Oh that explains a lot. I keep answering you, LOL. Lets get you on the 
list, ffs.

As I mentioned to you once off list and a few times you wouldn't have 
seen onlist, the site has been tested on newer versions of MySQL so I'm 
not worried.

A 10-minute outage doesn't seem like a huge deal to me, given our site 
traffic. It also doesn't seem to matter much to me if its 2/24 or 3/1. 
However I've been hoping to find a time when Philip will be around in 
case there's some weird unexpected incompatibility.

As it stands my plan was to hit him up when I get back from the DMV this 
afternoon and then spend 10 minutes finding the button, hit it, and then 
poke around when it was done.

I'm not super familiar with RDS, but I figure I can hit the 'migrate' 

If the 10 minutes bothers you and you'd rather do the clone-and-cut-over 
process, let me know and I can hand it off to you. I'm not even sure 
where to update the DB info in the PHP and stuff.
