The migration of the College of Charleston’s hosted WordPress environment blogs.cofc.edu is complete and service has been restored.
The College’s hosted WordPress environment has been migrated to a new hosting solution. The new environment improves performance and security through more robust infrastructure and services.
When you login at http://blogs.cofc.edu/wp-login.php to manage your blog, please click the button that reads “Choose My COFC” to sign in. We will update the text of this button later to read “Use Your Cougars ID.”
With the migration of WordPress, blog URLs will not change; however the migration may have affected some users who utilize the plugins feature. The new hosted solution manages an active list of allowed and disallowed plugins. Disallowed plugins often provide duplicate functionality or are known to cause security or performance issues. It is important to point out that blogs.cofc.edu is a shared hosted environment where plugins that negatively impact the system cannot be supported. Information Technology is actively notifying users affected by disallowed plugins and working with the host to find an alternate solution where possible. Please be aware that some plugins and their functionality may not be replaceable.
