Site maintenance this weekend - 2nd/3rd July

Post by timtim » Sat Jul 02, 2011 6:38 pm

Hi all,
As you can probably tell there is some site maintenance going on. Today we have done a major upgrade to the Linux distribution running on the server and we are optimising the web server following that. We expect the wikis to come back online later today (the 2nd). This will mean further restarts/possible downtime today, but hopefully you should notice everything is running a lot more quickly!

Tomorrow we will be doing maintenance upgrading the wikis, blog and various other bits along with some enhancements to combat spam.

This is all building up to the promised move back to a wiki for the main portal which will not be happening this weekend, but is coming really soon!

Cheers.

Update - most of the wikis, forums and downloads areas are back online.

So far 31/35 subdomains have been migrated from apache 2 to nginx - hence the lengthy downtime and the speed up in services following it!

The remaining missing subdomains will be back online tomorrow. The upgrades may have to wait until next weekend as the wikis took a lot longer than I was expecting!

Cheers,
