DH Down all the time


I am a new member (signed up last week with their lv1) but ive noticed Dreamhost hsa been down quite a bit. Is it just me? Or is it to everyone?



One of the fileservers was down and that affected some servers that mounted the fileserver. Maybe you were homed on one of the affected servers.
But it is all getting healthier now.



It appears to be coming back slowly. The server was resolving but no response and just now I checked and I am getting bad_httpd_conf from the server. I am able to ssh login and verified no data loss in the file sector.

edit several domains just came up. A few are still down though.


im having the same problem i have 2 webhost accounts with dh and they both give me this error:
error id: “bad_httpd_conf”

the thing is though i have a program which uses the mysql database on my website and now that program is not working and every1 who uses it is getting errors so i really need it up asap i hope some dreamhost moderator is reading this as maybe they can do something for me.


I’ve been having the same problem for over five hours now.

The status.dreamhost.com page suggested things would be “back to normal” hours ago. I’ve been with dreamhost for over a year now and cannot remember such a frustrating experience.


Have a look at this forum post from mattail about possibly fixing your bad httpd problem.

This forum is a customer to customer forum and whilst the various Honchos look in it is best to use the support page if you have unresolvable problems.



I think this is the fourth time in the last 8 months that I have had downtime. If it were my decision to make, I’d move to another host. This is very, very annoying, especially since I just sent out a mass mailing about our non-profit org’s fundraiser!:-/


before i joined dreamhost i knew about their downtimes. this is why i dont host any important site with them. i have had a lot of webmail problems since i started with them like 1 month ago. thing is dreamhost is cheap so i forgive…
