Website downtime: 8 August 2013

Postby singallant » Wed Jul 31, 2013 7:12 pm

I've been notified by our hosting company that they are upgrading all their servers. The one that REACT.org.au sits on is scheduled to be upgraded on 8 August 2013.

You guys probably won't notice any difference, but it might be a bit quicker. It will, however, make my job a lot easier as the software that sits on the server that makes all this work is going to be all new and shiny.

This means that at some point on that day, REACT.org.au will go offline, and the domain name registration needs modification. I've changed the details there to include both old and new info, in the hope that this will minimise downtime, but it might make it worse :drive:.

Apologies for any inconvenience.

So, that downtime that was supposed to happen on August 8 ended up happening yesterday. That's why some of you may have got a 404 error.

There might be a second round of downtime within the next couple of days as we're transferring the the domain name registration to the same company as the web hosting, to save money, to make my life a little easier, and in the hope that if someone takes over from me it doesn't take them 9 months to regain control of everything!

We should be ok now, everything appears to have gone through successfully.
