Sydney Linux server Hiruko 25 August 2014

Please find below some information regarding a maintenance window that will occur on Hiruko on 25 August 2014

Description:General performance issues on the server in the past 3 months will be addressed with a migration of the server to a VMware platform. This will be a brand new server operating the latest of technologies.

This will assist with performance and general stability of Hiruko.

Included as part of the maintenance is the upgrade of PHP to version 5.4. This will assist with security of end client websites.
