Upcoming Maintenance: A Server Migration

Hello all! This is a short announcement, that we will be doing yet another maintenance for Rabona.

* * *

Yet another?!

That's right. We had some of these maintenances lately, and this one will be the next one—and we hope it will be the last one, as well! 🚀 At least for the foreseeable future.

But why?

We have been receiving a lot of feedback recently about the issues with Rabona performance. As the time goes on, the game becomes more resource-hungry—that is a normal thing. The database grows in size, there's many more matches to simulate as new users join, and so on.

Recently we have taken many steps to improve the performance and usability of Rabona. We started with a database migration to a more powerful server, and now we will be moving our services (like the frontend and the APIs) to a brand new, upgraded server as well.

What to expect?

On February 27th, after the last match of the current 67th season, we will start migrating services to a new server.

The very process should take no more than 15 minutes, but it will require us to change our DNS settings for rabona.io domain and its subdomains.

This means that some users there could be temporary issues with accessing Rabona, or your browser might show a warning regarding an invalid SSL certificate for the domain.

We want to emphasize that these issues will be temporary, and should automatically resolve, usually within a few minutes—worst case scenario a few hours.

What should I do?

There is nothing particular that you should do in preparation for this maintenance. Rabona should work properly in most cases, and if any issues arise, they should be temporary.

Having said that, we do recommend everyone to ensure that you renew your players' contract before the end of the season 🔁, ideally before or just after the last match of the season.

What's next?

This maintenance is the last step in ensuring that Rabona is ready to scale up and receive many more features in the future! 🎉 There should also be an increase in the game's performance.
