Downtime for forum upgrade

8 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted

I'll be taking the forum down for a couple of hours to upgrade to IPB 2.2

http://forums.invisionpower.com/index.php?showtopic=226814

I'm not sure when exactly (time restrictions here) but it should be sometime in the next 24/48 hours. To ensure a clean upgrade i'll be removing custom skins and language packs prior to the upgrade (they generally aren't compatible between versions anyway). New language packs will be added in as and when I find 2.2 compatible versions ;)

Currently in the middle of an offline backup (just in case). The forum will be going down soon...

Forum upgraded. Got a bit of a scare when an SQL query ran for 20 mins during the upgrade but it finished in the end ;)

If you are having issues with drop-down menus not working then please clear your browser's cache/temporary internet files and then restart your browser.

Site has been screwed all day. This ISP post from a while ago:

Our networking engineer made a change to our core2 router configuration. It caused the router to run out of ram and wipe out its configuration file. We have restored the configuration from backup and are going over it now to ensure everything is correct. You still may be experiencing site outages as we correct the problem. Please check back for updates which we will be making untill the problem is 100% fixed..

Site is still slow. I've got a couple of support calls logged.
