  • 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.

    Thank you for choosing ASPnix as your web hosting provider!

  • MX01 Emergency Maintenance

    No comments November 11th, 2016 38

    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!

    Scheduled Date: 11-13-2016
    Scheduled Time:
     5:00 AM – 5:30 AM UTC
    Max Outage Duration: 30 Minutes

  • TS01-GA Data Center Migration

    No comments September 9th, 2016 279

    We will be migrating our TS01-GA TeamSpeak services to another data-center located in Atlanta. The current host will remain online while we synchronize the 2 servers. Once completed, we will shutdown the old host and bring up the new host. There will be a delay in connecting to the new server (up to 1 hour) for DNS propagation to complete since the IP address of the host will change.

    The new IP of the server is 23.226.236.22. Moving away from our previous data-center will stop the outages related to the data-center routers being constantly under DDOS attacks and other issues related to filtering, high latency, packet loss etc.

    We’d like to thank everyone for their patience during this time while we work to improve our TeamSpeak services in Atlanta.

    Thank you for choosing ASPnix!

    UPDATE: The migration has completed. We are seeing improved latency times from various test locations, some locations as much as 15ms less!
