Intcanoe.org & Intcanoe.org.uk down for a day - but now back

Post by GBR242 » Fri Mar 05, 2010 8:50 am

Hi All,

some of you will have noticed that we had a Server-Crash yesterday. Thanks to those of you who emailed me to point the problem out :-)

I am still trying to ascertain exactly what happened, but the whole server went down that includes 'intcanoe.org' the forum and 'intcanoe.org.uk' and for that matter quite a few other websites too.

But full service is now resumed, so lets keep our fingers crossed.

cheers

Seems that for some.....the problem isn't entirely fixed!

It's working for me....and I can see that others have posted today, but for others it appears to still be misbehaving.

In the short term, someone has been dispatched to go and thump it a few times....turn it off and on and scratch their head. Hopefully this will cure the problem.

In the longer term, we are going to move it from the rather old 'windows' server it is currently on to a smart new 'Linux' box.

This may mean some down time, but I will post before that happens.

cheers
