Scheduled Server Downtime – June Fri 18th…
Regular users of NxFifteen will be aware I tend to give little or no warning about service downtime. In most cases this is because the setup I use is working the way it should and needs no messing with, but things go wrong and I scrabble to get everything back up and running. This time is different.
On Friday the 18th of July i am predicting an extended service outage. At the moment I can’t predict how long this will last, all I can do is assure you I will be working over the weekend to restore service and reduce the unavailability as much as I can.
Why is this happening
My upstream host, Bytemark, will be physically moving my server from Leeds to York. This is to allow them to continue providing the best service available.
That said, it was still my choice to allow them to do this and i set the date of my move.
What will be affected
Everything. The physical machine is being moved so it will be turned off and any service running on it will be unavailable.
This includes: emails, websites, jabber chat, nx15.at shortened links and the OpenPGP Key server.
How long will this last
I don’t know. Expect everything to be back online by the end of the weekend, but at this time i can offer no guarantee.
My priorities are email then websites and after that everything else.
