We have been informed by our data center, and server provider, that they will be performing maintenance on the nodes that several of our servers are using. This will require them to shut down several of our servers for a brief time.
There are a few changes that will be made to some of Widomaker’s telephone numbers during the next 30 days.
Widomaker’s main business number, 757-253-7621, will NOT be changing. Please continue to use, 757-253-7621, to reach us.
However, we have maintained several alternate numbers that will be depreciated, and may be discontinued/disconnected in the near future. Please make sure that you have our main business number, 757-253-7621, on file, in case you need to call our office.
Early this morning the Plesk6 virtual hosting server appeared to be under heavy load & responding slowly. We opened a trouble ticket with our data center and server provider to investigate.
The Plesk6 server was up and running properly again before 10:00am.
Our provider believes the underlying cause is hardware related. They have scheduled a service window tonight (10/1/2014), and early tomorrow morning (10/2/2014), during off peak hours, to migrate the Plesk6 server to different hardware. The migration is scheduled to start after midnight, tonight.
The server will be unavailable during the migration to new hardware. Because of the large amount of data that needs to be transferred, the migration may take several hours.
