Thread: Service interruptions

  1. #1

    Service interruptions

    1. Our ISP has let us know that the Forum will likely be offline for about 20 minutes for a hardware upgrade to the server.
    That should resolve the problems we've been having with the board slowing down.
    A specific time was not given.

    2. The forum will also be taken offline temporarily for a software upgrade: this will happen on Sunday 18 December, around 10 AM GMT, and will last for about 1 hour.

    Today, the forum was offline for about 6 hours due to a technical glitch that prevented the web server from communicating with the database server.
    Our apologies for that.


    Please note that on Sunday 22 January 2012, i.e. tomorrow, an upgrade of the software is scheduled.
    Around 10:00am GMT (approximate time), the board will go offline for about an hour.

    Due to unforseen circumstances no upgrade was performed today, so, the forum will now be taken offline on/around 09:00 AM GMT on Tuesday 27th March for a software upgrade

    The OutPost Forum fell victim to a Denial of Service Attack, which effectively brought the site down for nearly 15.5 hours.

    Earlier on today there was a technical problem at the server farm where the site is hosted, which resulted in The OutPost Forum temporarily not being accessible.

    All is back to normal now.

    A short interruption of service - approx. 15 minutes - is scheduled for today to apply a security patch and a reboot.
