[NOT HAPPENING] Upgrade and downtime tonight at midnight

Postby Ellimist » Wed Aug 22, 2018 12:52 pm

Update: I decided to cancel on the upgrade tonight. I just looked at the upgraded version of the theme and it's completely bare. I'll work on the theme to get it more similar to this one, and get the pictures and the logos up.

Once it's properly customised, I'll schedule the move. Sorry for the confusion, and the inconvenience


Hello all,

Sorry for the short notice, but I'm going to upgrade the board to phpBB 3.2 and move it to a server in London at midnight (23/18/2018 00:00:00). I estimate the downtime to be for about an hour and a half (I'm being generous because the upgrade process is probably a bit perilous), but things should be back up within two hours at most.

The change of location should also lead to faster load times as the site is coming geographically closer to its main users. Average ping times to Italy (where this site is hosted now) from the UK was around 30-40ms, but that should reduce to <10 ms.

Thanks,
Ellimist

Can you get a job with London Underground and cancel all their engineering works as well?

They're a pain in the arse
