Linode? More like lil' chode.

Shitpost aside, I'm mostly concerned about loss of information or accounts during the move. I'm sure it's not a concern, but I'm no programmer and wouldn't know.

Account information shouldn't be lost since it's usually all in the same database. So when we do a database backup, you just drop-in the schema+data on the new server, and it's all good.

The real concern is migrating much of the server's custom functionality to a new unit. This is stuff like cache settings, symlinks, etc, and it always goes lost because you lose track of all the shit you do to get the server working. The worst that happens here, of course, is that the forum doesn't even start until those settings are reintroduced.

DigitalOcean is a great provider, it's very reliable and affordable as well. Just keep in mind if you're running 8chan stuff on it they probably won't allow the... pedo boards to be hosted on their servers. Another website many are aware of here ran into this issue in 2014 and was forced to remove all infringing content or faced a shutdown.

I guess we're "pulling a Chris" so to speak. Linode left the kurig on, and burned down the internet. Now we gotta move out temporarily before we can add to the new remodeled autistic hoard all over again. Damned Dirty Trolls...

And then spending the next 2 weeks - 6 months fixing all the tiny bugs

And how the fuck will any of us function without the pedo boards?

EDIT: you're all being very Islamophobic right now. #problematic
