I am referring to the post below dated 6 Jan. 2004; it is now 2 April 2004. Exactly what is Westhost’s definition of “nearing”? It would be better when posting a report like this that Westhost periodically tell us what the progress or lack of is being made on an effort. Not just let it sit on the Board for weeks or months until someone remembers it's there.
Posted: Tue Jan 06, 2004 9:25 pm Post subject: WestHost 2.0 Upgrade Update
We are nearing completion on our preparations for remaining WestHost 2.0 Upgrades. Our efforts have included work on an upgrade tool that will:
* Give you complete control over the time and date of your account upgrade
* Provide full reporting on the upgrade process, allowing you to verify the settings of your account before upgrading
* Automatically publish and e-mail all necessary information for using your new 2.0 account
* Allow you to “roll-back” the upgrade if it is not done to your satisfaction
All remaining 1.0 clients will be notified of the availability of this tool and given the opportunity to use it. If they choose not to use the tool, they will receive notification and schedule of a more automated upgrade.
If you would prefer to receive ADVANCED notification of the WestHost 2.0 Upgrade Tool, please complete the WestHost 2.0 Upgrade Request form at https://corp.westhost.com/upgrade2/.

It is the highest priority in our IT department. It is being worked on all day and every day of the working week. A premature release of this tool as you can imagine would be catastrophic. This is why we are taking every precaution possible to assure that it will work flawlessly.
We know that some are getting frustrated and to those we say sorry. We want this to come out just as much as our clients do. Please be patient with us as we are trying to make your satisfaction our highest priority.

Since the "tool" will only have a limited life. Once everyone is updated to WH2 it's no longer needed. Wouldn't it have been better to have taken the development time over the last 5 months and simply updated the sites the old fashioned way?

There are several problems with having us upgrade people manually. Some of them are:
- You will have to move all of your web files to the new server manually.
- Configure all scripts manually with the new paths (if necessary).
Also, you will need to expect the following:
- Your WestHost 1.0 account will be deleted 72 hours after the DNS change.
- You may experience some syncing issues with your databases and e-mail during the DNS change.
- The DNS change can take up to 8 hours.
- We are not responsible for any problems that may arise due to an early upgrade.
