Upgrade Failure: Cause of Recent Server Outage

Hey everybody!

Sorry for the outage. My website hosting provider decided to upgrade the server’s hardware. The upgrade was needed since the website has been having major issues loading content properly and in a timely manor.¬†Unfortunately, during the upgrade process something went wrong and caused this website to crash for the previous 5 days. I have finally been able to get in and modify the settings to allow the website to operate as minimally as possible to prevent any stress on the server that will cause further downtime. As a result, many of the features this website may be temporarily offline. It was a necessary decision in order to get the main part of the website, the blog posts, publicly available again.

I will update this post once the repairs are made and this pre-dentistry website’s functionality returns to normal. I had a post about resumes planned; however, that is temporarily on hold until conditions return to normal as well!

EDIT: Annnndddddd we are back to full function! I am expecting to release the blogpost about resumes tomorrow!

Thank you for your patience!
