We are very pleased to announce that we will be rolling out an improved version of the CGI and Frontpage platform at 4am on Tuesday 8th April.
This platform will replace the current "critcalmass" machine with a high-performance server farm comprising of 6 servers.
The new server platform will include upgrades to the main software packages including PHP 4.3.1 and Perl 5.8.0. The frontpage extensions will be upgraded from version 22.214.171.124 to 5.0.2510.
We envisage that this upgrade work will cause your CGI and Frontpage webspace to be unavailable for up to 2 hours as the new platform is rolled out. Once the new server farm is in place you will not need to make any changes; all your data will be preserved and transferred to the new machines, ready for use.
