  • MX01 Emergency Maintenance

    No comments January 7th, 2017 149

    This evening at 11PM MST we will be restarting our SmarterMail system to apply an emergency patch meant to resolve the issue of not being able to add contacts through the webmail interface. This is an issue that over 3 dozen customers have contacted us about since reported several weeks ago. The update was released several weeks ago, but was held off due to the holidays. Due to the nature of the issue and the impact it produces (not being able to add contact is a problem) we are applying this build ahead of the SmarterMail 16 release.

    Scheduled Date: 12-08-2017
    Scheduled Time:
     6:00 AM – 6:30 AM UTC
    Max Outage Duration: 30 Minutes

  • PHP 7.1 Final Now Available for Windows

    No comments December 5th, 2016 152

    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.

    Thank you for choosing ASPnix as your web hosting provider!

  • MX01 Emergency Maintenance

    No comments November 11th, 2016 182

    Tomorrow, Saturday the 12th at 10PM MST we will be restarting our SmarterMail system to apply the last update for the 15.x release. This release adds many improvements and fixes to the SmarterMail system. You can check the full changelog at https://www.smartertools.com/smartermail/release-notes/15.

    This will be the last update to our SmarterMail system until the 16.x release releases, assuming no major or security issues are found in this build. This build addresses 1 issue that was reported by our customers and we feel once this build is applied, our SmarterMail system will be stable enough to run until the new major SmarterMail build is released. SmarterMail 16 is not out in beta yet, so we expect we will not see the RTM release until February or March of next year. Expect more exciting information about the new SmarterMail 16 release soon!
