Scheduled downtime

Just a quick heads up there will be some brief downtime at some point this weekend while I migrate fluxbb.org to a new VPS. During this time I will place the forums in to maintenance mode.

Our new VPS is still hosted by Gandi, though will now run Arch Linux opposed to Ubuntu.

Re: Scheduled downtime

Quit Ubuntu server is rather a right decision.

But (I'm asking out of curiosity), why you choose Archlinux for server? Personally, I love Archlinux and I use it in all of my workstations. But Archlinux upgrade is a pain... something not compatible with server need for stability. Why not Debian? (for example).

Re: Scheduled downtime

Jamie originally planned Archlinux because it has rolling release where as Ubuntu needs to be manually updated.

Re: Scheduled downtime

Yes, it is a rolling release, it has the latest kernel, bleeding edge software, but many applications may break after an upgrade ...

I suppose you would have read these topics:

https[://]bbs [dot] archlinux [dot] org [/] viewtopic.php?id=108319

Good luck!

Re: Scheduled downtime

While I wouldn't use arch in a production environment that requires 100% uptime, that isn't vital for fluxbb.org, and I would much rather (and find it easier to find time to) deal with odd small issues during a rolling upgrade than big issues when upgrading major releases.

Re: Scheduled downtime

Shouldn't be unless they were done after I put the old one in to maintenance mode, in which case tough you'll have to do them again tongue needed to stop and move the database at some point in time...
