Upgrade of server OS

Post by Spork » Sun Aug 04, 2019 12:17 am

I need to upgrade the server's OS. This is going to obsolete a number of things (for instance the php and MySQL versions). That means it's going to be a very impactful upgrade.

I have to notify other users of the system (notably the BSA troop whose website is also hosted here), but I wanted to let you guys know. I expect to start the upgrade tonight, but may not finish it for a week or more, as I discover pieces that are broken.

OS Upgrade has completed. I still have to upgrade all the support packages, such as PHP, which will affect the forum and such, but at least the OS part is done
