There is maintenance on the databases at Dreamhost today. How long is this expected? I didn't see a time estimate posted when I clicked on the panel or webFTP pages. Thanks!
Since you mentioned webFTP: http://www.dreamhoststatus.com/ is showing webFTP has been disabled today for security reasons.
Dreamhost uses http://www.dreamhoststatus.com/ for status updates because they have it hosted elsewhere and can post updates even if they are completely under a DDoS attack or were wiped away completely, so be sure to bookmark that site as well.[hr]You can access your files via an FTP client such as filezilla http://wiki.dreamhost.com/FileZilla_Setup
Great! Thanks -- I did not have the status site noted or bookmarked.
