  • Planned Maintenance

Overview

Tonight we will be taking our production server offline briefly to apply a recently distributed software patch. Work is to be conducted in the early morning hours (CST) so as to impact the fewest possible visitors.

This patch is not specifically security related; it applies a number of feature and stability updates to the Linux system kernel on our production host.

Any users visiting sites during the update cycle may briefly experience blank pages or 'webpage unavailable' errors. This is expected behavior, and we apologize for any inconvenience caused. Feel free to contact our team at webadmin@as.ua.edu with questions or support inquiries.
