Server issues (forums and community website)

The forums and the community website were down yesterday. The downtime lasted for about a day.

After investigation, it turned out the motherboard on the server had to be replaced. I would like to give credit to our host, SevenL, for helping us in that matter.

SevenL is a Canadian hosting company. Our forums have been hosted by them for about a year now and we rarely experienced downtime. Not only that but to promote Open Source and Linux projects, they provide this server to us for free.

I’ll take this opportunity to thank the hosting companies which are providing us with free servers around the World:

Apologies to everyone for the downtime yesterday and thanks again to hour host for the fantastic work done to fix the issue.

  2. I thought that they were all on the same server 😛 Do you have different hosts for the database orientated sections of the site?

    1. Ryan: Yes, the services are split on 5 different servers and 4 different locations around the World. It improves the performance of each server and it isolates downtime when it occurs. Anyway, if all the services were on the same server it would be down constantly, the traffic would just be too high.

  3. But if we won the lottery we could afford dedicated cloud hosting from 100tb… Yeah I cant belive 100tb of bandwidth lol!
