IT issues affecting Moodle – update

Date: 10th July 2018

Information:

Further to the yesterday update, we are aware of two IT issues that are currently affecting Moodle. Please be assured that work is being carefully co-ordinated across multiple teams in DL Support and IT services to try and resolve these as quickly as possible.

  1. Moodle appears to go ‘down’ or ‘offline’. This is an intermittent problem that is also affecting other web services. It is not related to the change in Moodle hosting or the SITS integration project. IT Services have been able to replicate the problem, which is the first step in diagnosing the underlying cause.
  2. Courses not showing correctly in SITS. Yesterday, there was a problem with the server that holds and processes the data from SITS. We are in the process of reinstating the data and carrying out testing on the staging server before updating the live environment.

We will update you as soon as we have any further information about either of these issues. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.
