NC031: Maintenance complete

27 April 2019 20:06:52 +0000

With almost everything going exactly according to plan, the maintenance on NC031 was completed and the server rebooted at 19:59 UTC. All websites are once again up and functioning.

Thank-you for your patience and understanding as we worked to improve our services for you. If you have any questions or concerns about today’s maintenance, or anything else, please let us know.

NC031: Emergency maintenance underway

27 April 2019 19:23:19 +0000

The previously scheduled maintenance to add memory to our primary web server (NC031) started at 19:01 UTC, and should take less time than we have scheduled. We will post updates here at the top of every hour.

NC031: Emergency server maintenance

26 April 2019 11:02:07 +0000

We will be upgrading server NC031 (the primary web server) with more memory to address memory shortage issues that have been affecting some websites recently. This maintenance is scheduled to start at 19:00 UTC on Saturday 27 April and is expected to take up to five hours, concluding before approximately 23:59 the same day. (Please use the World Time Server to convert this time to your time zone.) It is possible that the maintenance will take less time. During this time all websites (including the main NinerNet website) will be unavailable, for both browsing and editing.

This maintenance will not affect email.

We will post a notice here when the maintenance starts, progress updates on the hour every hour, and when the maintenance completes. We thank you for your patience as we work to improve our network’s reliability. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact NinerNet support.

Major WordPress upgrade

19 January 2019 08:35:33 +0000

You may have received automated emails from the web server (NC031) control panel recently advising of the availability of an upgrade for WordPress to version 5.0.3. Normally your installation of WordPress (or NinerNet) would upgrade WordPress for you, but because this is a “major upgrade” — from version 4.x to version 5.x — the automated upgrade process is not activated by WordPress and we also will not automatically upgrade WordPress installations installed through the control panel.

However, as you are no doubt aware, WordPress advises that you should always be running the latest version, and this is standard advice for any software, especially Internet-facing software. In fact, most websites run by web applications (such as WordPress) that are hacked at some point are hacked because they’re running an out-of-date version.

As such we strongly recommend that you upgrade your installation of WordPress to the latest version as soon as possible.

The most straightforward way to do this is to log into your installation of WordPress and follow the instructions there to run the upgrade. Or you can do so through the web server control panel at Install Scripts -> Installed Scripts.

You may take one of the following three courses of action at this time:

  • Upgrade your installation of WordPress yourself using one of the two methods stated immediately above.
  • Allow us to run an automated upgrade for you.
  • Choose not to upgrade. If you choose this course of action, please advise us so that we can exclude your website from an automated upgrade, and confirm that you accept the risk of running out-of-date software.

Please note that if your installation of WordPress was not installed through the control panel, then we cannot upgrade it for you. You can confirm whether or not WordPress was installed through the control panel by logging into the web server control panel, and navigating to Install Scripts -> Installed Scripts. If WordPress is listed there you can run the upgrade from there; if it is not listed, then you or your website manager or designer installed WordPress manually, and will need to upgrade it by logging into WordPress.

Any installations of WordPress that have not been upgraded by their owners by 00:01 UTC on Thursday 24 January will be upgraded by NinerNet through the control panel — unless you have asked to be excluded or your installation of WordPress was installed manually — shortly thereafter. To convert this deadline to your time zone please consult the World Time Server.

Thank-you for your attention to this matter. If you have any questions, please contact support.

NC031: Maintenance complete

7 September 2017 03:00:58 +0000

Work to increase the RAM on server NC031 has completed successfully.

If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know. Thank-you for your patience.

NC031: Maintenance update 1

7 September 2017 02:34:00 +0000

Work on the server upgrade started at 02:30.

NC031: Emergency server maintenance

7 September 2017 00:18:40 +0000

We will be performing emergency maintenance on server NC031 within the next couple of hours — starting at 02:30 UTC, 7 September 2017 — to increase the RAM (memory) in the server so that it can handle increasing load. During this time the server will be offline, and most client websites will be unavailable.

Email will be unaffected.

Normally we would try to schedule this kind of maintenance during our regular maintenance window on the weekend, but circumstances dictate that we do this maintenance immediately. We apologise for the inconvenience to you. We expect this maintenance to take less than two hours. Please use WorldTimeServer to convert the time of the maintenance to your time zone.

Please note that our own website (www.niner.net) will also be down during this time. Please check for updates here at status.niner.net.

Please contact us if you have any questions. Thank-you.
