  3. Scheduled maintenance Friday 9th 6:00 GMT+1

Our hosting provider is going to perform some maintenance on the main Lichess server this Friday, 6:00 CET for about one hour: http://travaux.ovh.net/?do=details&id=30241

We're prepared to work around it, but there might be some downtime if the impact is larger than expected.

What ?

Thanks for letting us know in advance!

Greatly appreciate that!

Here's how it went:

6:00 We move traffic over to a replacement server. Transition is smooth.
6:20 OVH disconnects our main servers public network as planned.
6:24 Unexpectedly the primary database server becomes unreachable. Requests start timing out. We suspect some automated rate-limiting by our provider due to the unusually high network traffic caused by the redirect.
6:44 Maintenance is finished. We move traffic back to the main server. Network to database server recovers.
7:03 Fixed last issue with some stylesheets failing to load.

So not great, but we're back now.

thanks for heads up, is it am?

@slinkert Yes, just about an hour ago.

thank you!
