- The database of Ryzom will be moved to another server. This operation will take some time, thus the patch will have an unusually long duration (potentially taking all day).
Is it possible to have the technical reasons why this operation requires so much time please?
In a classic situation, it would be possible to use MariaDB's standard replication to populate the new server while the old one is still in use, then close the old server and set the new one as the main one. Such process would greatly reduce downtime.
Because I cannot imagine a situation where this suggested process cannot work, I'm really curious about why this isn't possible on Ryzom.
