2:04pm, June 11, 2018WHAT: community.plu.edu Web Services Offline
WHEN: Beginning 05/31/2018
Current Status: Web Services - Resolved, Editing/Uploading - Ongoing
*Update - 6/11/2018*
The community.plu.edu system is back online for purposes of serving web pages. However, access to login to the server to manage the content for user accounts is currently restricted to on-campus only access. I&TS continues to evaluate our options for how to offer this service going forward.
*Update - 6/7/2018*
Maintenance efforts are ongoing. This system will continue to be offline overnight, but we hope to have at least partial availability sometime tomorrow (Friday, June 8th). Users of this system should know that all of their data (web pages) are intact and should be available once the partial availability takes affect, however, their ability to access and edit/modify their files may be limited.
Maintenance efforts are ongoing. This system will continue to be offline for the time being. We hope to have a more complete update if not system restoration within the next day or two.
*Original Post - 5/31/2018*
Information & Technology Services found it necessary to take the server responsible for community.plu.edu web sites offline to address unanticipated system maintenance issues. For websites accessed through community.plu.edu, the server providing hosting and web page redirection services will not be available until further notice. We are working to restore this service as soon as possible.
Service(s) Impacted: community.plu.edu based web sites
Workarounds: For web sites hosted on the Google Sites portion of this service, they can still be accessed and managed through https://sites.google.com/a/plu.edu All other sites hosted through the on-campus server (aka angelica.plu.edu), will not be accessible until service restoration is complete.
Next Update: As new information becomes available.
Root Cause / Continuous Improvement: To be determined.
