    Default Scheduled Maintenance on - 10/01/2016 2AM to 6AM

    As part of our commitment to provide top quality web hosting services, maintenance is required and has been scheduled for the following server.

    Please read these details carefully:

    Server Name: vern
    Service Date: Saturday, 1 October, 2016
    Service Window: 2 AM EST to 6 AM EST
    Details: We are upgrading MySQL to the latest version. This will help with stability, security and general overall improvements. NOTE: There may be an issue with old style passwords for MySQL users. This is very rare, but if the issue does arise, simply reset your MySQL user passwords from your cPanel account. If you do not know how to do this, please open a support ticket for further assistance. We are also upgrading Apache from 2.2 to 2.4. This will improve the overall stability of the server and make improvements to how sites load, while adding latest functionality and fixes. PHP will be defaulted to 5.5, however, you can change this in your cPanel under "Select PHP Version." If you are unsure, please contact us. We do not anticipate any downtime, however, it is not beyond the realm of possibility.
    Expected Downtime: 1 hour

    This means work will begin at some point during this time specified in the service window above, unless unexpected situations arise. During this service window, your site may go temporarily offline. If we are unable to start the maintenance before the service window closes, it will be re-scheduled for the next day at the same time.

    As always, we recommend that you have local copies of your web site in the event of unforeseen issues which may result in complete and total data loss on the server. While we do not anticipate this to be an issue, it is always a wise choice to have copies of your web site in multiple locations.

    You can make copies of your web site using the backup option in your cPanel.

    The maintenance has been successfully finished. Here is the list of changes:
    1. MySQL upgraded from 5.5 to 5.6
    2. Apache upgraded from 2.2 to 2.4
    3. Default PHP updated from 5.3 to 5.5. Please note, all account which use custom PHP weren't affected.
    4. Installed "MultiPHP Manager" (PHP: 5.4-7.1) and "MultiPHP INI Editor" which allows you change PHP version or edit php.ini per domain.
    You can still use "Select PHP Version" if you need to set custom modules.

    Please feel free to open a ticket to our support if you need more information or there is any problem which needs to be resolved.
