Tomorrow, May 16th, I will be moving the Garden.org servers from one data center to another. It seems like we just did this and it's true but the data center we're in has been very unreliable for us and has gone offline 3 times in as many months.

So, sometime tomorrow I'll be moving the servers to a new location and that process will take an hour or two. If you try to access the site tomorrow and it's offline, rest assured it'll be back up as soon as possible.

Hope it all goes smoothly, Dave. Having just done this at my workplace last week with one of our servers, I know it can be a real pain if things don't go to plan!

Dave, the Forum Search feature may have been compromised in the move. I've searched for names of roses in the Roses Forum and received this response each time:

Query failed: connection to localhost:3312 failed (errno=111, msg=Connection refused). No matches found.

I've deliberately chosen names that I know to have been discussed in numerous forum threads, but no matches are ever found.

@dave

Every search function I've tried has had an issue.

All the searches are limited to single word searches. If you try to search for more than word at a time, there are no results (even when I know they exist).

As Zuzu said, Forum search returns this message irregardless of the number of words searched,
"Query failed: connection to localhost:3312 failed (errno=111, msg=Connection refused). No matches found."

I've been getting false &/or multiple notifications of tree mails today. I know another member who has experienced the same today.
