Here are the newest status updates from my Mastodon account @email@example.com for latest server information.
I recommend to follow it anyway to get updates even if the server is down.
The upgrade to debian 10.9 and prosody 0.11.9 went without any problems.
If you experience any problems, please report via email.
-- happy chatting!
On sunday, may 16 2021 (CEST) there will be a bigger upgrade of the #xmpp server, so there will be a downtime of up to 3 hours if all goes well.
The #xmpp server update is done. No problems. All systems are up and running again.
- Happy Chatting!
Of course the server maintenance is on 7th MARCH 2021 not 7th feb as stated in the last post!
Thanks to @u_urban for making me aware of this!
XMPP server maintenance on sun, 7th feb 2021 CET
Because there is a rather big update to Debian 10 (Buster) and also for the prosody XMPP server, I need to take the server down for a longer period to do a full backup in order to be able to roll the system back to a running state in case of failure.
This will be done some time on sunday, 7th of february 2021 (CET). So expect XMPP to not being available.
I don't expect the outage to be longer than 3 hours if no problems arise.
The kernel upgrade is done and the system has rebooted.
All services are up and running again.
