The server update is done. No problems. All systems are up and running again.

- Happy Chatting!

UPDATE:
Of course the server maintenance is on 7th MARCH 2021 not 7th feb as stated in the last post!

Thanks to @u_urban for making me aware of this!

XMPP server maintenance on sun, 7th feb 2021 CET

Because there is a rather big update to Debian 10 (Buster) and also for the prosody XMPP server, I need to take the server down for a longer period to do a full backup in order to be able to roll the system back to a running state in case of failure.

This will be done some time on sunday, 7th of february 2021 (CET). So expect XMPP to not being available.

I don't expect the outage to be longer than 3 hours if no problems arise.

The kernel upgrade is done and the system has rebooted.

All services are up and running again.

Happy chatting!

On sunday, 7. Feb 2021, there will be a reboot of the XMPP server due to a kernel update. All connections will be interrupted and have to be reestablished after reboot.

The update to debian 10.7 went fine and all services are up and running again.

Happy chatting!

Some time during the next weekend (19. - 20. Dec 2020) I'll update the server to Debian 10.7 (buster). The server has to be stopped and restarted in order to do so.

Because I do a full system backup before the update to eventually roll it back fast in case of problems, the downtime may be a little longer. Please expect a downtime from 2 to 3 hours.

But as always I'll try to keep the downtime as short as possible.

The kernel update is through. All services are up again.

Happy Chatting!

Due to a kernel update there will be a downtime of the XMPP server some time during
the coming weekend.

I'll try to keep the downtime as short as possible.

The upgrade to debian 10.6 is done.

There was an update to prosody 0.11.7 too which went fine. I also updated all used prosody modules.

Everything should work as expected now.

Some time on the weekend from friday, 2nd October 2020 to sunday, 4th October 2020 I'll upgrade the XMPP server from debian 10.5 to debian 10.6.
The server has to be restarted, so all connections will be cut off and have to be reestablished when the server comes up again.

I'll keep the downtime as short as possible and hopefully there won't be any unexpected problems.

The update to prosody 0.11.6 is done.

Everything should work as expected now.

Some time during the weekend from friday, 11th September 2020 to sunday, 13th September 2020 there will be a bigger maintenance because of the upgrade of the XMPP server from prosody 0.11.5 to prosody 0.11.6.

Because I don't want to stay up all night, the maintenance will be between 10:00 and 22:00 CEST on one of these days.

Hopefully there won't be any unexpected problems. In this case the downtime won't exceed 3 hours (hopefully).

Maintenance for XMPP on tuesday, 1st september 2020 22:00 CEST.

If no unexpected problems arise, the downtime won't exceed 2 to 3 hours.

Because of the update to debian 10.5 (buster) the XMPP- and web-server must be taken down and be restarted. Also I have to change some other things, so the downtime will last a little longer, but shouldn't exceed 3 hours.

I will take the server offline in the night from sunday, 9th of august 2020 to monday, 10th august 2020 during the maintenance.

Aufgrund von unerwarteten Wartungsarbeiten muss der XMPP Server und der STUN/TURN Server neugestartet werden. Dabei werden alle bestehenden Verbindungen unterbrochen.

Die Arbeiten werden heute in der Nacht vom 9. Juni zum 10. Juni 2020 stattfinden.

Es sollte nicht zu einer längeren Downtime kommen.

Wegen des Upgrades von Debian Buster 10.3 auf 10.4 ist ein Neustart des Systems nötig. Dies gilt für den XMPP Server wie für den STUN/TURN Server.

Das Update wird in der Nacht von Mittwoch, den 13. Mai 2020 auf Donnerstag, den 14. Mai 2020 eingespielt.

Sollte es keine Probleme beim Update/Neustart geben, sollte die Downtime maximal eine Stunde dauern.

Der XMPP Server unterstützt nun auch Audio/Video Calls per XEP-0215 und wurde um einen STUN/TURN Server erweitert.

Viel Spass beim Chatten und bleibt gesund!

Viel Spass beim Chatten und bleibt gesund!

Ein Update auf prosody 0.11.5 macht einen Restart des Services nötig. Gleichzeitig werde ich alle prosody Module updaten.

Das Update werde ich am Sonntag abend, den 05. April 2020 einspielen.

Viel Spass beim Chatten und bleibt gesund!
