  • 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.
