DOWNTIME - 12th Dec 2020
« on: December 07, 2020, 06:21:16 PM »
Hi folks,

This coming Saturday, I'm going to be running an update on the server, which will give us some much-needed extra disk space, so I don't need to dump the logs quite so frequently... This process shouldn't take long, the host company estimates about 11 minutes. So call it 15 to be on the safe side.

I'm not sure what time, exactly, I'll be doing it, but I'll be aiming for around 08:00 GMT (between midnight & 3AM in the US, depending on where you are exactly; and about 7PM in Sydney, Australia).

After that, I plan to do some general maintenance and tidying up, so there may be further brief outages as services restart; but everything should be done within an hour.

Any questions, worries, etc., please don't hesitate to contact me!

Cheers,
Ade.
Cheers,
Ade

PS: I'll try to get the HTTPS upgrade done at the same time! Therefore, when the server comes back up, you might need to log in again.

Not sure of your password? Let one of the admins know, and we'll reset it for you.
Cheers,
Ade
