Just a heads up to clients that we have decided to move and integrate our client management, billing and ticket support systems from the current ClientExec + Comdev Helpdesk, over to the industry acclaimed “FreshBooks“. We are beginning the migration process this week and hope to have the new system active in the next couple of weeks.
NB: Also see the initial advance notice announcement on this subject.
This announcement is related to our upcoming work on all servers to enable suPHP. suPHP is a tool for executing PHP scripts with the permissions of their owners. It consists of an Apache module (mod_suphp) and a setuid root binary (suphp) that is called by the Apache module to change the uid of the process executing the PHP interpreter. In more general terms, enabling suphp will add an additional layer of security and remove issues related to file ownership permissions when using popular PHP based applications such as WordPress and Joomla.
The schedule for carrying out the change to servers is as follows:
US BAKER - April 26 2010 @ 12:00 AM EST [ now completed ]
UK BELLAMY – April 26 2010 – 10:00 PM GMT [ now completed ]
UK RICHARDS - April 30 2010 – 10:00 PM GMT [ now completed ]

Just a quick heads up that WordPress 3.0 is scheduled to launch on 1st May – we will be upgrading all client’s site to this new version when it arrives.
UPDATE: WordPress 3.0 should have been released on 1st May, but now, the core developers of WordPress have removed the release date because of bugs that still need to be fixed. There are expectations that the production version will be released in the last week of May or in the early start of June 2010.
