Update: The return of MinUWet
We had two significant issues on Monday that caused us to back out:
- We used a GlobalSign-issued SSL certificate for the host ‘minuwet.uwaterloo.ca’. The certificate issued was not recognized by certain non-IE browsers, despite other GlobalSign certificates being recognized by those same browsers. We still don’t know why, so we’ve switched back to Thawte. (we’re evaluating other SSL cert providers)
- There were some bugs on the server-side of ‘test mode’ that our testing did not catch. These bugs have been fixed.
We are going to be re-enabling MinUWet in test mode on Thursday morning between 7:30am and 8:30am. Please let us know (soc @ uwaterloo.ca) if you find performance issues when running MinUWet. We noticed once instance of slowness but couldn’t reproduce.
