We’re in a need to add additional resources to the server cluster, which means we have to take parts of the site down today (28th september) at 13:00 UTC. While the upgrade is a relatively uneventful thing, we may need to take down services for up to an hour to avoid things getting out of sync.
This post will be updated throughout the maintenance window with information.
13:00 UTC: Starting maintenance window
13:15 UTC: Database hardware upgraded successfully
13:17 UTC: Webservers going down for upgrades
13:30 UTC: Halfway through filesystem verifications
13:36 UTC: We’re back again! More hardware makes us happy gits.
