Maintenance window on July 14th
by Sam Kottler
The RubyGems.org operations team has been hard at work over the past few weeks putting together completely rebuilt infrastructure to support our growth and scale. All our systems have been built from scratch using Chef and a variety of other tools to help ensure they’re rock solid.
As part of the migration to new systems, we’ll have to take down the rails application which runs RubyGems.org to migrate data from the old databases to the new ones. We’re planning on doing the switch over at 3:30 UTC on July 14th. You can use this tool find the time in your local timezone. We expect the migration to take no more than 30 minutes.
So what does this all mean for you?
bundle installwill continue to work normally
gem yank, and other commands which interact with the database will not work
- RubyGems.org will show a maintenance page if you go to the site in your browser
Thanks for your patience as we work to improve the stability and availability of RubyGems.org.
As always, please feel free to reach out to the RubyGems.org operations team with any issues. Thanks for using RubyGems.org!
