Major planned server upgrade 2012-04-21 and 2012-04-22

I have to do a major operating system upgrade to the DEOSS server this weekend. I have already piloted the upgrade on a test server and it worked out OK. Well there was a nasty issue with the MySQL serve failing to start, but I found a fix and noted it well!

Whilst I don’t anticipate any major issues on the main server, it is a very complex upgrade and there may be some downtime. So you may find that your email is a little flaky for a day or two or that some web pages are temporarily unavailable. However, I hope to have it all running again smoothly by Monday morning 2012-04-23. I will post in this site blog once the upgrade is successfully completed.
