⚠️ Database upgrade planned today, expect some downtime

Hey everyone,

This month’s Discourse upgrade is more complex than usual and involves a database upgrade. If all goes well, this will result in a downtime of about 30 minutes. I expect to start the upgrade around 10am GMT+1 today.

Rebuild is complete, but there are a few database processes that are still running. Expect some slowless for a while.

For a moment I freaked out because of impossible Cloudflare captchas. Good to see everything is working now.

Do you still get those? That shouldn’t happen… I had to run them for a few hours to reduce load on the server while it was updating.

Thanks @bartv, the captchas are gone and everything is back to normal.
