Possible forum outages, July 17

Postby dejapig » Sat Jul 16, 2016 10:11 am

I received this notice from our server host...

Important Notice from Powersurge - Server Infrastructure Upgrade‏

As part of our dedication to continually improving our hosting services and to better serve our your needs, we at PowerSurge are planning an upgrade to our infrastructure on July 17 starting at 11:30pm EST.

As part of this crucial update we will be upgrading the switch capacity and bandwidth, to make your websites load faster as well as tightening security. It is possible you may experience a temporary downtime during this period however it is our goal to keep this to an absolute minimum.


I hope it doesn't affect our site beyond that. :shock:
Fingers crossed! :grin:

It's nice that they notified you! That's the only time I've ever heard of a forum host doing that. Good move -- avoids their having to deal with customers freaking out!

Looks like they're getting better at this upgrade business! :-)

I spoke too soon -- we were off the air this AM until a few minutes ago.

Anyway, deja, I guess you can disregard the email I sent, unless the forum "winks out" again!

I was, too, early early; but then it crashed.

Examine the date-stamp on my email -- I tried accessing one last time before sending, just to make sure they hadn't fixed it, but it was still down as of that moment.
