[2011-03-10] Server move for forums

Postby Mireiawen » 2011-02-24 13:50 GMT

I will be doing a server move in March; exact date is still open due to real life requirements.

This will cause few things; Neutnet forums will be down for several hours, and server IP addresses will change so DNS update might make it even longer than necessary. I'm expecting around 12 hours of downtime, but it might be faster; it depends on how fast I can move databases and filesystem data between 2 systems over Internet. Estimate is based on test I did for partial data earlier, and scaled up.

However, it does not affect in-game bots.

I am hoping that change provides more stable connection; so far, there's been no connection drops from the new server in 2 weeks time I've been testing them.

The move is happening Thursday, 2011-03-10, starting around 04 UTC.

Okay, trying to get the server move done on 10 of March; likely starting around midday in UTC, hoping to finish all before midnight.

Starting it somewhat earlier, but the day is same. Got to get around some RL stuff and co-ordinate DNS changes with ISP, so had to move it to earlier. Starting around 04 UTC today.

Stuff is mostly working for now, mail server move is giving some problems and at least one restart is still coming, but forums should be back in use again.

Everything should again be working as they were.
