Midnight outage

As some of you might have noticed some of the services have been offline for about three hours. This was due to emergency maintenance work at the datacenter where work has been done to power system thus it was required to put affected servers off. However, once the power was back on, one of our servers did not come back online. Reason? Very simple. Our BIOS battery went flat causing the system to stop during post on silly “no keyboard” error and wrong date :(

After very refreshing 70km trip to the datacenter in the middle of the night, server got battery replacement and nicely came back online.

Due to the issue in end to end encryption app, causing latest nextcloud client to break (version 2.5) we have to disable it until the issue is resolved. (issue in question) https://github.com/nextcloud/server/issues/12365 We will look into it deeper starting from tomorrow and try to provide more information to nextcloud devs to help them solve the issue.

CPU upgrade, scheduled 1 week ago

Tomorrow evening (Sunday) we are planning to replace Processors (CPUs) in our main server with a bit more powerful ones \o/

This means we need to put the entire server down. Since we are also going to move the old processor to database server, it means things will be offline for the duration of the operation.

We will do our best to be as efficient as possible but the downtime is inevitable.

Service updates - routine maintenance, scheduled 1 week ago

Tonight (Amsterdam Local time), starting from 22:30 we will be doing routine monthly maintenance (operating system updates etc). Additionally we will be updating services like Nextcloud, Diaspora, Lufi, Framadate, Etherpad and Ethercalc, and Taiga. So expect short downtimes during which we will be working on upgrades.

Note! Nextcloud update, since we want to make a proper backup (just in case) might take about an hour.
