Update (12:30pm EST, Dec 20th, 2015)

Araport server transition to TACC is now complete.

  • Services restored: ThaleMine, JBrowse, WebApollo applications, and the search box
  • Issues, yet to be resolved: "Secure Connection Failed: Certificate Revoked" error thrown by the web browser
  • Reason for Error: Araport and ThaleMine run on different hosts and each creates a secure connection, and these connections reference the secure certificate. The Araport situation is unchanged but so far we have not managed to reconfigure the certificate to work on ThaleMine's new host. It is your browser warning you “certificate revoked”. Most browsers give you an option to proceed. If yours does not, you could try another browser. Thereafter, the browser will cross out “https” in the URL to indicate the data is being transmitted over an insecure, unencrypted connection. Despite this warning, it should not expose you to any risk.
