[done] Server move: forum downtime, metaserver disruption

Postby JTN » Wed May 01, 2013 12:12 am

Some time in the next few days we'll be moving most of freeciv.org hosting to a new server. We'll have to take this forum offline (hopefully briefly), and there will also be disruption to the metaserver for at least an hour or so. I don't have an exact date yet.

(Some freeciv.org content such as static web servers has already moved. It's possible there may be disruption to freeciv.org DNS as we shuffle things around.)

Forum and metaserver are now moved to the new hosting, and DNS updates should have propagated around the Internet by now.

People operating public servers that were running during the switchover will probably need to do this to get their servers to notice the new IP:

Code: Select all

metaconnection down
metaconnection up


Please do report any lingering problems.
