Brief forum outage expected Tuesday 21/05/2019 - Completed

Post by xantia_v6 » 19 May 2019, 15:41

Our hosting provider is installing some security updates, and will be taking our server off-line for a short period some time on Tuesday.

They are not giving a scheduled time, so it will happen when it happens...

This site should restart itself cleanly after the reboot.

There was a background service which failed to restart after the server maintenance. I have just done another reboot, and it seems OK now.

Haven't noticed a thing!
