We paid for the server at the end of 2004. Â£1200 for over 4 years hosting is a pretty good deal. scoophost has taken the decision to move off the server that we helped pay for because it's having too many hardware problems.
The agreement from 2005 was that your one time payment would pay for hosting for the life of the hardware. At this point it's had a motherboard replacement, CPU and RAM replacements and now it's having SCSI bus problems so the decision has been made to decommission it. The regular clients (all with relatively small sites, using the standard codebase) will be moved to our other servers but at this point we don't have capacity to dedicate a box or deploy a vserver for your site on the other servers. I can certainly help you move the site to any virtual server or dedicated server provider you select.
So, I need to find a new place to host us all.
Specs for the machine we need to host HuSi. In a week.
At least 3 gb disk space.
2 gb of memory.
A cpu (any modern cpu will do)
I'm not sure about the bandwidth requirements yet. I'm going to do some log file analysis and I'll update the story then.
