The Wikimedia Foundation will be testing its secondary data centre. This will make sure that Wikipedia and the other Wikimedia wikis can stay online even after a disaster. To make sure everything is working, the Wikimedia Technology department needs to do a planned test. This test will show if they can reliably switch from one data centre to the other. It requires many teams to prepare for the test and to be available to fix any unexpected problems.
They will switch all traffic to the secondary data centre on Wednesday, 12 September 2018.
On Wednesday, 10 October 2018, they will switch back to the primary data centre.
Unfortunately, because of some limitations in MediaWiki, all editing must stop while we switch. We apologize for this disruption, and we are working to minimize it in the future.
Je zult in staat zijn om artikelen te lezen, maar niet te bewerken voor een korte periode.
- Je zal een uur lang niet in staat zijn om bewerkingen te maken op woensdag 12 september en woensdag 10 oktober. The test will start at 14:00 UTC (15:00 BST, 16:00 CEST, 10:00 EDT, 07:00 PDT, 23:00 JST, and in New Zealand at 02:00 NZST on Thursday 13 September and Thursday 11 October).
- Je zal een foutmelding zien als je probeert te bewerken. We hope that no edits will be lost during these minutes, but we can't guarantee it. Als je deze foutmelding krijgt, raden we je aan om te wachten totdat alles weer terug naar normaal is. Then you should be able to save your edit. But, we recommend that you make a copy of your changes first, just in case.
- Background jobs will be slower and some may be dropped. Red links might not be updated as quickly as normal. If you create an article that is already linked somewhere else, the link will stay red longer than usual. Some long-running scripts will have to be stopped.
- There will be code freezes for the weeks of 10 September 2018 and 8 October 2018. Non-essential code deployments will not happen.
This project may be postponed if necessary. You can read the schedule at wikitech.wikimedia.org. Any changes will be announced in the schedule. There will be more notifications about this. Please share this information with your community. /User:Johan(WMF) (talk)
