Recent site downtime

#1  Postby LIFE » Sep 11, 2012 12:36 pm

Hello crowd,

you may have noticed the site was temporarily unavailable for a couple hours, just now. I only noticed about half an hour ago and notified the host service since I couldn't access the site myself. So far it seems fixed but I don't have an official reply just yet.

So far I cannot confirm this is related to the recent Godaddy hack, to me it looks more like the running services on the server were just playing up for whatever reason. I couldn't restart the server myself so I had to wait for the management to hop in.

In any case I just want to point out that at no point were any user data compromised as sensible data is encrypted in the database.

If you ever should see such a message again there's no need to panic as I have local backups of everything, so worst case is I simply would have to invest a couple hours to restore everything to its latest state :)

Thanks Boss. Truly appreciate your efforts.

I ended up on the WoW forums, reading an argument over someone creating a 9/11 remembrance thread on a games forum. I hold Bernhard indirectly responsible.

Sounds like a good idea for a RatSkep fanfic.

Thanks, Life! :cheers:

I use godaddy and host europe servers and they don't seem related because the host europe did resolve the ratskep domain name - just ended up on a host europe error landing page. It is like the container for the vps was gone.

It's a relief the site's back up. I thought for a moment that something very exciting had happened.
