A mistake on my part led to the the site being down for a hour or so this morning. Sorry about that. I think also at least one post, possibly by @Z.W. Wolf, was lost.

So, @Mick West , can you tell us what was @Z.W. Wolf 's post about, that made our bosses completely take our site (and job) our of air for one whole hour? That's fishy to say the least. I doubt you will say anything!

Did he uncover something that he shouldn't? Why haven't we heard from him since yesterday? Is my post also going to be deleted? Am I going to be deleted?

I am scared.

I foolishly tried to upgrade from Ubuntu 14.04 to 16.04 (and hence php 7.0, which is twice as fast), on the live server. "It will be fine" they said,
"it worked for me" they helpfully added.

After digging it out via backups, I've spent the rest of the day trying to get it to work on a mirror. Still not working. I just nuked it from orbit to try again tomorrow.

Ouch. I hate these IT people and their reassurance. Lol.

PS: as a PM I do that all the time. ;-)


Fundamental error ^^ as I work in IT.. never, NEVER say "it will", to say "it might work" or "it should work" is the golden rule :D
