Due to a backend database issue with the Ensim interface, I will need to take the server down. Without going into much detail, the database used by Ensim has become corrupt, affecting the control panel and a few other services. Unfortunately, their "full" backup doesn't include this database, so it has been decided to migrate the sites to a rebuilt server.

The "new" server is already available, and is ready to have all current sites moved to it using the most recent full backup and then copying all current files and databases. This process should only take a a couple of hours, however to ensure the process goes smoothly I am placing a window of about 4-6 hours. I will begin the migration at 2:00 AM (Eastern) Sunday morning. During this time, all services, with the exception of DNS, will be unavailable to prevent overlap and to dedicate as much CPU time as possible to the migration.

I apologize for any incovenience this may cause. Thank you for your patience.

Okay, everything seems to be back up and running correctly on the replacement server. Things ran a little long due to the size of the migration, and the manual actions that needed to take place.

If you notice any missing files, or are having trouble accessing, editing, or deleting files in your personal or site directories, please let me know.

Again, sorry for the outage. I'm going to leave a few emails and catch a few z's...

SMTP mail notifications seems to be broken again. Just sent you a PM and got an SMTP error.

There appears to be an issue with the individual sites' DNS resolution config file. Hopefully, it's fixed now...

Try now. The permissions on the file hadn't updated from the migration, and were locked down to root only.
