Downtime (just a few hours)

I’m moving my website to a new server (to have php 5.4) – therefore the website will be down for a few hours.

Everything should be up and running in a few hours and I’ll use this (semi-interesting) blog post to mention how content I’m with my provider:
Today I asked if it was possible to move my account to another server with php5.3/php5.4-support because the current server offers php5.3, but only via CGI. This usually is not a big thing, but there are certain drawbacks: For example it’s not possible to use “flush()/ob_flush()”. (Well you can use it, but the page is being sent in one piece anyway). Of course php via CGI was the last thing I thought of .. Before that I tried lots of different esoteric stack overflow hints (“Always send a Carriage Return!”, “Send at least 200 characters before each flush()” and so on..) until I finally realized it might have something to do with the server.

Well, long story short, a few minutes (sic!) later I received an e-mail that this is no problem and my webspace can be moved to another server if desired.

By the way: It seems the Akismet Anti-Spam plugin has some major problems the last weeks – because 95% of all posts I receive for review are spam. Not a very big deal, because I’m talking about 10 to 30 posts per week and according to the stats last month about 19.000 posts were directly marked as spam… – but if you sent a useful comment and it’s not released yet, well that might be the problem, sorry..

This isn’t meant to be stupid advertising or to promote the partner-link below (you’re of course welcome to use it, but I think it’s only interesting for German users) – it’s rather a recommendation.

So, honestly recommended as provider: all-inkl.com.
