Curriculum & Scheduling and Facilities Deployed

Two chunks deployed today:

This upcoming weekend we’re tentatively planning to try switching www and www2, which is one of the final steps in our migration process. There will be no further deployments ntil then. Also, this will require a short outage Friday night while we rewrite a bunch of URLs and do some DNS changes. Expect the outage during the myLane maintenance window, some time between 6pm and 11pm. We’ll try to tweet more details later in the week.

7 departments and less than 500 pages to go!

Unplanned downtime, 10/29

Our apologies for the unplanned website downtime around 10:30 this morning.Everything should have been working again by 10:40.

As part of our process of modernizing our servers, last week we upgraded the operating system software running our website, making some improvements as we did it. Unfortunately, there was a mistyped IP address, causing the server to hiccup a couple times a day.The really bad news is that while fixing that this morning, the networking service froze up, causing the server to stop responding. A quick restart fixed things.

Things should be fixed now. And the silver lining to all of this is that we further tuned some database parameters this time around – the administrative interface to the website should be much faster than it was.
