Evening!

The hardware running our server has been fairly untouched for quite some time. So we have decided to find replacement hardware to fully allow us to keep the community and server ready for future updates. However, this requires the server to be unavailable for some time while we move everything from databases to server files.

Live update:
Server has stopped: 1:05: PM GMT+2 (13:05 CEST)
Server has started: 4:04 PM GMT+2 (16:04 CEST)


Date of migration:
Saturday, 21st of September, 11 AM GMT+2 (11:00 CEST).
Expect a total downtime up to 6 hours.

New hardware:
  • 2x Intel Xeon E5-2420 v2 Six-Core CPU (12 physical cores in total)
  • 48 GB ECC RAM
  • 2x 480GB SSD dedicated for Minecraft

For those of you unable to translate that timeframe, it'll still be on the Saturday, September 21st, but it'll be 05:00 AM for the expected start time, and it's expected to stretch until 11:00 AM. Check by around noon?
