Offline on Sunday: University of Waterloo homepage and some academic-support department websites

Friday, March 30, 2012

The University of Waterloo homepage and websites hosted on info.uwaterloo.ca will be offline due to maintenance from 9am-11am this Sunday, April 1st (no fooling!). These sites include academic-support departments that are not in the WCMS. A ’splash page’ will be displayed to our website visitors during this outage.

Please note that faculty sites and sites now on the WCMS will not be affected.

Email that was sent earlier to webmasters for all sites affected follows:

The production web server info.uwaterloo.ca will be taken offline to apply server firmware and operating system updates on Sunday, April 1st 2012 from 0900 to 1100. During this period web services will not be available, and a splash page will alert visitors to the outage.

Of note, the PHP installation will be upgraded to 5.3.10 to address security concerns. This will require testing to ensure backwards incompatible changes in PHP 5.3 do not affect the function and integrity of PHP-driven sites hosted on info. IST will be in contact with site owners to assist with this process.

Please contact swball@uwaterloo.ca with any concerns or questions about this maintenance that you might have.
