Server Upgrade, February 6, 2016

We will be doing server maintenance this weekend that may involve some brief downtime. Your web site(s) and email hosted by may experience a brief outage Saturday morning. We will be making some much needed updates to the web server software in order to correct some security vulnerabilities. Specifically, we will be upgrading to PHP 5.6 and MySQL 5.5.

After the upgrade, I will send out a follow up email letting you know the upgrade is complete. I will also be testing the web sites running on the server, and I would encourage you to test your own site(s) as well. It’s likely that you won’t even notice the upgrade and your web site will perform as it always has. However, there is a possibility that some sites running older or custom-built software may break. We don’t anticipate any issues for our customers, but it is still a good idea to test everything after the upgrade. If you do have an issue, let me know and I can help you determine the steps needed to correct it.

2/6/16 @ 9:20 a.m. – This update is now complete. Please test your site and contact Consulting if you notice any issues. We will be contacting the owners of any sites with issues that we found in our testing.
