Our host (MDD Hosting) will be doing upgrades June 18 the site will be down for possibly 4 hours

Excerpt from the email I received

On June 18th we will be updating the operating system of the S0 server [] from CloudLinux 7 to CloudLinux 8.

We are scheduling downtime on this date starting at 10 PM Eastern Time until 2 AM Eastern Time. While we expect the upgrade only to take approximately 2 hours, we are scheduling a longer window just in case things don't go as quickly as expected.

CloudLinux 7 reaches End of Life [EoL] on July 1, 2024, so no further security updates or patches will be available after that date. Additionally, cPanel has stopped providing updates for CloudLinux 7, keeping us on a slightly older version lacking some of the newer features they've released recently.

CloudLinux 8 reaches End of Life [EoL] on May 31, 2029, so we do not anticipate having to perform this kind of maintenance again for the next 5 years. We would love to go ahead and move to CloudLinux 9, however, cPanel's support for CloudLinux 9 is experimental and not recommended for production environments.
