IT Services will perform database updates for the Stanford Sites Drupal hosting service, including department and group websites hosted on sites.stanford.edu and individuals' websites hosted on people.stanford.edu, on the following dates:
- Thursday, July 11, from 4 a.m. - 6 a.m.
- Saturday, July 13, from 5 a.m. - 8 a.m.
Changes include updating the database engine from MyISAM to InnoDB and will be made in a rolling upgrade process; this allows the Stanford Sites system to continue providing service throughout the update window. We expect that each website will have approximately 30-60 seconds of downtime as it is updated.
If you experience issues with your Stanford Site, please submit a HelpSU request, and the Stanford Web Services team will respond as soon as possible.
