DhO Hacked and Upgrade


ATTENTION!: It appears that our server has been hacked through this version of Liferay, meaning it is no longer secure, and so expect instability as we deal with this and attempt to upgrade to Liferay 7, which we failed to be able to do last year the last time the team attempted it, but we have no choice at this point, so bear with us as we try again. Save any long posts in a text file before posting them. You can follow me on Twitter at @danielmingram for updates if the site is down. Apologies for any complexity this causes. We will work as fast as we can. We have backups of the database, so hopefully nothing will be lost. Thanks to all helping with this complex process.

Downtime and power failure

Downtime and power failure

Dear DhO,

A storm last night took out the power here until this afternoon, and, as the DhO runs on a macmini in my guesthouse, took out the DhO for the night.

We are obviously back up and running, but in the next few days I will do some much needed update of the server the DhO runs on, but will give some warning before I do that update.

Thanks for your patience and understanding,


third underservant to the DhO

I will shortly shut down the DhO for a bit to do some updates. Save any work now.

Well, as always Simon got us back up and running after the updates: many thanks to him for this!
