Upcoming server upgrades
We've got some big improvements to our hosting infrastructure in the works and we wanted to let you know what's coming. Next Wednesday morning, June 16th at midnight (12am CDT, GMT-5), we'll be upgrading our server storage to stay ahead of the fantastic growth we've been experiencing on LightCMS.
In order to make these upgrades, we will have to take the system offline. We anticipate the upgrades will take about 15 minutes, but just to be safe, we're scheduling a window of one hour, from 12am to 1am. While we're performing the upgrades, all LightCMS websites will be offline. We apologize for this inconvenience and we've scheduled the upgrades at the time of lowest system usage in order to minimize their effects on you and your clients.
We appreciate your understanding and support. As always, we're excited that our growth continues to demand expansion of our hosting resources and we are absolutely committed to staying ahead of the curve and ensuring our LightCMS customers enjoy the best possible hosting experience.
Please note: the upgrades mentioned here are separate from the new user interface improvements we have previously mentioned and scheduled for release on Thursday, June 17th. Those improvements are still tentatively scheduled for the 17th and at this point we don't anticipate they will require any system downtime when launched. Stay tuned next week for more on these improvements as the time nears.
