Down For Maintenance

The server is down for scheduled maintenance as follows:
  1. Full backup/clone - Done.
  2. Clear out old data - Done.
  3. Reset The Nether - Done.
  4. Mod patching - Done.
  5. Test patches  - Done.
Scheduled Downtime:
Date: 14/08/14
Started: 8:30 am (UK)
Finished:  10:30 am (UK)

*Update - 09:20: There is currently a major network outage in central London which is affecting our hosting company, the backup is over 90% complete but I am unable to finish it or carry out the rest of the maintenance until the network issue is resolved. I will update here when I know more.

*Update - 09:40: Apparently this is the second outage this morning so if you couldn't connect earlier this morning you now know why! I'm not sure if the issue is completely resolved but I have managed to reconnect and am continuing the backup, I will probably have to extend the downtime a little though.

*Update - 09:50: I've added 30 minutes to the finish time, the network outage does seem to be mostly resolved now but the connection is still a little slower than usual.

*Update - 10:30: All done, the server is back up and the whitelist has been removed!
