The OWU WordPress server migration that started over a year ago is moving along. We’ve learned a lot about WordPress and Linux and Apache and PHP along the way.
Currently, there are 41 sites now on the new server and 54 sites still on the old server. We’ve added some new ones along the way, and all new sites created this fall have been on the new server.
The new server enforces httpS encryption, and uses our more secure single sign-on, (at this point only for sites using the sites.owu.edu URL.) The new server is also more robust, which means that pages should load faster.
So I’m off to notifying more admins that we need to migrate (or archive, or delete) their site.
