This planned maintenance will result in our website, email system and databases being unavailable for approx: 5 minutes, while the server reboots. We are performing this reboot, as we have updated the system software that runs on the server and a reboot is needed to apply these updates to the server Operating System.

There is a 20% chance the server may crash, while applying updates to the Operating System.  Due to this, we’ve made our host aware of this maintenance window, should the server crash and require a hard reboot.

The station will remain on air and this reboot does not affect our Broadcast Server.

  • Re-creating the missing Development Blog
  • creating Show Pages for all the shows aired
  • Creating Bio Pages for all Shout Volunteers

This means that some pages may not work correctly, while this work is being carried out and in addition, links you have bookmarked, may not work.
