Planned Downtime

    Hello people of akiba,

    due to some problems with the hardware, we will have to change some components. (one of the php-backend-servers already crashed away)
    Since this is the perfect opportunity to upgrade the whole system, i'm going to announce a downtime.

    Since we have loads! of small files, this could take up to 24h.

    The Downtime will start, as soon as the full backup (that is running atm) will be done.
    I think, this will be done in about 2 hours.

    The workflow will be s.th. like this:
    1) disable the board-access
    2) sync the last changes
    3) backup the database
    4) kill the whole system
    5) reinstall the new System (with changed hardware)
    6) re-setup the backends and forum
    7) upgrade the system-software (optional)
    8) opening up the forum
    9) starting to rebuild search-index, preview-images, etc
    10) done

    That is one intense sounding 10 step plan. Thanks for all you do!

    Done are
    1, to 5,
    7 (sort of)

    running atm:
    6: loads of attachments are still missing. we are still copying.
    9: search-index is rebuild, as i write this; image-caches will be re-enabled, asap the attachments are done transfering.

    11: setting up some new versions of caching, since we now have a lot of RAM, which isn't used :)

    I actually used the word "dipshit" today for the first time in years! What a coincidence! The bigger coincidence is that I was responding to one on a forum.
