As most people know, we are currently in the process
of a full network upgrade/transfer. As we get closer to the completion, we have a few upcoming outages. Starting Wednesday, June 30th, 2010 at 11:55 PM PST
, we will undergo the following outages:
1) DNS Update
At this time we will update our DNS and it will start to propagate across the globe. Depending on the ISP, this can take anywhere from 60 seconds to 24 hours. During this time, users with old DNS will not be able to access your forum and will be presented with an error message explaining they need to wait for their DNS to update.
2) Shared Sync
We will be taking down the shared server to do one final sync. While we do this, forums will experience 5-30minutes downtime.
3) Attachment Sync
Attachments will also be transferred one final time. As a result, forums will be unable to upload attachments, change logo, upload smileys, change favicon, or any other tasks involving uploading files to the FF network.
We have worked tirelessly to keep downtime to a minimum. Once completed, we look forward to lightning fast forums with an expected 100% uptime! If you have any questions or problems please post on the support forum. Thank you for using FreeForums.org
