Dear Customer,

Please be advised that the following Windows hosting servers will be undergoing maintenance as per the schedule and reason mentioned below.


To enable mod_security rules to increase the security on the servers.

now that you mention it. I got a popup telling me that I was using a newer lib than the core one or something. But it doesn't show anymore.

we have discussed the updating before but the problem is unlicensed users who should not get these updates.

Slept in this morning. Glad you got it worked out. I have had issues in the past when my hosting provider has made security changes and upgrades. Especially changing PHP versions.

You can't know what to expect, every day could bring you new surprises, thatswhy i want to have my own server so i can control everything.

I just don't have experience on that area... will need to google a little...
