Planned Maintenance – CWS Drupal 7 Update on Tuesday June 24

Fri, 06/20/2014 - 8:49am

On Tuesday June 24 CWS will be updating CWS Hosted Drupal 7 sites to the latest versions of Drupal. This update is only for existing Drupal 7 sites. This release includes important security updates for Drupal core and several modules. Although this will incur a 2 to 3 minute interruption in service to the affected websites, most site visitors will not notice the interruption, as most pages are cached. This will be a rolling upgrade and we cannot say exactly when or on which day a specific site will be affected.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact us through our form at

Thank you, Paul Lieberman Central Web Services
