The server will be rebooted March 13, 2019 at 2AM EST. This is the same weekday and time as the upgrade last week.

This should be a quick reboot with minimal downtime to apply recent software updates.

However, while the server is offline, it may perform a file system check which can take between 15 minutes and "several hours" depending on the size of the server. Since this is the first time we have rebooted the server since 2014, I don't know how long this will take. Please be aware and be patient. Our expectation is around the one hour mark if there is any downtime.

This reboot is a followup from the upgrade this week and will help increase security and performance. We will be scheduling maintenance and reboots more frequently (anything is more frequently than never) in order to keep the server and the forums running.
