The first two parts of our 3-part upgrade of the Member Trees system have completed without requiring any downtime.
As I have mentioned in previous posts, we are spending a lot of effort behind-the-scenes to upgrade this system so that it will continue to meet customer needs as it grows. As part of this effort, we will be upgrading some software on the servers that house this system. These servers also support Genealogy.com and Rootsweb.com.
The third and most involved piece of the upgrade will occur early Wednesday morning from 12 to 8am MST. During this part of the upgrade we anticipate the following impacts:
- Genealogy.com – Whole site will be down from 12 to 8am MST
- Rootsweb.com & Ancestry.com – Rootsweb’s WorldConnect and its sister database, Ancestry World Tree, will be down from 12 to 8am MST
Just to repeat, the outages related to Rootsweb.com and Ancestry.com will be limited to the WorldConnect and Ancestry World Tree systems only. Ancestry Member Trees (our main tree system) will not be impacted.
Part 1 – Friday, 20 February 2009 – COMPLETE
Part 3 – Wednesday, 25 February 2009 – 12:00 – 8:00 a.m. MST
