  • Site Upgrade Scheduled for April 30, 2016

    On April 30, 2016, the SawdustZone site will be down for an upgrade. Because of the changes to VB5, there is a significant portion of manual configuration so we estimate about 7-9 hours to complete the process. About 2 to 3 hours to make backups and perform the technical upgrade, and 5-6 hours to do the manual configuration necessary.

    This would be a good day to spend in the shop instead of hanging around here.

    The basic plan is:
    • 8:00 am Shutdown the site.
    • Backup the site files
    • Backup the database
    • Install the vb5 code
    • Run the vb5 upgrade process
    • Load the styles
    • Do the manual configuration
    • 3:00-5:00 PM Bring the site back on line.

    As always, if things don't go as planned, delete the upgraded site and restore from backups and try again another day.
    An ethical man knows the right thing to do.
    A moral man does it.
