Reminder: MySql Upgrade Tonight
Posted on 25 October 2019 04:02 PM

During October, we will be performing a major upgrade to MySql 8.0, from the current MySql 5.6. We are making this change in order to keep up to date with the latest features, fixes and patches for MySql, after giving 8.0 some time to become as reliable as possible. There may however be some issues for very old scripts running on our servers, so there are actions that we are strongly recommend all customers who are using MySql on our servers take. Rather than detail these steps here, we have put together a knowledge base article on our website with our recommended steps to ensure that your website is compatible with the new version:
https://support.liquidsix.com/index.php?/Knowledgebase/Article/View/111/5/the-october-2019-upgrade-to-mysql-8

This change will take place on the 26th October in a window starting at 00:30 UK time (GMT+1) and ending at 06:30.

Delay to US Website Migration
Posted on 13 April 2019 01:27 PM

Customers on our US hosting will have received an email previously about the migration of websites to a new server on the evening of Friday 12th April. Unfortunately, due to unforeseen issues, there has been a delay in completing this. It is still progressing, however we now will not be sending out the IP changes (or making them automatically where possible) for approximately 48 hours.

Please accept our apologies for this and please watch for the IP change email in the next couple of days.

Issue with UK Mail Server
Posted on 08 March 2019 05:31 AM

We are currently working on a hardware issue with the main UK mail server in conjunction with datacenter technicians. This issue means that currently all UK email services are unavailable.

Please accept our apologies for this disruption, we are working to get everything back online as soon as possible and will post further updates as soon as they are available.

 

UPDATE: The hardware issue has been resolved with the datacenter technicians, however in order to restore all mail services we have to rebuild part of the mail server software. We are working as quickly as possible to do this now, and hope to have all main email services restored before 7.30am GMT, hopefully sooner.

 

UPDATE: Major email services should now be up and running. We are continuing to fully rebuild the server, so there may be some disruption, however you should be able to access and send email. If you are still having problems with this, please contact us for assistance.
