Downtime Monday (Done)

Hey all, we're planning on having a downtime on Monday, January 19, 2009. Planning on starting around 10 AM CST and it shouldn't last more than a few hours.

This will affect the repositories and the website, but not forums.

We're planning on migrating from MySQL to PostgreSQL, since we've had just far too many issues with InnoDB locking up the database making the entire site inaccessible for minutes at a time, and we can't afford to lose transactions and ACID compliance by switching to MyISAM. Here's hoping it fixes the problem.

Addendum: And we're all done. Very anti-climactic, if you ask me.

    Excellent choice on postgre and isam. Mysql is just not made to handle your type of load.

    Good luck hope it an uneventful upgrade
