Back-end upgrades require some downtime

Hi All

So we need to do a thing or two today to take us another step towards making Yola better.

We are going to be making significant improvements in the way we store user's sites, which will provide us the infrastructure to develop a number of new features in the future.

This is a biggie, so we are going to need to take the site builder down for one and a half to two hours. As always we have tried to do this in hours when usage of the site builder is at it's lowest. However, we are aware that there are always some customers who want to be working on their websites, and we apologize to anyone who is inconvenienced this time round!

Although you won't see any shiny new features when logins are restored, the work we are doing today will put us in a strong position to carry out many of the exciting plans we have for this year.

Logins to the Yola site builder will be disabled from 4am PST (12pm GMT). To check the time in your time zone, see: World Clock

Please note: The availability of your published sites will not be affected during this time!

Check this thread for updates on our progress!

That would be nice but it is not the way of the web....Sort of like saying you would like to still be able to drive your car while a mechanic is working on it.....I get this sort of notice from...PayPal,Google and a few others concerning downtime for upgrades and or maintenance.

@sagar: that is the dream! We hope to get there one day, but for now we just have to select low volume hours and work as fast as we can. Hope you can bear with us a bit longer.

No - we take a global view when we calculate the optimal time to do a release of this nature. We are nearly done, if you could bear with us for a few minutes.

Logins are restored! Thanks everyone for sticking with us. You can resume work on your sites.

Everything appears stable and passed a vigorous round of quality assurance, but, as always, we will continue to monitor our systems closely!
