Server Outage today

It was caused by human error, which left most of the domains on the server without nameservers (which are necessary for urls to resolve to IP addresses). It's fixed, but may take time to propagate.

TR is going to look at the pros and cons of migrating to a different server sometime in the next year. We might want to do the same at MR.

Seriiously, though. Thanks for the update. I was wondering what was going on.

Are you saying the nameservers are on the same box as the web server and database server?

We still have the same outage problem as before. It's ok through the 3G network. It's ok from work. But no access to MR, TR and TO from our home ISP. All other internet access is fine from home.

There's a newly opened mindromp Facebook page for anyone having difficulty with access and wanting to be in touch.

I just managed to get back on, dunno how long. Raven in the moving servers thread at TR is also having problems with access, and some TR users are also having problems.

It's almost time to pay the server bill. How about we find a cheaper option and I bet there's already enough in the kitty to pay for what we need.

I notice that the "donate" function is in AUD. I wouldn't mind kicking a few dollars into the aforementioned kitty. How would a Yankee Bloke like myself work this out? Is paypal an option?

Yes, it is. I used PayPal, and it did the conversion for me. Right now the Aussie dollar is a bit lower than the US, so you're donating less than it appears.

Ob, I have no idea about the process of actually moving the forum. Will you be able to do this, regardless where the new site is hosted?

Response to my enquiry to my ISP regarding Mindromp access.

Quote:

Thankyou for your email enquiry.

We have tested the website from our domain and it timesout.

We too have tested it independantly thru mobile 3g and it does openn the website.

We have checked the website records and it appears there may be an issues with their dns records changing and this can cause timeouts on some networks.

If you can contact the owner of the website to notify them of this issue.

This is out of our control.

So I guess this is nothing we didn't already know, but this problem persists permanently for us.

it has gotten better for me. Which is to say I still frequently can't reach MR but usually can try again in a minute or two and get here. Not like it was, with hours of no access.
