  • PHP 7.1 Final Now Available for Windows

    No comments December 5th, 2016 11

    php7-transparent

    We are pleased to announce that PHP 7.1 has been released and is now ready for production use! All customers can upgrade and start using PHP 7.1 immediately!

    PHP 7.1 includes many improvements and new features such as…

    In our local tests PHP 7.1 performs slightly better than 7.0, the focus of the new release was more towards new features and improvements, not necessarily around execution performance. Those interested in upgrading to PHP 7.1 can check the migration guide at http://php.net/manual/en/migration71.php.

    As always, before doing any changes to your website, we recommend testing your site fully first before just changing the PHP version and leaving it. PHP 7 has many breaking changes from older versions that can cause major issues with your website. Please check with your application developer before making any changes to confirm compatibility.

    We hope everyone enjoys the new release! If you have any questions, concerns or comments, please let us know.

  • Windows Control Panel Migration

    No comments June 23rd, 2016 370

    There will be a brief interruption of our Windows Control Panel system around 11:30AM MDT for about 30 – 60 minutes while we complete the migration of the system to a new server and complete some additional upgrades.

    During this time customers will not be able to access the Windows Control Panel and scheduled tasks will not be executing. Once the migration and upgrades are completed the system will resume normal operations. This maintenance will improve the performance of the control panel system especially when dealing with large files through the file manager.

    Thank you for choosing ASPnix!

  • MX01 Emergency Maintenance / Outage / Delivery Issues

    No comments May 2nd, 2016 596

    Currently we are experiencing a locking / threading / timing issue with the SmarterMail core. This issue is being caused by the SmarterMail stats tracking system that monitors the spool and gathers statistics about senders, recipients and other information to aid in identifying spam outbreaks and other administrative tasks and our new RAID subsystem, which is causing an unrecoverable lock which eventually stalls the spool and email delivery. We’ve applied the “fix” from SmarterTools however, this has now rendered the mail server completely unable to deliver mail. Emails are being received by our MX01 system, however they are holding in spool and not delivering as they should.

    SmarterTools support team and developers are aware of this problem are on looking into the cause at this time. They are aware of the critical nature of this problem and are working to determine the cause.

    We understand the frustration of this problem, especially on a Monday morning, we are doing our best to resolve this, but unfortunately we are at the mercy of the SmarterTools development team to provide us the fix for this.

    We’d like to thank everyone for their ongoing patience during this time.

  • MX01 SmarterMail Upcoming Scheduled Maintenance / Migration

    2 comments April 29th, 2016 815

    We will be performing the migration of our primary SmarterMail system tomorrow, Saturday the 30th beginning at 6PM MDT. We will be moving the hardware of MX01 into a new server and connecting the new disk system. Customer mail data has been continuously synced to our new disk storage system since our previous announcement, once we’ve shutdown the SmarterMail service will perform a manual sync to ensure all data has been successfully migrated. The migration will be as simple as moving the existing hardware into the new server enclosure and connecting the disk system.

    Scheduled Date: 05-01-2016
    Scheduled Time:
    12:00 AM – 3:00 AM UTC
    Max Outage Duration: 3 Hours

    We are not expecting the migration to take the scheduled duration, however we’ve allocated the window for anything unexpected. During the outage period customers will be unable to send or receive mail. Our backup gateways will handle all incoming mail and attempt delivery once our primary system is back online.

    If you have any questions or concerns please contact our support department.
