Maintenance - Down Time

Post by Hughie »

Message from our board's hosting company:
We will be migrating the database software from MariaDB 10.2 to MySQL 5.7, which will provide support for a broader range of common web applications, and provide increased database performance.

To perform this upgrade, our engineering team has created the following maintenance window:

00:00 - 03:00 UTC, Friday 9th December 2022
UTC is the same as UK time except during the UK Summer.
They suggest our board will be down for approximately one hour within this period.

In the wee small hours of Wednesday morning 21st December, (UK time) I will be updating to the latest versions of our bulletin board's files, database and extensions. All going well this should be completed within two hours.
