Server maintenance coming up

We’re going to be doing some maintenance in the next couple of days so the forum will probably be going offline for a little while. We’ll try to keep it brief.

Could you do one more backup than strictly necessary, pretty please ? :slight_smile:

FYI- ironically, an attempt to take a snapshot prior to the upgrade led to 8 hours of downtime. ( I blame @Julien) Never use Digital Ocean. Never.

Last time y’all fooled around with this server thing, we lost a bunch of content. :pray:

That is when you grab the power cord and back up from the receptacle.

I had a site i spun up during a malware crisis at my previous employer and can concur… never use Digital Ocean!

I think that’s a hashtag nowadays: #IBlameJulien

We made it, we’re now on a new server and away from Digital Ocean! Not even @julien can stop us now.
