Scheduled Maintenance - Forum Upgrade

Recommended Posts

On Wednesday 9th August at 6pm GMT, the forums will go offline for a period of approximately 5 hours.

This downtime will give us the opportunity to upgrade the forum software and then to tweak new settings for our use. Github and discord will be unaffected by this outage and links will be placed into the maintenance message. I will be providing periodical status updates via our discord server.

not with IPB. Ipb it's like Russian roulette with 50/50% chances when doing anything related to upgrades, updates, changes. Too much bugged. Best thing what can do guys -> make the whole backup before any work. And yes, upgrading from 4.1 to 4.2.2 will provoke a lot of pain (tested a few days ago), so better try to do any upgrade on any cloud instance, then if everything will be ok, try to upgrade on a production server. And backups 100% must-have

@Anacondaqq IPB Updates take aprox 2~5 minutes depending on the size of your forums and work like a charm if your webhost is properly configured ;) (without any super-fancy customizations)

I'm sure Anacondaqq knows how to configure his webhost correctly.
