My apps are switching hosts! - A Blog Post for GameBanana

EDIT 2: I went with Hostinger instead for the time being because the Apache2 configuration was too fucked up for the apps to even work properly. I had to downgrade my PHP version, and then on top of that, settings pages were refusing to load. Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused. I'll reattempt the move to Google Cloud at a later date.

EDIT: I've been having trouble recieving my certificate from Comodo, it may not arrive until tomorrow. Apps may be unusable until then. The new domain has been purchased though, at ware.bonkmaykr.xyz

Please be warned that I am moving all of these to a new server.

The previous server was hosted on a free provider from Hostinger, called 000webhost. 000webhost has a lot of server crashes and also has low resources. Because of this, people were experiencing tons of issues due to server downtime, with profile modules not appearing and settings pages just not loading! Additionally, I couldn't implement file uploads because of the measly 300MB storage space which I had to use very conservatively. People often had to host their assets on separate hosts which caused a lot of confusion.

Soon I'll be moving to a Debian Linux server run on Google Cloud. It will cost money, but it hopefully should eliminate these problems I've been having lately. Additionally, I'll have more control over the server directly. I'll be controlling an entire machine instead of just a control panel, which is nice.

I'll edit each submission with a message once migration starts and when it ends. It will be a while. Until then, you don't need to worry about anything.

    I'd suggest mentioning NOT to change your profile guardians until after the server switch, which in turn will still be active unless changed.
