    Site Outage - 11/05/20


    Earlier, we experienced an outage that did not last very long.

    According to the developers:

    cPanel [website and server management user interface] did an auto update to a new minor version of MariaDB [relational database management system] which seems to have a bug with PHP 7.2 [hypertext preprocessor scripting language] and older.

    In order to get us back online, we needed to install PHP 7.3 which required us to upgrade our site platform's version from 1.0 to 1.5 (1.5.24) because 1.0 does not support PHP 7.3.

    At this point, they are going through the site making sure all the modules and functionality is working properly.

    If you notice anything out of whack after two days, please post below. Thanks!
