Drupal Update Scheduled for March 13

We wanted to let our website editors know that we plan on updating all six of our Drupal websites on March 13. This update is to the modules for that system that we work with Amherst to develop: Monster Menus, the Media module which manages files on the sites, and the RSS Page module which provides a content type for displaying feeds. This update may result in the site being unavailable for a few minutes while a database update script runs and will be done during our scheduled downtime that Sunday.

The affected websites are:

  • http://www.middlebury.edu
  • http://www.miis.edu
  • http://museum.middlebury.edu
  • http://www.davisprojectsforpeace.org
  • http://www.davisuwcscholars.org

  • Keep current with the necessary skills and tools do this (or receive training)
  • Consult with stakeholders before implementing major refresh & enhancements.
