Scheduled Downtime: (Again) 9:30AM PST, 2011-03-10

Original post, 2011-03-07: The time has come for Open Library to migrate fully to the Internet Archive’s new virtual machine architecture. We expect the site to be down for about 2 hours as we move data and update various config files. Please bear with us… there are lots of balls in the air that we need to catch!

Also, we’ll post updates here if the plan changes.

Update, 11:30pm PST, 2011-03-07: Ok! The site’s back online, on brand new hardware. Everything looks about right, and we’re warming various caches and testing performance on various elements. Fingers crossed everything will warm up nicely over the next few hours. Yay!

Update, 9:30am PST, 2011-03-08: Just a little note to let you know that we’re still working on the migration. Our coverstore is struggling, and we’re tweaking our Gunicorn & lighttpd config in the new system. Apologies for the service interruption – you might see covers loading slowly, amongst other things we’re still discovering. More updates as they come to hand…

Update, 8:45am PST, 2011-03-10: Apologies for the short notice, but we’ll be bringing the site offline around 9:30am PST this morning, since we need to downgrade our lighttpd install from 1.4.26 to 1.4.19. The theory is that the newer version is still a bit unstable, and that’s part of the reason the site has been a little “bouncy” since Monday.
