Forum down?


I thought it would be inevitable that someone would ask so I waited a bit. But it seems no-one has. So…

What happened to the forums earlier today? I got apache server error messages for a large part of the day (UK time). Does this happen often?



It doesn’t happen “often” but it does happen “now and again” … I noticed it acting up around 2230-2300 PST last night, before it crashed completely, and then it didn’t come again for several hours.



There was a week when the forums were mysteriously down every night for an hour, but other than that, I only recall two or three other times when the forums have been down since I’ve been on - and they were back up pretty quickly.

Here’s what support had to say about this morning’s outage:

:confused: Not much…
