Server maintenance

Post by lgromanowski » 20 Nov 2012, 21:59

Hi,
in next week (at weekend - 1-2.12.2012) I will temporary move forum, wiki and bugtracker from OVH to Mydevil.net server (where our wordpress is located), because I need to check hardware, file system and make some changes in server configuration. There should be small downtime related to DNS changes. After checks and configuration change forum, wiki and bugtracker will be moved back to OVH. I will also send e-mails with this information few days before planned maintenance.
best regards,
Lukasz

Keep up the great work.. OpenMW.org copes well for a non-profit site.

Is there any chance we could get a temporary "Site Maintenance" page during the downtime?

Keep up the good work lgro!

Thanks for all your hard work lgro! It's easy to overlook the fact that every time we come to this site it's up and functional. That's only possible because of a lot of hard work by our site admin, so thank you!

I've missed this one. Yes, there will be some kind of "Site maintenance" page, but transition should be short (in theory) and it should take ~3 minutes and it will be done when there is the lowest traffic on website, so I think nobody would notice it.

Ok, so first part of server maintenance is done - forum, wiki and bug tracker are placed on mydevil server (mandark.openmw.org), and OVH server (deedee.openmw.org) will be rebooted with file system checks.

If you encounter any problems with forums, wiki or bug tracker please let me know.

@Greendogo: Missing post, PMs, etc. should be restored and visible now.
best regards,
Lukasz
