Weekly Web Updates – September 11, 2017



Fixes and Tweaks

  • Resolved an issue with one of the Drupal front-end servers that caused intermittent page errors between the morning of Sunday, September 3, and Monday, September 4 and interfered with the SiteImprove crawl.
  • Increased the page cache lifetime for the Course Catalog to 24 hours, which gets cleared nightly when importing new information from Banner. This should increase application performance.

Ongoing Work

  • Creating a new website for the Middlebury Institute of International Studies.
  • Creating a new automatically generated course catalog.
  • Building out the configuration of our CAS servers in Chef, which is a configuration management system. We have already completed this work for our Drupal, WordPress, MediaWiki, GO, Omeka, and the Course Catalog services.
  • Upgrading the Drupal sites for the Davis programs, Dining Menus, and Museum of Art to Drupal 8.
