We have received a notification from OVH that on August 3rd 2018 they are taking down their 2012 VPSes, and they will not be migrating the data.
MCWS will be formulating a plan in the next couple days and will communicate as we go.
If you or someone you know will be affected by this:
Watch this topic! Share this topic with others!
We will identify the affected sites and reach out for those we have contact information for. Please watch updates in case your site is affected and we don’t have contact information.
Back-up your data!
Even if you are not affected by this particular issue, please keep your own back-ups. We will be communicating in the future about back-up policy moving forward. In the mean time, please play it safe and assume that we are not taking back-ups. If you cannot take your own back-ups, reach out to us.
Inventory your data!
We need to know what you have on your hosting to be able to offer you appropriate migration options. Please prepare an inventory now, so that we can move quickly. If you are hosting a WordPress blog, please also inventory any add-ons you are using.
