Title: Scheduled maintenance, 2019-09-07
Post by: xasop on August 31, 2019, 11:19:35 PM
The homepage, forum and wiki will be going offline for up to an hour on 2019-09-07, between 09:00 and 10:00 UTC.

In your local time (if you are logged in and have your time offset correctly configured), this is:
September 07, 2019, 09:00:00 AM


The server which hosts the homepage, forum and wiki is to be migrated to a new hosting provider at this time. No user-facing changes are expected.

At the same time, we will install security updates on the server which hosts the homepage, forum and wiki. These will be non-disruptive to functionality, as the server is running a stable OS release that gets critical fixes only.

Maintenance complete. I still have some cleanup steps to take but everything should be operational now. Let me know if anything seems wonky.

I've already noticed one broken thing: Outbound e-mail is blocked by the new hosting provider. I've raised a ticket for this, but in the meantime you won't be able to receive e-mails from the forum.

For now, I've worked around this by proxying mail via the old server, so it should now work again. I don't expect a reply from the new hosting provider on this issue until Monday.

In the 7 years I have been on this site, I have never received a single e-mail from the forum.

That is because you have disabled e-mail notifications in your settings.

Yes. I did that deliberately.

Do you have an actual point and/or problem, or are you just shitposting in Announcements for the hell of it?
