Today, Friday evening, maintenance will take place starting at 9pm CEST (what time is that for me?). mite won’t be available for 30 to 45 minutes.
This maintenance is the consequence of this morning’s interruption. Our database server went down. To get mite back up asap during working day hours, we switched to our failover database server. This evening, our database will move to its former home, the more powerful main database server. The maintenance downtime is inevitable to avoid data corruption with 100% safety.
Again, and hopefully for the last time for a long long future: We ask for your understanding.
Update: Maintenance went as planned. mite was unavailable for 21 minutes.
