Hello Lovely AHA'ers,

The final phase of our Upgrade process is scheduled for Thurs. June 11th - Sat. June 13, 2020. Our internet host needs to move us to a new and better server with a new upgraded server operating system and a new database upgrade.

The whole website: A Happy Assembly, the Meryton Reading Room, Pemberley Library, et al, will be down and unavailable during the upgrade and server migration. Our IP address will change again and thus you may receive multiple error warnings if you try to go to meryton.com or AHA while we are down.

The AHA forums will be turned off and all users will be logged off at 1am Los Angeles time, Thurs. June 11th and will remain off until the upgrade is done. Due to current world events, this may take longer than expected so we are saying three days of downtime though it may be shorter.

Here is what you can do while we are updating and migrating:

1) Make sure you belong to our Facebook Group or our Google Group, so that you can get messages to update you on what is happening.

2) IF after the upgrade is complete and you still can't access the site, you may need to Flush your DNS (again) and/or use GoogleDNS or OpenDNS or 1.1.1.1 to be able to see the site once it is back. Hopefully, the DNS errors of the last few weeks will be solved with the upgrade and you will not need these methods.

It has been quite the 2.5 month thing to take a whole website and forum system from 2010 to 2020. Big thanks to the whole team of Admins and Mods working on the phases of the upgrade.

Thank you for your patience in advance.

A Happy Assembly
