Scheduled Server Upgrade

Scheduled Server Upgrade

Please be aware that the Hamfiles site will be down at sometime during the day of Friday 21st of July 2017.

Hamfiles has grown much larger than ever anticipated. To protect against hardware failures and other potentially catastrophic situations multiple SSD drives are installed to retain staggered backups.

Sometime during Friday 21st I will be visiting the co-location site to install 2 more server-class 512GB SSD drives at which time the site and all of it's services (mail, DNS etc.) will be down for a short period.

The actual down time should be short but the server will be more heavily loaded than usual for a few hours whilst I format the drives and make/transfer multiple backups.

Please accept my apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.


Update: Drives are now installed. The server will now run slightly slower for the rest of the day whilst I perform backups and transfer some data.

Update: All work completed successfully, this project has now been completed.
