We will be completing planned maintenance on the Purple server between 20:00 and 22:00 UTC on Sun 23rd Nov 2014.

We are not anticipating any downtime however some services will be restarted which may cause outages of a few seconds.

Planned work…

  • Upgrade OS to (security patches have already been installed)
  • Upgrade PHP from v5.4.31 to v5.4.33
  • Roll out stronger default encryption settings for HTTPS as well as SSL connections used for FTP and email (SMTP, IMAP & POP3).

This change to SSL settings may cause issues with older computers connecting to our services. If you have any problems at all please contact us and we’ll find the best way forward.
