On Sunday, May 8th, we will be rebooting all servers for security and performance upgrades. The reboot process should take less than 10 minutes and we will be rebooting one server at a time. We will be starting at 11 PM GMT-5 (EST) and expect the entire process to take no longer than 60 minutes in total to restart all four servers.

We will be moving from CloudLinux 0.7.49 to 0.8.29 which offers improved I/O performance, statistics tracking, stability, and reliability over the version we are currently operating. This new version is also supported by KSplice rebootless system security patches which means we will be able to keep the system secure without needing reboots often, just as we have been able to do on 0.7.49.

If you have any questions about this scheduled maintenance, the CloudLinux Operating System, or any information about this upgrade do please let us know.

Thank you,

I just realized we meant to schedule this on Sunday and not Saturday! D'oh! Not quite sure how I did that - Sunday is the least busy day.

We'll go ahead and do it tonight as it will only take a few minutes. I've updated the original post.
