Site maintenance required

Post by JonAbbott »

This site requires urgent maintenance and is very likely to go down on its own. I'm manually bringing it back up when I notice for the time being, but it may go down for good any day.

At some point I'll rebuild the server from scratch to resolve the issues, just not sure when that will be. I'll post an update once the work is complete.

The package distribution point will also go down when the server is rebuilt, so apologies for any inconvenience that may cause.

I've finally got around to upgrading the hardware and reinstalling the OS / PHPBB to the latest versions.

Please be aware that this site and the PackMan distribution points will go offline on 5th Oct 2021 for maintenance. It should be back online later the same day or the next.

It's that time of the year where urgent maintenance is required. The server will be going up and down whilst I sort the underlying issue out.

Sorry for any inconvenience caused. I'll post an update once the issue is resolved.

I've fixed the initial issue so the site should now be stable.

The server will go down for a few minutes at some point, whilst its moved back to the UPS power feed.
