As you’re already aware, several servers, including Moodle, had a
problem over the weekend, and Moodle was unavailable for about 24
hours while our IT department worked to fix the problem. While
our IT department resolved the problem, they are concerned that
there may be more serious hardware problems ahead.
To avoid further problems with Moodle, our IT department is
planning to migrate Moodle to a different server on Wed, 7/18,
starting at 5pm. Unfortunately, this means that access to Moodle
must be turned off during the migration. Because IT doesn’t know
how long the migration will take, they’re planning (in a
worst-case scenerio) for the migration to take all night (5pm Wed
evening – 8am Thurs morning). I’ve posted a message on the
Moodle home page, and will of course keep you updated as well.
The IT department will also post updates on their Twitter feed:
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
Have a great day!
