HATTIESBURG, Miss. - The University of Southern Mississippi Athletics Department official website, SouthernMiss.com, will be undergoing maintenance and be unable to be updated starting Monday, July 1 at 9 p.m. CT and running through sometime Thursday, July 4. Although the website will not be able to be updated, certain components will still be visible to all users.
Southern Miss Athletics encourages fans and frequent viewers of the website to go to to Southern Miss' official Facebook pages or to follow their official Twitter accounts for the most up-to-date information about Southern Miss Athletics during the maintenance days. Fans can also go to official Facebook and Twitter accounts for several sports and coaches for updated information. A full list of official Facebook and Twitter accounts are listed HERE.
The cause for the maintenance is due to Southern Miss Athletics' host site (CBSSports.com College Network) being moved from its core infrastructure to a new data center. As a result of this move, SouthernMiss.com will see a significant expansion of its core infrastructure environment and network connectivity.
The move is expected to be completed within 48 to 72 hours. Throughout the move, SouthernMiss.com will remain visible to the world, but Southern Miss Athletics will be unable to post new content to the website during this move. This includes posting a weekly video for the Rise to the Top campaign featuring an assistanct football coach. Additonally, no Facebook chat with the respective coach will be held, either.
Southern Miss Athletics thanks you in advance for your understanding and patience and wishes everyone a fun and safe Fourth of July. SMTTT!
