The server management company picks the best time early in the morning to reformat the server. It will probably take two hours and after which, we have to transfer all files back to the server, including the databases. It gives me the excuse to stay up till daylight again.
Mike: “after this format…we will have a faster, more stable, security server !”
During the process, however, all the sites will be down. Even for my blog, which is currently hosted in Blogspot or Blogger, will be affected since a couple of scripts and files are linked from my main site.
