Stanford Sites Updates, July 11 and 13, 2013

IT Services will perform database updates for the Stanford Sites Drupal hosting service, including department and group websites hosted on and individuals' websites hosted on, 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.
