Thread: Service interruptions

  1. #31
    You may have noticed that on several occasions the forum wasn't accessible recently.

    There has been a problem at the data center. They thought it was fixed, but the problem kept re-occurring.
    Yesterday, they decided to move sites that were hosted on a specific server to a new one.
    We're hopeful they have solved it now.

    Usually, a backup does not interfere with the operation of the forum.
    Today, however, it caused the forum to not be accessible for about 20 minutes.

    Today, the forum was not accessible for several hours.

    A crucial file for the operation of the forum got corrupted.

    It took a while to figure that out and to restore it from a backup.

    Any files that may have been uploaded in the last two days may have been lost in the process.

    Posts etc. were not affected.

    Never fun to be down, but repaired in under 24hours? Nice work.
    Thanks.
