Thanks Richard & Brian for digging into this. Lacking the Linux knowledge I tried working backwards from LC Server 9.0, trying 8.0 and 7.14 with no joy (internal server 500 error codes) - though whether the issues are down to glibc version dependencies is beyond me. Earlier versions have

In addition to bug fixes, I found this in the release notes for glibc 2.13: New optimized string functions for x86-64: strnlen (SSE2), strcasecmp (SSE2, SSSE3, SSE4.2), strncasecmp (SSE2, SSSE3, SSE4.2) Implemented by Ulrich Drepper. This is something that is probably beneficial to string

Thanks Martin (& Brian). It transpires that the VPS in question only has CentOS 6 OS option, even if recreated - so the OS is a given for the short term, pending replacement / upgrade discussions with the hosting provider, which are not my call. One option to get underway might be to deploy an

Last migration that I had was pretty seamless. They migrated everything to a new VPS for me to check out before flipping the switch to migrate to the upgrade. May be worth checking out if they do the same sort of thing. Thanks, Brian On Jul 30, 2018, 1:41 AM -0500, Keith Clarke via use-livecode

Thanks Warren (& Richard) - this probably is the blocker, as this particular VPS is definitely running 2.12 Google suggests that I can’t (or at least shouldn't attempt to) upgrade CentOS 6 with a later glibc version, given its central role. Apparently there are workarounds to install an
