So to get the new site up, we have to clone the old site, so we can work on it.
Behold the tale of UGH.
Due to the site’s size, I will open a ticket for you with our happiness engineers.
Thanks for chatting with Sam today! They’ve passed on your support request and it’s now in the hands of our Happiness Engineers. From here, we’ll investigate further and reach out again with an update as quickly as possible.
Eden here from the Flywheel team, just wanted to pop through a quick message to confirm we have been working on cloning the site manually for you as you spoke about with Sam in chat however are coming up against some roadblocks with the size of the site’s database.
Long story short, the site is too large to be cloned. I will need to rebuild it from scratch on the server and then merge the two.
::rocking back and forth::
I have writing to do. Instead I may have to do this. I don’t know what will survive on the site at the end of this adventure. This is the official notification that wonkiness may occur.
I have exported the entirety of blog posts database. I’ve been urged by several librarians to save it somewhere, because apparently librarians do not want to throw anything away. The XML was almost 300 MB, and so I had to break it down by year. It’s a certainty that old posts will have to go. In honor of this noble sacrifice, I present to you the three first ever posts on this site.
Brace yourself for the great wisdom and profound revelation of Ilona Andrews 2009.

The bartender says “For you, no charge.”

War doesn’t decide who is right, only who is left.
Nothing has changed.
