if I'm wrong, CORRECT me.... providing you have some evidence

                      What if they need to modify the backend database? That could potentially take hours even if automated.

                      Since all the code has been updated, I would imagine the lisence databases, etc had to be updated as well to make it more efficient, etc.

                        Actually the issue is that two of the hamsters powering the server died and so FTP is a little slow right now. They are supposed to shipping in 4 new russian hairy footed hamsters to boost power on the server as we speak.

                          LMAO.

                          Thats good

                          Think about it, theres a lot of customer records on this site, if your account was *lost* would you be pleased about it?

                          Its not always uploading pre made files. Its testing, the most time consuming part.

                            I have my official souces that tell me that the license system is either being audited for bugs or just completely rewritten. As you are no doubt aware, the current system is quite buggy, randomly marking users as unlicensed and having licensed users not being properly flagged until a certain amount of time has passed or they populate all three e-mail fields.
