TLO will be undergoing major maintenance on the week commencing 20th September 2020, maintenance is planned to be ongoing for 72 hours with service distruptions to all TLO servers.

TLO's primary server hosting the website, mail, and Minecraft will be the first server to undergo maintenance on the 21st, downtime for the website is expected to be 2-3 hours with impaired service for upwards of 24 hours.

The secondary server hosting RPG-X & Holomatch will be undergoing maintenance on the second day, 22nd, so long as all goes to plan with the primary server.  Downtime is expected of 1-2 hours with impaired service for upwards of 24 hours.

22nd will be for bug fixes and testing on both servers, minor service distruptions may occur on this day.

Server 1 will be undergoing an OS upgrade as our current OS goes end of life in April 2021 and the TLO website will be upgraded to the new theme with the forums also receiving an update to the new version of SMF.

Server 2 will be undergoing only an OS upgrade for the same reason as server 1.

The plan is to upgrade OS not fully redeploy the servers, however, nothing ever goes to plan (:P) so extra time has been scheduled for a full redploy when it all goes wrong (plan for the worst and all that :P )

During maintenance I will keep everyone updated on the Discord server (link to the server is above in the main menu) in the #maintenance2020 channel that will be created on the 20th.

Any questions before hand can be dropped below.

Day 1 completed.

All services for server 1 should be back up and running now.

Any remaining issues please report them below.  If you are experiencing any issues with the new theme, please hit CTRL + F5 or clear your browser cache before reporting as this may fix it for you.

Day 2 *should* be more straightforward.

Thanks for bearing with us during this.
