In preparation for the move of the server there will be a restart to confirm all required services are restarting fine on our server. For this reason the server will be taken offline tomorrow morning, Wednesday the 3rd of November from about 7:15 AM CET. The whole procedure should be over within 15 minutes.

Please keep in mind that during this time neither the website nor the forum will be available to users.

cheers

Klaus

The restart of the Server this morning showed no apparent glitches in the config, I am confident, that the physical move end of this week will go as planned.

cheers
