Server Upgrades - Complete

19 June 2017

Following the release of Debian 9 ("Stretch") over the week-end we will be upgrading all our servers over the next couple of weeks. One has been upgraded already and will serve as a test that there are no serious problems.

The upgrade includes new versions of Apache, PostgreSQL, and we have the option of stepping up to PHP 7.

Upgrading may involve a few minutes downtime.

Update: All of our servers have now been fully upgraded and we are monitoring to make sure there are no problems.
