AS OF 14/03/2018 THIS POST IS NOW OUTDATED, SEE THE LATEST POST AT https://rcdradio.com/servermaintenance/
Every 2nd Wednesday of every month, RCD Radio’s Live 24/7 Stream will go offline for scheduled maintenance.
We like to keep our servers up to date with the latest Windows Updates, as Microsoft releases updates for their operating system on every 2nd Tuesday of every month, we are doing our updates 24 hours later, why the delay? because we want to make sure Microsoft got it right, also giving them plenty of chance to release their updates.
We may also do some other maintenance on our server, such as a cleaning or hard drive checks, or even, hardware updates, so it all depends, but the minimum our servers will be down, is between 30 – 60 minutes, depending on how long it takes Windows Updates to install, typically, thats all we will do, if we need to do any other maintenance, we will mention on our social media pages that it may take longer than normal.
How will we know?
We will always tweet and post on Facebook, when we are about to shut off the servers for maintenance, we will also link to this blog post, explaining what it is and what we do.
What is effected?
Everything to do with our Live streams, including our main Live page stream and all our mobile streams, also effected, our IRC Channel Bots, such as RoBo and Jarvis, our website and other services will continue to operate as normal.
We would like to avoid these important maintenance checks on our servers, but these checks keep our servers in working perfect order for what they are used for and therefore must be done.
Follow us on Twitter and Facebook to keep up to date on our downtime and for other things regarding RCD Radio.
