We Are All Insane
Me to Marty: I've updated SWMNBMIMB's website in the past week, and I can see the changed pages on the server and through the GoLive ftp browser -- but those pages aren't up -- the same old pages are up, still -- which means there's some caching going on somewhere, doesn't it? Do you have a back-up server running or something? I am phlegmatic about the whole thing, however SWMNBMIMB referred a client to her site two days ago and really needed the pages to be up to date. What do you think is going on? I must go now and continue banging my head against the wall...
Marty to Me: Hi. We are in the process of switching servers which likely explains your problem. Do you have an entire backup of your site? If so, I can give you the details to upload it to the new server. If not, I can do a backup of your site as is now, and transfer it over and give you the new login details, etc. Which do you prefer? I'll be monitoring my email for the next few hours and can do this tonight if you're still up and at it :)
Me to Marty: Am I right in thinking that if you back-up and give me the login details, then I can make the changes after that? That sounds like the path to enlightenment. Why don't you do it tomorrow, however, as it is not that freakin' crucial. If you stay up late do it for fun and not work -- [it was past midnight for him]
Marty to Me: I'm almost done with the transfer. I imagine by the time you get this (after
9am EST) the transfer will be done.
Me to Marty: I felt stupid last night when I said "do it tomorrow" when I realised "tomorrow" was a Saturday -- I never know what day it is. However, it seems that you don't, either, so that's good.
