Thread: The Recent Outage

  1. Default The Recent Outage

    As you may know, we had a fairly significant server outage over the last week. For starters, I blame ArX - wouldn't you?

    Here's the rundown:
    • Something (not sure what yet) caused an issue with our primary drive on the server, which messed up the boot record and crashed the server, so it wouldn't boot up again.
    • I went out to our FTP site where the database backups were being placed every night and found out the files were corrupted, so we couldn't restore from our backups
    • I ended up having the drives pulled from the server and shipped directly to me and was able to recover all of the data up to the point of the crash \o/
    • We purchased a new server (just for giggles and comfort) and uploaded all of the data
    • Scumgrief and I brought everything back online

    We will be putting some additional things in place to avoid this in the future. Sorry for the downtime - thanks for your patience

    You may now unfasten your seat belts and walk about the cabin freely!

    Thank you very much for all your hard work, effort and expense. This website is one of my all favorite things on the internet and I appreciate how much goes into keeping it going.

    If, now or in the future, you decide that you need some assistance to maintain the cost of the website... I know I would contribute something to help out. I'm sure a lot of others would, too. A paypal or kickstarter or something might be worth considering.

    Thanks again!
