Extraordinary Maintenance - Northdale, scheduled 2 weeks ago
Unfortunately we will have to perform some unscheduled maintenance tomorrow around 1200-1300 (5 April) server time on Northdale.
A more detailed timeframe will come tomorrow. I expect the downtime to last around an hour approximately.
This means all realms and the login server will be offline tomorrow for approximately an hour
There's some issues with how the database software saves files to disk and it's filling up the drives and we can only fix this by bringing MariaDB offline. This means the server has to go offline too.
Sorry for the short heads up!
Maintenance has started.
Restore of databases has now begun.
The restore is taking longer than expected but should hopefully be done soon.
World Database: Done
Characters Database: Done
Logs: In progress, almost finished.
Maintenance completed, realms back online.
Please let us know if you are experiencing any issues with your characters ingame.
