Gratz!

About backups and configs, when I was somewhat in charge, I had the habit to organize exercises of restoration from the backups.
It proved fairly useful, when some backups revealed unuable.

I'd consider it very reasonable if Illyriad went into exercise evry 6/12th month...

Enjoy Illy,

All went smoothly, although the server did report a degradation on one of the SSDs.  For anyone technically minded, they're in a RAID array.  A new drive has been ordered and should hopefully be switched in without any further downtime, but we will keep you posted.

Thanks, again, for your patience.

Hi everyone,

We need to perform some necessary server maintenance and patching.

Illyriad will be OFFLINE, starting:

WEDS 26JUL23 at 0200 UTC+0 (Server time)

For reference, this is:

WEDS 26JUL23 at 0300 BST (Current UK)
WEDS 26JUL23 at 0400 DST (Current Mainland Europe)
TUES 25JUL23 at 2200 EDT (Current US East Coast)
TUES 25JUL23 at 1900 PDT (Current US West Coast)

We expect downtime to last at least 2 hours, but it may be longer - depending on how well the server digests the patches.

The forums will remain up during this maintenance period, and we will let you know how we're getting along in the forum, if the time needs to be extended.

Thanks for your patience and understanding.

Regards,

SC
