Server problem

Postby pete » Sun Oct 09, 2011 9:51 am

Main server not accessible due to unknown problem.

Right now the guys are working on it.

Great timing (not) as I have been away for past 24 hrs and typiong this from an internet cafe.

But please be assured things will be up and running soon - the guys are working on restoring service ASAP

Apologies for the downtime

Update:

OK this happened at a BAD time. A rare weekend away with only limited internet connection. (back now)

On top of this our server hosting only offer skeletal support on weekends.

They did attach a repair gizmo to the server so we could bring it back on but now it seems they have fitted it to the wrong unit.

So Now I am waiting until 8AM EST until they can get another guy out there to hopefully attach it to the correct unit.


Will keep you posted.

OK finally after a lot of work it is now back online.
(I have been stressed out)

A few tweaks still necessary.

Now investigating to try to find out why the main server crashed.

Apologies to all.

Pete,

Your dedication to SimV is awesome.......... but there is never any need to apologize for these kind of things.  Comes under the category of "^&%$ happens."

best,

I agree 100% with JBaymore, Pete, @#$@ happens but as you can see we all stood around in line at the front door all weekend long waiting for the store to reopen here today! LOL! ;D ;D ;D ;D I know I was....

Thanks for all your hard work Pete, I think if anyone deserves to kick back with a cold one or two tonight it is you ;)

I have to say, your dedication to providing a free site of SimV's quality is outstanding Pete  :) :)

I think we should chain the guy to the server rack.  No vacation for YOU!

GACK?

Keep up the good work.  It is appreciated.

So, is the lack of access to the search function related to all this? I've got to say, Pete, that your dedication and professionalism through sh...tuff like this is rare. How's your blood pressure?

Hi

We did have a server issue yesterday thanks to an invasive bot which crashed the whole site and then  caused various problems ... however it should all be working OK again now.



I need to think of where best to report this bot 80legs.com

These guys should not be allowed to function.
