Scheduled downtime 30 Oct 2011 22:00 EDT
I'm scheduling some downtime for this evening to fix up our database server situation.
2011-10-30 22:28 EDT: took identi.ca down. I need to set up replication between our master server and a slave server, which requires stopping all writes to the database.
2011-10-30 23:04 EDT: started transferring cold backup of master database server to new slave. Looks like about an hour to get that done.
2011-10-31 00:04 EDT: 5 more minutes.
2011-10-31 07.56 EDT: Argh! I'd backed up the /var/log/mysql/ directory on the master DB, and it ran out of disk space! I think that's cleared up, but now I need to restart the whole process. Copying files again, will probably be back up by 10AM EDT.
