FYI everyone, I received this notice from Gamespy. As stated, there may be some limited downtime of the database, so if it happens, please try to re-connect in a few minutes.
Hi Hosted Site Owners,
We will be performing major maintenance and upgrades to our hosting systems this week. Site uptime should not be effected, except database-driven sites who may observe limited (5 to 15 minutes) downtime.
Maintenance will begin on March 7, 2006 at 5 am PT, and we anticipate completion by end of day March 9, 2006.
The following effects will be noticeable to our hosted sites:
* Control panel access will be disabled during the entire maintenance.
* FTP access will still be available but could be interrupted and reset.
* Sites utilizing databases will see a 5 to 15 minute period of downtime when we bring the mySQL servers down and perform upgrades. Database maintenance is currently anticipated on 3/8.
* Users may have connections reset as we bring webservers down, they simply need to reconnect
