Wiki now available


📥  Computing Services

Further to the issue experienced over the last few days with the Wiki, we are pleased to announce that the Wiki is now available again.

The downtime was caused by hardware failures that happened as a result of moving storage to the new datacentre. We have managed to restore the Wiki data from a backup taken in the early hours of Friday 21 April 2017. Unfortunately this does mean that any changes that have been made to Wiki pages and spaces after 12:20am on Friday 21 April have not been restored.

We would like to apologise for the inconvenience caused due to the downtime and related issues and we would like to thank you for your patience over the last few days.

If you do have any issues with the Wiki that have not been mentioned here then please contact Digital Marketing and Communications at
