Migration update — migration downtime on June 23rd

As we approach the finish of the migration process, it’s finally time to physically move BioGPS to its new home at biogps.org. To complete this final step, BioGPS will be unavailable on June 23rd from approximately 10 AM to 12 PM (PDT). When the migration is complete, our new site at biogps.org will be the primary web address for BioGPS. All of your old bookmarks will continue to work.  Nevertheless, we highly encourage you to update your bookmark with our new address.

We’ve also timed the server migration to coincide with our user account migration. We sent out emails two weeks ago to all of our registered users with instructions on how to migrate their accounts, and many of our users have already done so. For those who haven’t, it’s still not too late. Just log in to BioGPS — all it takes is two clicks and one minute. On June 23, all accounts that have not been migrated will be deleted.

Stay tuned for more updates!

      Hi Brian,

      As far as we can tell, BioGPS has been up and running normally since the afternoon of June 30. If you are having problems access BioGPS, please let us know at biogpsatgooglegroupsdotcom.

      Thanks,

      Hi Brian,

      We just discovered that our old site at biogps.gnf.org stopped redirecting to the new servers. This problem persisted for about an hour this afternoon, and during this time older bookmarks showed our migration page. I expect that’s what you were seeing. All should be back to normal now.

      Thanks,
      -andrew
