Dreamhost has done something to hose phpbb2 forums


Somehow you guys have managed to hose the permissions to everyone’s phpbb2 forums. I have put in multiple support tickets about it since yesterday. Nobody, including site admins, can login into the affected forums

Here’s the conversation about the issue on phpbb.com:





This isn’t anything to do with phpBB or you.

If you read the Dreamhost status page comments:
http://tinyurl.com/2yqnh6 scroll to the bottom of page 3 and the top of page 4, you will see this issue is effecting all php based forums & blogs hosted with dreamhost.

Everyone’s worked early in the evening and went down at the same time. No one can log in and no one can post. It’s been 15 hours now & no response or actual post on the Status page about the issue from dreamhost yet.


my php-based forum and blog are working fine.

“Rumor” has it that the problem was not “global” in scope … I’ve been told it was limited to a single cluster (postal). :wink:



If it was global there’d have been more than 3 people bitching that’s for sure :wink:
