Stanford Sites Updates, Summer 2016

(Post last updated on: 9/6/16, 10:30AM)

University IT will perform maintenance on all websites on the Stanford Sites Drupal hosting service approximately bi-weekly from July 26th through September 23rd. Details on what is included in each update window are below, and we will update this post as we have more information.

September 13th - 16th

These changes include security-related module upgrades, bug fixes, and new modules for Drupal 7 sites. See below for a complete list of new and updated modules.

Websites are scheduled to receive upgrades on a rolling basis. Please note that when the upgrade begins on a website, any logged-in users will be logged out, and the website will be placed offline temporarily. Visitors will see a message that the website is offline for maintenance. Security patches and database updates will be applied, and the website will be placed back online. We expect each website to be offline for approximately 1 minute during the updates.

If you experience issues with your website hosted on Stanford Sites, please submit a HelpSU request. We will respond as soon as possible. Thanks for using Stanford Sites!
