Default Notice of upcoming downtime Wednesday 30th March - NOT HAPPENING, DONE ALREADY!
Hi All,

MTS will be offline on Wednesday 30th March, to move to a new server. The downloads being unavailable a week ago where a result of a failing disk, and as such, I need to move to new hardware. All of the essential configuration has been done on the new server already, as well as a backup taken last week, however, I will need to bring the site offline to copy any remaining files, images, and a database dump, as well as change IP addresses and configure everything to point to the new server.

I do not have an estimated downtime on this since it depends on network speeds, amount of files etc. The site will be replaced with a maintenance message while this work is being carried out.


Turns out the file storage disk died today (again) anyway, so I went ahead and moved the schedule forward (which you probably all saw anyway :P)

Everything is on the new server now. I think I have everything configured correctly but please let me know if there are any issues in #site-feedback on Discord ( https://discord.com/invite/a3JmnTeN )

Regards,
T.

Oooh, shiny new server! I hope it all goes well, I suppose I'll have to actually do some work on Wednesday then, instead of downloading stuff for my sims!

I will choose a path that's clear- I will choose free will

I was wondering why I could not download a lot. Should have read the news first.

Just as I thought. Was wondering why I can't download stuff and gets Error code 500 eventhough I already tried a hard refresh and cleared cache.

@Tashiketh -Thanks for fixing the site and I've tested to see if the files are downloading and have gotten a few things.A ew of my downloads are for making new towns or for adding neighborhoods to my towns as they grow and become crowded.
