January 19, 2014 :: Scheduled MySQL upgrade on Blackice

Discussion started on Server Updates & Outages

This coming Sunday (January 19, 2014) I have scheduled an upgrade of MySQL on our server Blackice to occur at 5am Eastern. 

This process should take approx 30 minutes to complete -- quite possibly less.

During this time, MySQL-driven scripts (like forums, blogs, etc.) will likely be offline.  Static (html-driven) sites, email, etc will not be impacted.

If you have any questions, please feel free to post them here. 

I will update this thread once complete.

Thank you,

The upgrade to MySQL was completed just before 6:30am Eastern this morning.

Everything looks good from what I'm seeing but if you have any issues, please open a ticket or email me.
