Alright, sometime shortly after this post goes live I am going to push the test site to live. I just downloaded our 37.1GB site backup.
It isn’t finished, but it is good enough at the moment.
Please post any comments, suggestions, or hate as a reply to this post, so it can be promptly ignored.
Side note, 5.56 Timeline is getting its own subdomain. Check out 556timeline.looserounds.com
Couple of minor notes:
On the new site, our SQL database is under half the size of our old site. Something was causing excessive bloat. I don’t know what, but our backend is leaner now.
We switched to the Newspaper theme. It isn’t quite set up the way we want, but it is close. What is nice is that it has built into it several of the features we were using plugins for. Hopefully not having to use those plugins will increase performance and reduce server CPU usage.
But who knows? It is not like I know what I am doing.
