MySQL updates – important notice

Saturday, June 28th, 2014

We will be starting to roll out updates of MySQL version 5.5 starting next week. Although this 5.5 strain has been available for some time now, it’s a major update to our servers and can affect existing sites – particularly ones that are not running the latest versions of PHP software.

Please use this time to ensure your software is up-to-date (which it, of course, always should be!)

MySQL upgrade on server10.simplewebserver.co.uk

Tuesday, January 18th, 2011

Customers with hosting on server10.simplewebserver.co.uk should be aware that we will be upgrading MySQL from the 5.0 branch to 5.1 early next week.

This shouldn’t cause any issues but you should be aware of the impact of the change:


This will be a one-way upgrade and it will not be possible to downgrade afterwards to do be sure you have suitable backups if required.

Of course, if you have any questions, please get in touch.
