squid 8: hardware upgrade

We will be starting the hardware upgrade of our squid 8 server within the next hour. The upgrade process will take approximately 30-45 minutes. While we are upgrading the server, there may be some intermittent downtime for the control panel, FTP and MySQL.

Here are the new server specs:

Dell PowerEdge 2850
Dual 3.2GHz Intel Xeon processors
RAID10 with 15K RPM SCSI drives

Please Note: After the migration, if your email program has problems connecting to the server, try restarting it or rebooting your computer. Sometimes the old server’s ip address will get cached and need to be refreshed.

4:33pm Upgrade has started.

4:57pm Upgrade has finished.
