We’re getting ready to release a new version of Lemmy, which will require a database upgrade, so we’ll have a few hours of downtime.
Feel free to announce new communities here.
Other than that, this is reserved for admin use only.
@dessalines It turned out to be quite a significant downtime. Is it going to be similar for other instances when they upgrade to the same version?
Most likely not… this one took a long time because lemmy has hundreds of thousands of historical comments it had to transfer to a new form.
@dessalines Won’t that also be true of anyone who has been federating with you for a significant period of time?
Yes it will.
This should be happening today, so don’t be alarmed when you see the maintenance page and lemmy is down for a few hours.
