Dispatches From The Geeks

News and Announcements from the MCS Systems Group

MCS Website fixed

In working with the ANL web team, we were finally able to locate the issue and correct it yesterday afternoon by around 5:20. A change made globally to http://www.anl.gov (which is where the main MCS website is hosted) to bring mobile support to the website and make some font changes had unexpected behavior on how our website was rendered. We’re still not sure exactly why the issue presented the way it did, but it was some interaction between the main website and our proxy running at http://www.mcs.anl.gov that caused an issue in rendering. The problem was not present on the testing website, which is why they didn’t believe there was an issue pushing out the update.

We’ll be meeting with the team in January to make sure further rollouts don’t hit us this way, as well as go over the plan for updating our proxy configuration.
