February 16, 2010 in Maintenance
OpenCUNY.org has been successfully transferred to our new server and everyone’s content is safe and sound. As I previously mentioned, you may still experience error messages and inconsistent service over the next 24 hours. This is due to two factors:
- The transfer of our domain name (http://opencuny.org) can take anywhere from 24-36 hours to fully update or propagate throughout the Internet. Thus, a number of you may still be accessing the ‘old’ server and receiving the “OpenCUNY.org will be down for maintenance…” message.
- Our new server needs to be configured to match the same conditions which were available on our old server. This reconfiguration is in process but, as with #1, these changes may take a little bit of time before fully updating. Thus, while a number of you may be able to access http://opencuny.org and even log in, you may receive the “OpenCUNY.org will be down for maintenance…” message when you try to access your specific OpenCUNY site (e.g. http://opencuny.org/node).
I’ll update everyone once issues 1 & 2 are resolved. In the meantime, please let me know if this delay causes a significant inconvenience for you or your group.
