It looks good to me

The hammer hasn't dropped yet.

 

I'm hoping I've done all the things they need done but even then, moving a 70 GB web site from one server to another over the Internet is no piece of cake. Sure, it will compress down to about 40 gigs ... but you're still talking about a 6 hour transfer before you even get started.

PS: I'm suspecting that we will 'close' the forum during the transfer and upgrade. We don't need new posts being written to the database and the like.

The nerd in me is curious....dedicated server or VPS?

 

Unless the pipes between old and new are slow, transferring 40 (or even 70) gigs shouldn't take that long. Are you downloading a backup first and then uploading or going directly from old server to new server?
