AfterDawn: Tech news

Major server outages today

Written by Petteri Pyyny (Google+) @ 09 Mar 2003 14:40 User comments (7)

We had one of those days that you can't even imagine of when you have distributed server environment.
In early morning (GMT) our forum server was unavailable to various European countries due a network glitch at our ISP's end.

Later in evening (again, GMT) our main server has some dramatic problems connecting our database servers and the main site was down for good three hours.

Most of the services have been restored now, but there might be some occassional problems within next 24hrs until we get everything fixed (pretty much re-installed everything at the main server today, so something might be missing).

Sorry about the inconvenience this might have caused.

You probably got an error message about CFMAIL or something? The email server was not configured properly, so news comments made through (and not did not get through. Should work now, though =)
