Scheduled maintence outage on 2014-02-14

We’re going to be doing some scheduled maintenance on the Network 23 server on Friday 14th Feb 2014 at 13.00h GMT (14.00h CET).  This work is to increase the amount of space available to host sites and their content.  We are expecting the process to take more than ten minutes to complete, but are advising that you expect all Network 23 sites to be unavailable until 14.00h GMT (15.00h CET).

Happy Valentines users!  ;)

New SSL certificate

We had a bit of a hiatus on 5th February when our SSL certificate expired!  However our techs worked away at getting a new up to date certificate up on the server and as of about 17.30 CET we’re all fine and dandy again.  Apologies for the outages today.

Recent outage and upgrades

On 18th June we experienced a number of server issues, which we’re pleased to say we rectified by the early hours of the morning of the 19th.  At the same time we brought forward a scheduled server upgrade and so we’re now running on the latest software.

Our apologies for any inconvenience caused due to this outage.  To support this project, please consider setting up a regular donation of as little as £1 a month.  Thank you.On 18th June we experienced a number of server issues, which we’re pleased to say we rectified by the early hours of the morning of the 19th.  At the same time we brought forward a scheduled server upgrade and so we’re now running on the latest software.

IP address changes that affect those blogs with bespoke web addresses.

We recommend that all network23 users that use bespoke web addresses for their blogs, as opposed to network23.org addresses, do the following:

  1. Remove any existing A (Address) record mappings to the old IP address.
  2. Add new CNAME (Canonical Name) record mappings to network23.org. – note that you will need to include the trailing full stop, unless this is already done for you.
  3. Wait a while for the changes to take affect: this may be up to 24 hours depending on how the Internet’s feeling.  Please also email n23 (dev23 _at_ lists _dot_ riseup _dot_ net) to let us know you’ve done this.

If using your own bespoke web address, do take note that you will receive SSL certificate errors if you use https in front of your web address.  Unfortunately for technical reasons we cannot support https on your own domain name, so please use http to avoid these errors.

UPDATE 2017: We are now able to offer free letsencrypt certificates. Please let us know if you want one.
