PS. We need to discuss moving the docs site to .com suffix which will complete that migration. I’ll need to look into Github’s recent allowance of HTTPS for custom domains – which also means we won’t need Cloudflare’s services essentially.

Totally fine – we can whack it on the roadmap, no worries. I’ve got some time tonight if it’s easy to do, and honestly I have about 3x safe levels of caffeine in my system from earlier on so the timing’s good.

Not yet, but it’s coming. I decided to postpone until the whole job is done. I’m a terrible beer drinker, I have maybe 5 a year maximum.

Re: Server migration - status, discussion

Hi Jakob, we only now use Cloudflare on Textpattern sites to enforce HTTPS on the docs site (which is a Jekyll powered GitHub Pages site). Up until very recently you couldn’t have a custom domain pointing to a GitHub Pages site and have it run as HTTPS – so we use Cloudflare as a middleman to incept requests and rewrite to HTTPS.

Now GitHub do allow custom domains with HTTPS natively I can get rid of this service.

Cloudflare is still very good in my opinion and their caching is excellent – but Pete’s server build is also very fast so instead of handing our DNS to a third party (which occasionally can be subject to outages and attacks) we can simply drop their services here without any performance impact.

Re: Server migration - status, discussion

Hi,
FYI, on the main textpattern.com domain, the Documentation and Themes menu items are still linked to the .io extension.

Hi Nicolas! The documentation is currently living on .io (so that is correct), but will soon move to .com instead. There is some work happening today and during this week, philwareham and I are continuing with behind-the-scenes work to consolidate and simplify some things.

Edit: now moved to docs.textpattern.com

Re: Server migration - status, discussion

Docs are now at docs.textpattern.com. We still need to redirect any traffic that goes to docs.textpattern.io, but that will happen during this week.

Done.

I’m tail-ing the log files, but it looks like anything hitting docs.textpattern.io transfers quickly and seamlessly to an equivalent URL on docs.textpattern.com with a 301 redirect as the cherry on the frosting on the cake.

Re: Server migration - status, discussion

Hi again,
Thanks for your work on the migration.
I just noticed that any search on the forum renders a 404 error because it is searching on the .com domain while the forum is still on the .io.

Oh, yes. The forum is partway migrated (I’ve update some of the codebase for the new home). This will be fixed as the site moves to the new server very soon.
