Forum downtime today! [update: done!]

posted by David E Telltale Alumni on - last edited - Viewed by 744 users
Hello!

We'll be performing some forum maintenance at around ~2:30pm Pacific today (roughly 4 hours from the time of posting). That means that we'll be taking the forums down temporarily while some stuff gets moved around and shaken, then put back. We expect that it won't take more than an hour and a half to complete, and then we'll turn 'em back on.

See you on the other side!

    A bit of magic here, a bit of spice there, and a non-modding of TomPravetz everywhere.

    Eh, sorry Tom, that's how it rolls.

    Watch out for the spice though.

    I have received a "Database Error" page....

    Hey jmm, what were you doing (or attempting to do) when you got the error?

    I had one of those earlier, aroung 1.15ish (PST) i think. I just refreshed the page (i had gotten sidetracked for forty minutes by youtube) and that message came up. I then tried to access the forums through the main page, but upon clicking "Forums" I got the "launch of the screaming website" message.

    As one of the first steps of what will be an ongoing effort to beef up our site's performance, we've moved the forum data over to a new server. We'll ultimately be moving the whole site+data to new machines in the not-too-distant future. Woo!

    That error took place before the move was underway, but could have been the result of some preliminary tweaks by the dev team. If you see any more weirdness, please report it here!

    Hmmm, opening a thread with lots of images. Probably just a fluke since a few seconds and a refresh later worked.
  • Just tried to open the main page, and just got a grey screen, with a small square with a ripped paper icon in it. The page title (on my tab) Read "oh crumbs"

    I then tried to log onto the forums directly, and it said there was a database error. Once i refreshed it a couple of times it loaded though.
