We'll be upgrading our internet connection on Wednesday, July 31st, so paizo.com will be unavailable for part of the day. We plan on starting around 1:30 pm Pacific time. If all goes well, we should be up fairly soon, however, it may take awhile for various portions of the internet to update their information.

If you cannot reach paizo.com, you may find up-to-date information at http://status.paizo.com.

And by fairly soon you mean several hours longer then expected. At least that is what always happens to me when I try to upgrade something like this. :)

I'm sorry, I'm going to have to ask you to do this on 8/1 instead. On 7/31 I'm going to be climbing the walls stressing about my 12 hour drive the next day and compulsively hitting refresh. On 8/1 I'm going to be driving for 12 hours and unable to check in anyway.

So, you know. Sorry for the inconvenience. You understand.

Why in the world would you plan to do that on the same day you have new PDFs available for purchase? Guess I better get my stuff ordered before lunch.

Unfortunately, the 31st was the least worst time.

Yeah, sorry—I've been trying to schedule this since March, and at the time I originally scheduled it, the July release date had been set for *last* Wednesday. But events conspired to push the release date out a week.

The good news is that, so long as you begin your download before the outage, your download should continue uninterrupted during the outage. And because those products go up at midnight our time, you have roughly 13.5 hours to purchase and begin downloading before the downtime begins.

We're done with the downtime and all traffic should now be going through our new, faster internet connection. It may take some time before everyone is pointed at the new IP addresses but things look good for now.


I am up and going from St Louis. Thanks guys for doing this! I hope it works out.

Site seems more responsive so far, but lunch-time (ET) tomorrow will be the real test.

Congrats on the fast switch-over! :)

It kind of went startlingly well. I had to make dozens and dozens of changes by hand in a really huge and arcane configuration file, and I only had one small thing wrong on my first try. I keep feeling like I *must* have made another mistake that I just haven't found yet...

Desna is smiling upon you today.

Kudos, Vic. Boards feel quite snappy again.

I'm glad it went well, but I'm assuming this was either a Linux server or a network device,in which case why didn't you copy said file, do the updates at your leisure, and then copy (or symlink) when needed? :confused:

I more or less did that. The downtime wasn't folks waiting on me to modify a file—I was just surprised that I got it almost exactly right the first time.

Ah, I misunderstood.

Yeah, there's usually something someplace that gets you...
