Server upgrade: Downtime possible

wheat's picture

Members & Guests,

I'm doing a backup right now and will be proceeding to the third and final step of the server upgrade process discussed previously. This will probably result in some (hopefully brief) downtime as I make certain necessary changes to configuration files on the server. I'll do my best to keep this downtime to a minimum. It is estimated to take less than one hour. After the upgrade, I should be able to enable some features that were not possible on the old server.

I will post a comment on this thread when the backup is complete and another before I launch the final step of the upgrade process. If anything goes wrong and you need to contact me, email wheatbread at gmail dot com (as wheat at wheatdesign dot com will be down along with bassplaying.com).

Cheers,

Wheat

Backups are complete

Backups are complete. I'll now be initiating step 3 of the server upgrade process. You can expect about 35 to 60 minutes of downtime starting right about now.

Update: Step 3 can only be done between 6:00 PM and 6:00 AM, PST. So I'll have to wait a bit before I can do anything. Feel free to post and comment. I'll post another comment before I initiate the upgrade.

Postponed to 6:00 PM today

BoH,

I just found out that I have to wait until 6:00 PM to initiate my upgrade. You can only do those between 6:00 PM and 6:00 AM, PST. So I'll chime back in when I kick it off. I'm in the EST zone, so that'll be sometime after 9:00 PM if you're out on the easter coast like I am.

Cheers,
