We are rebooting all free hosting servers at this time to complete a kernel upgrade. Downtime is expected to be less than 10 minutes per server.
Update 11:16 PM EDT: All servers have returned online. No further downtime is expected.
We will be upgrading PHP on all the Free Hosting servers, including Illuminated, this Wednesday. The upgrade is scheduled to begin at 2:00am UTC, and will likely take several hours. Brief, minimal service interruptions are expected throughout this time frame.
After the upgrade, all Free Servers (absolut, level, vox, and illuminated) will be set to run on PHP 5.5 as the default PHP version. PHP 5.3 and PHP 5.4 will still be available for users who cannot upgrade to PHP 5.5 at this time; instructions on how to switch your PHP version are available here. For Illuminated, PHP 5.2 will be available in addition to 5.3, 5.4, and 5.5. Please note that we do not officially support older PHP versions, and we do not guarantee this service from failure. You should always upgrade your scripts so that they run on the most recent version of PHP.
For more information on what sorts of changes you can expect from PHP 5.5, see the PHP 5.5 Migration Guide on php.net.
Currently there appears to be an issue causing the HTTP server on Absolut to fail, meaning that websites are failing to load on this specific server. We are aware of the issue and hope to fix it as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience.
This issue has been resolved.
We are currently investigating the cause of the 503 errors that are popping up on Absolut. Please be patient as we investigate the root cause of this issue. There may be temporary periods of downtime as we restart some services.
Update 12:44 EST: This should now be resolved.
