Panel has not worked at all for me since last week either. Have tried from multiple locations and no go from any. Pretty frustrating to have a real problem or emergency and not even be able to reach tech support at all either. If you try to e-mail tech support directly it gets rejected too unless you do it via the support panel. If not you get this message back:
"We're sorry.. your email was unable to be processed by our automatic support system, and so is being returned to you.
Our system could not find the open support case you were replying to, and so could not automatically tie your message into our system. If thiswas a reply to an EXISTING issue, please be sure to keep the:
in the subject line of your reply!
If this is regarding a NEW issue, we must ask that you submit it through our web panel at:
(You can log in with this email address and your panel password.. have it emailed to you if you've forgotten it!)
All messages submitted through that form are guaranteed to be received!
Our apologies for the inconvenience,
The Happy DreamHost Support Team!"
So not only are you screwed but there's no way to let them know you need help either. It's frustrating.
