Recent Soakers forum unavailability

Post by soaksdata » Sun Dec 02, 2018 1:00 pm

In latter Nov. there were several times the soakers forum was unavailable.
I had assumed it was for standard site maintenance, but thought I'd post about it to make sure.
Was it maintenance?

Hi Eric , Administrator Dan was upgrading the forum software and restoring the backup, so yes it was legitimately down for a very short time.

Hi soaksdata, SF was down a few times in Nov, the first was to replace some hardware at the server center; another time may have been related to the first (still unclear); and the most recent was me updating the forum software and having it hang, thus taking down the site for a few hours until I restored a backup.

In the future I will try to remember to post about possible downtime ahead of the event. Thanks for noticing and feel free to let me know of any other issues or downtime!
