Overnight last night we ran a major maintenance event to evaluate how server1 is operating and also run some important upgrades and security fixes.
We’re pleased to say that the maintenance period was a success and gave us plenty of time to run stress tests which provide information about how well the server is performing. Areas were identified where improvements could be made and many of these improvements were implemented immediately.
The server has also been upgraded to the latest Debian operating system – Debian 7.1 – bringing many security and stability improvements, as well as various new software upgrades (for those interested – new versions of PHP5, Apache and MySQL amongst others).
We will continue to closely monitor server1’s performance to ensure that everything is running smoothly.
