Over the next few hours (from this post time), I will be making several coding deployments to handle a couple of database changes that will go into effect at the same time.

There may be a couple of hiccups for a few minutes while the databases sync, but the impact will be minimal; since only the portal (not the primary service) should be affected. In fact, the only foreseeable impact is that users may not be able to upgrade to PLUS until everything is fully tested and operational on the new code.

These changes are part of the continuing billing system overhaul and will allow us to support the new hierarchical account levels (i.e. FREE, BASIC, and PLUS). Those account levels are not to be confused with "PRO Features", as there is no longer any such thing as a PRO account. Your account level is separate and you either "have" PRO features or you don't.

if you notice anything out of the ordinary, please do not report unless you discover issues after I post that the changes are completed and tested.

Correction: These changes will affect the primary delivery scripts after all. There are two instances that need to be updated and the impact to the service will be minimal (offline for less than 2 minutes), so I will proceed as planned.

I do not foresee the planned outage lasting more than 2 minutes and the risk of major issue is low. In the event that the changes cause issue, I will immediately revert to the old code and still have less than 5 minutes of outage (in a worst case).

Testing on the staging server has been completed successfully. The deployment will begin now and the service will go offline for up to 5 minutes during this period.

Done. All of the planned upgrades have been completed. I have tested and see no issues.

The primary service was offline for 2 minutes and is now back online.

This concludes this round of upgrades. If there are any more, they will be announced separately.
