Site upgrades and potential downtime

Post by kmax » Mon Dec 22, 2014 4:56 pm

Over the next two weeks (Dec. 22 through Jan. 4) I will be trying to take some spare time to do some much needed maintenance on BobcatNation. I will be doing upgrades and updates to both the systems as well as the software that runs the site and message board. During this time there may be some downtime to the main site, the message boards or both but I will try to keep it all to a minimum as much as possible. If anyone has any prolonged issues or notices any problems after the updates please email me at kevin@bobcatnation.com. I will try to keep this announcement updated as I can about possible downtimes and completed updates. My apologies for the inconvenience.

Gonna try to do a few of the upgrades today, may be some short full site downtime.

Doing another round of updates this morning. This should only affect the main site (stories, recruiting page, etc.) which will be offline for a bit and not the message board.

Not that I suspect too many people are up early on a Sunday just to check BobcatNation but I am going to be doing another round of software updates this morning. This will affect both the main site as well as the message boards so if you can't get on to either please be patient and try again later.

Upgrades for this morning have been completed. As I mentioned this upgrade was to the board software so please if you notice any issues when using the board please let me know ASAP via PM or email. Also of note, I have upgraded the Tapatalk integration with the board so for those that use Tapatalk if you have any issues there please let me know as well.
