    Website Maintenance - July 2016

    Post by katimus_prime on Sun Jul 03, 2016 10:52 pm

    Hey Folks!
    Just wanted to give people a heads up that the shared server XU is hosted on is migrating from an old unit to a new unit scheduled on July 9, 2016. There's also going to be a forced php upgrade, which will likely break a couple of our php-based installations. Since work is in full swing for me, I might not be able to address every part that breaks, but I do want to let you guys know that I am aware of it and I will try to take care of the things that are broken when/if they break as soon as I can.

    The things most likely to break are:
    The old forum site, which has been locked for a while anyway
    The wikis (I think oldwiki might still work, but the mediawiki install is tricky and I don't fully understand it)
    The wordpress install (I think I can actually fix this one myself)

    Sorry about this, guys. :<
    If you have important stuff stashed there, now would be the time to back these up. I apologize for the inconvenience. T^T

    At least I made some cute error page graphics in the meantime.  ^^;

    Currently, all site-side scripts will probably be giving people 500 Error messages. I'm hoping I'll be able to nail down what I can and bring it back up tomorrow.
