Scheduled downtime for Green Party website(s) tonight

We’re going to be upgrading some systems which power the Green Party website tonight.

This means that we’ll be pulling a few cords and crossing some wires from the early evening, and while that’s happening some of our sites will be down.

… and probably one or two campaign or internal sites as well.

We’ll update here with progress reports for those of you who might need to know when things are coming back online, and you’re welcome to use the comments here to report any issues you see when things come back up!

Sorry that this is very boring and technical and not the usual tone.

  1. I was hoping to throw Goodnight Kiwi tripping over the power cable on this post, but I can’t find a copy online. So I’ll have to settle for this …

  2. I have a copy I screenshot of goodnight kiwi tripping over the power cable from a youtube video about the history of goodnight kiwi if you want it 🙂

  3. Hi – I’m having problems with entering new contacts on the database and getting the message : Failed to update location details. Error was: Array ( [is_error] => 1 [error_message] => Please set atleast one location block. ( address or email or phone or im or website) )
    Failed to update location details. Error was: Array ( [is_error] => 1 [error_message] => Please set atleast one location block. ( address or email or phone or im or website) ). This may be associated with picking up stuff from the electoral roll though addresses I’ve put in manually are also disappearing.

  4. Now that everything is running smoothly – can I ask why so many of our tech team have logins but never post on g.blog?

    We might have more than 5 tech geeks in the community that reads this blog, c’mon guys write us an amusing post about green tech in computing.
    You can even get away with linking Boingboing and anywhere else you like.

    Stevedore is kinda busy, it would be nice to use this channel for more than just me and Toad firing stuff at each other!!!

  5. @Tom Taylor – I will check into that, thanks for letting us know.

    @anarkaytie – Gosh um yes good point … well, now that I’ve made my a first and unexciting attempt I’ll be more likely to have another go. No promises.

  6. Hey, just tripped over a potential problem with frogblog – tried to click through from front page to Holly Walker’s 9/03/12 post, got error message “Error establishing a database connection”, which didn’t come up when I checked latest post from Gareth Hughes, and the problem repeated when I tried accessing Holly’s post via the sidebar.

    ?database calls to posts prior to sysupgrade not functioning?

    I don’t have time to exhaustively test the ‘prior to upgrade’ posts!
    Luck with that one….
