Textpattern web servers - January 2021 overhaul

Thanks to support from our web hosts DigitalOcean, we’ve renewed our server hosting piggy bank. Accordingly, some server overhauling and maintenance is now due.

This thread will contain all the salient information I can think of. Things will start happening from today, and any expected disruption / downtime will be advertised as soon as I know it’s happening.

Please use this thread for questions, I’ll do my best to answer.

Status updates

Our forum is headed to a new server commencing 1 Jan 2021 soon. The expected date will be advised in due course, with advance notice of the maintenance window where the forum will be unavailable.

Should you need to add IP addresses to a firewall or filter, here they are:

  • 46.101.24.153
  • 2a03:b0c0:1:d0::510:8001

It is normal for a server to be ‘warmed up’ with sending emails to ensure deliverability, I’m doing as much as I feasibly can before the switch on 1 Jan 2021, some forum emails may be caught as spam in the coming days. Please let me know if this happens.

The main textpattern.com website, along with the default theme and design patterns showcases are headed to a new server soon.

Should you need to add IP addresses to a firewall or filter, here they are:

  • 188.166.20.212
  • 2a03:b0c0:2:d0::e81:7001

Re: Textpattern web servers - January 2021 overhaul

The forum server migration didn’t go entirely to plan, so it’s deferred until other Textpattern network sites have been migrated & rewired. The forum is a tricky beast to manage sometimes, and it’s important we get this right.

I will give notice of expected maintenance in due course. I’m over two hours into a three hour maintenance window and I encountered some snags on the way, so we’re running on the current server for a few more weeks at this rate.

It will happen, I need to investigate some problems and find workarounds. To be continued.

Thank you for your patience.
