The process of the update has begun, I am not sure how long it will take to complete the updating of the game but the game server will be offline for an undetermined amount of time. Even though it may be possible to login at some stage of the update I recommend that you do not login until the update is completed because you will get auto kicked by the server.

I will keep everyone informed of when the update is completed so just be patient and lets hope I don't break anything xD. During this time you are welcome to use the forum as it will not be effected by the update.

The update process consists of 4 main steps:
1 ) shut it all down and prepare for the update
2 ) backup of everything just in case something goes wrong
3 ) update everything that needs to be updated
4 ) test everything to make sure it is running the way that it is supposed to be
( Complete )

Unfortunately despite my best efforts I could not complete this update within the time frame that I assigned for it. I was preparing for the update since yesterday and I put in about 10 solid hours today but I just couldn't get it to work because it is just problem after problem :(. They are not major problems but they add up really fast and I really need to get some sleep now so I will leave it as is for now and I will get started on it again tomorrow as soon as I get a chance.

So the conclusion is that I have done all the updates but there is some really messed up stuff going on that has to be resolved and as a direct result to that I will be leaving the game server offline overnight for the very first time.

I am sure it will all get resolved after I get some much needed good sleep :)
