Mozilla Scheduled Downtime – 12/17/2009, 6pm – 12am PST (0200 – 0800 12/18/2009 UTC)

We will have a scheduled maintenance window tonight from 6:00pm to 12:00am PST. The following changes will take place:

  • 7:00pm PST (0300 UTC) Geo-location support for bouncer/ We’ll be turning on geo-location support to tonight. This should improve the download experience by directing users to mirrors that are geographically close to their origin IP. See bug 459919 for more details. No downtime expected.
  • 7:00pm PST (0300 UTC) PHP 5.2 upgrades. We’ll be rolling out PHP 5.2 upgrades on the production web servers (bug 533486). We don’t expect any user-facing downtime. Duration 3 hours.

Please let me know if you have any reason why we should not proceed with this planned maintenance. As always, we aim to keep downtime to as little as possible, but unexpected complications can arise causing longer downtime periods than expected. All systems should be operational by the end of the maintenance window.

Feel free to comment directly if you see issues past the planned downtime.
