I awoke about 30 hours ago this message from DH:
This is just a note to let you know that we've just moved your account to a new server! We apologize for the lack of notice, but this was an emergency move as a perfomance and stability measure.
What does this mean to you? Hopefully nothing!
Well, it actually totally messed up my sites (7 wikis) connection to the databases, and they’ve all been down since early yesterday. They are on the Mediawiki platform (6 are v. 1.10.x and 1 is 1.13.x).
I can’t log in to phpMyAdmin with my credentials. And 6 of the wikis throw this error:
Sorry! This site is experiencing technical difficulties.
Try waiting a few minutes and reloading.
(Can't contact the database server: Access denied for user 'redbug'@'sawerni.com' (using password: YES) (mysql.pynchonwiki.com))
I have no idea what “sawerni.com” is, which may be part of the problem.
My other wiki (v. 1.13.x) throws a 500 Internal Server Error.
Everything was working fine prior to yesterday (2/15/09), prior to the unannounced move.
I’ve been “corresponding” via support tickets since yesterday but have gotten no responses from DH and there is nothing in their announcements about any issues.
