Web Site Migration is Keeping Me Busy

January 10, 06 by kenrich

Yeah, I realize I haven’t been blogging too much here. I’ve been a little bit busy in the past few weeks. I am currently involved in migrating a host of websites over to new servers and (at the same time) converting those sites from Microsoft SQL Server database to MySQL.

We are doing the switch in order to provide clients with a more stable hosting environment with a 24-hour support staff. It will also provide clients with a web hosting control panel allowing them to manage all aspects of their hosting. The conversion to MySQL is for reliability and performance reasons.

In the process of converting our sites into MySQL, I am actually writing the code so that it will support both Microsoft SQL Server and MySQL. That way, if the client wishes to move back to SQL Server, it’s only a simple matter of changing the database connection string. This gives us the best of both worlds.

I sure will be happy when the conversion is completed. It has taken a lot of time to do so far and we are about 75% done with only two weeks left. I guess I should get back to work and jamming on these sites. Hope that I will have some time to blog here in the future.
