A couple of days ago our host gave notice that our current servers will be taken offline within the month due to them phasing out support for the OpenVZ virtualisation.
As a result TLO will be undergoing server migrations and maintenance over the next few weeks, most of the moves should go unnoticed as old servers hand over to new, though you may notice brief periods of server downtime due to the way DNS propagates.
The TLO website will be moving to a new server also, and I will announce within the next 48 hours the plans for the site migration as this will cause downtime as old databases are made read only to prevent any data loss during the move.
Below is a list of servers that will be moving and their current status:
- Minecraft | Awaiting Migration
- Mail Server | Migrated
- TLO Discord Link/Bot | Migrated/Requires Code Update
- Website | Migrated
RPG-X - Spicy | Migrated Holomatch | Migrated
Any servers currently migrating may experience performance loss, downtime, and brief periods of limited availability due to DNS, servers awaiting migration are running on the old servers, and servers migrated should be functioning normally at their new home.
I am taking this opportunity to also update server OS' and software to the latest long term support options to prevent us having any planned extended maintenance again in the near future.
I will keep this thread updated with any relevant information regarding the migrations.
