In about 30 minutes (10:30 Amsterdam Local Time) we will restart one of the servers. Affected services:
Downtime shouldnt be longer then 15-20 minutes.
Nextcloud upgrade, scheduled 7 months ago
Tonight (Amsterdam Local Time CET) at about midnight, we will commence nextcloud upgrade procedure. This means https://cloud.disroot.org will be down for about an hour. During that time, we will create a backup (just in case things go wrong) and upgrade nextcloud. Of course we will try to be as fast as possible and we hope things will go rather smooth. Nonetheless prepare for short downtime.
Everything back up and running
Looks like we have managed to get the gitchy services back online and fully working. \o/
CloudNextcloud upgrade postponed
Due to issues with JABBER/XMPP and Matrix we focused on today, and which are not fully resolved yet, we are postponing the nextcloud upgrade operation.

XMPPXMPPJabber server to server connectivity issues
Seems like we have some connectivity issues with other servers. We still dont know what causes it (maybe the network glitch form the morning), but we are looking into it. So if you experience connection issues with your buddies or rooms on other servers, this is the reason.
Outage caused by Emergency maintenance work at the DataCenter
Today due to emergency work in the data-center where our servers are hosted, some of our servers were unreachable. This was caused by faulty data-center network equipment. After few hours of what we believe a "Sunday's engineer nightmare", the issues seem to be solved and everything is back online \o/
We hope engineers at the data-center will have a relaxed Sunday form now on. They for sure deserved it.
