Here are the newest status updates from my Mastodon account @firstname.lastname@example.org for latest server information.
I recommend to follow it anyway to get updates even if the server is down.
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.
On sunday, 7. Feb 2021, there will be a reboot of the XMPP server due to a kernel update. All connections will be interrupted and have to be reestablished after reboot.
The update to debian 10.7 went fine and all services are up and running again.
