Hi,

Has this scheduled maintenance affected any instances?

Around 8pm on the same day, my instance shut off. I restarted it but now get this error:

(this is when trying to do an apt-get upgrade and I get dozens of similar errors) Notice the Read-only file system error.

I’ve been contacting Dreamhost support for the last 2 days trying to fix this error. Without my instance, I don’t have access to my git repo, my website cannot be reach after a press release was made mentioning it, and the powerplant managers at Western Michigan University cannot save or retrieve their monitoring logs.

A similar issue has happened before to at least two other users:
