NC018 maintenance underway

Server NC018 went down for the RAM upgrade at approximately 16:05 UTC. We will post an update here when it is complete.

Server NC018 maintenance this weekend

6 March 2013 11:28:51 +0000

To address recent performance issues, we will be doubling the RAM on server NC018 during our regular weekly maintenance window this weekend. This will require that we shut down the server, open it up, install the new memory, and then turn the server back on again. During the few minutes this will take, the server will be inaccessible for all functions.

Here are the details:

  • Maintenance window: Saturday 9 March 2013, 16:00-17:30 UTC/GMT (90 minutes)

Please use the World Time Server website  to convert this time into your own time zone.

Please note that although the maintenance window is 90 minutes long, the server will only be down for a few minutes sometime during the window, most likely right at the beginning.

Server NC018 is our primary server, and hosts your email and most websites. While the server will be down for a few minutes, no email will be lost, although it will be delayed a few minutes.

This status website will remain online during the maintenance, and will be accessible at if you are unable to reach it at

If you have any questions or concerns about this maintenance, please contact NinerNet support. Thank-you.

NC018 database issue resolved

2 March 2013 00:06:37 +0000

The overloading of the database that was causing intermittent problems with database-based websites on this server was resolved at approximately 20:16 UTC on 1 March by fine tuning the database configuration and allotting more memory to it. We apologise for any inconvenience, and are working on a longer-term solution.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact support. Thanks very much for your patience.
