Hi All
There is likely to be some unexpected brief (hopefully) outages in the coming days, currently working with the developer to diagnose a failed upgrade.

Reasons remain unknown and obviously need to get to the bottom of it before moving ahead with a further upgrade in the near future.

Cheers
Darren

Was working with the XF support staff at the time, unknown to me I killed the database server and didn't realise for about 1.5 hours.

I thought the sys admin was doing some work with PHP initially so didn't worry about it until he said it wasn't him which I thought was the case as we had mentioned to complete that body of work over a weekend as further testing will be required.

In short, the site is too large to be doing it through the GUI, it appears to do what it needs to but in the process spools up 300+ Apache services literally rendering the server useless - likely corrupted a tablet or something when initially upgrading which mind you worked fine on a virtual machine which has nowhere near the power this server does.

Command line was ripping through but gets to the end and says upgrade failed but no reason so the fun shall continue I gather.

^^^ I don't understand any of the above techo talk, but I read that as an indication as to how popular and well used the site is.

Woulden't the site be on more than one server? Or is it just hosted on a single server?
I thought data centres all run blade servers these days.
