Mystery

Server Transfer and Downtime

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone~!

Following Ind's resignation from his administrator position last month, we've been working on transferring our services to a new host.

Some services have already been transferred without any downtime (most notably the stat-server), and now it's finally time to move the rest.

The remaining services will be transferred during the upcoming week, starting tomorrow (Sunday, June 28th). You can expect some downtime.

  • Forum: The forum can be expected to go offline on June 28th at 17:30 GMT, for about two hours. Some features will be temporarily disabled (commit and pull request sidebar widgets), and will be enabled again within 24 or 36 hours.
  • Wiki: The wiki can be expected to go offline on June 28th at 17:30 GMT, for about two hours.
  • Bugtracker, git repository: Bugtracker and git repository (hosted by GitHub) won't experience any downtime.
  • Stat-server: The stat-server won't experience any downtime.
  • Hercules IRC bot (commit announcements in the #hercules channel): The IRC bot will go offline on June 28th at 17:30 GMT, for about two hours. The commit announcement hook may experience a longer downtime (up to four more hours).
  • HerculesWSAPI: The HerculesWSAPI service (HPM Hooks and SQL Item DB automatic re-generation) will be disabled on June 28th at 17:30 GMT, for up to eight hours.
Through the week, there may be further, brief, downtimes (10-15 minutes each), for planned upgrades and improvements of the platform and individual services.

Given the complexity of the system, and the number of moving parts, there may be unforeseen delays on the scheduled times. We'll do our best to minimize those.

Status updates will be posted here as well as on IRC and on Twitter.
