This evening, we’re going to have a scheduled maintenance window from 10PM CST to 11:30PM CST. During the window, we’re going reboot servers to update the network connection speed for all WP Engine sites. The update will increase the outbound network cap by 5x, which will have a rather positive effect on site performance for all customers.
Rebooting the servers will take no more than a few minutes, but we do expect minimal downtime during this period. We estimate downtime at about 5 minutes or less per host to reboot. If you notice any downtime longer than this, please file a ticket at help.wpengine.com.
Once the reboot is over, we’re looking forward to enjoying even better performance for all our customers.
As always, you guys are awesome, and we’re grateful you choose to host your sites with WP Engine.
