15 Sep 14 migration

This week, we plan on finishing migrating the wikis off of Dreamhost by moving the remaining in house. There are 41 wikis that remain on This will only affect wikis hosted on

We will be able to do this with minimal outage. We will put the wikis into read only mode tomorrow morning. They will still be available, but they will not be editable. This will allow us to migrate them without losing any new changes that may be made. We anticipate the migration to take 2 days, Tuesday and Wednesday. At the end of the process, we will change the DNS which will take the new in house wikis live. At that time, the wikis will be editable.

Any delays in the DNS propagation will simply send users to the old read-only wikis. This will allow us to migrate them without the users noticing any downtime. The DNS propagation time varies. Traditionally, it has taken a few hours. However, under the worst circumstance, it can take up to 3 days.

Please contact me with any concerns.
