Geocaching.com Scheduled Downtime - Feb 23, 2010

4 posts in this topic

On Tuesday, February 23rd starting at 8 PM Pacific Time (GMT -8), we'll be performing upgrades to the Geocaching.com database server in preparation for the increase in Geocaching over the spring and summer months.

 

The expected downtime for this work is 4 hours and during that time, all Geocaching.com services including the web site, Pocket Queries, the Geocaching iPhone application, Geocache Navigator, and other 3rd party applications that access our API, will be inaccessible.

 

We'll have a webpage set up on the Geocaching site with this downtime notice and we'll provide status updates if the downtime exceeds the 4 hour maintenance window. We'll also post updates to this forum thread as well.

 

Thanks,

Its now 10:00 PM Pacific Time (GMT -8) and we're still completing the backups of the data. We're estimating that we're about a hour behind schedule so the site probably won't be back up until a little after 1 AM.

 

If anything changes to this estimate, I'll post another update here.

Its a little after 1:00 AM and the upgrades went well. We're waiting for the restore to complete, but should have the site up in about an hour.
