Scheduled Maintenance Window

SmugMug’s weekly scheduled maintenance window is Thursday nights from 2200 Pacific to Friday morning 0300 Pacific.

We totally understand, downtime isn’t fun, and you just might be one of the few that’s up in the wee hours of the morning uploading photos. Unfortunately, there are cases in which we really need a time to bring the site down to perform various tasks and upgrade systems. This is one of the low points of the day/week, and it also coincides with our marathon feature testing/release night! We apologize if this impacts you.

Hopefully this gives you two gifts: Some extra sleep, and some new features to play with when you wake up all rested the next morning.

We will do our best to keep the work within the window, and we’ll post to our outage blog Thursday afternoon that we’re going to be working that evening. Not all weeks will have new features or a need to perform maintenance.

What’s Read-only?

Sometimes our changes don’t require us to take the site completely down.  We call this “read-only” mode, which means you can still browse your SmugMug site. You can’t make changes like edit captions, post comments, or upload photos while we are in this state.
