We are investigating connectivity issues at the Cape Town data centre.
Service to the port 43 WHOIS service for .ORG.ZA domains has been restored again.
We will perform an upgrade to MariaDB Server, the drop-in replacement for (and better version of) MySQL Server this evening (UTC time). We expect no more than a few minutes of downtime for each server. This work has completed successfully.
We are pleased to announce availability of PHP 8.0 on all our servers. With this, we are also giving notice of the end of availability of PHP 7.3.
We have resolved issues with delayed email delivery on server W-32 in Cape Town today.
Very efficient as always, thank you
