SimpleMachines Server issues
« on: October 29, 2010, 01:29:14 PM »
Dear SMF users and visitors,

Over the past few days, and currently still, SimpleMachines.org is under a low level DDoS attack. The server team has been working at best effort on keeping the site stable and running smoothly but unfortunately we still have experienced a few hiccups. Due to the nature of our setup, it may appear to be working like a flash light from time to time.

We are still working on the issue and making modifications both software and hardware side to ensure you do not experience any trouble from this lame action.

We apologise for any inconvenience and hope you will understand.

Thank you and happy foruming,
- Simple Machines Team

I don't know why people will be attacking this nice website, some people are wicked, how can they be so rude? SMF is one of the best software on the net and the best thing is  -  it is free, i will surely pay to get SMF if it dares go premium.Thanks for the updates, hope you handles it well

Sorry to bring this back up, but it still seems to be causing problems.

Thanks for informing me.  It's really annoying when I go to post on a forum, only to have it constantly not load.

Then you don't know my site :P Only thing it does is give me database errors.

How long does it usually take to respond to sites being down by the DDOS?

SMF does not host any other forums than this one. Forums may be installed by their admins using the software we're providing, but we are not hosting them.
To-do lists are for deferral. The more things you write down the later they're done… until you have 100s of lists of things you don't do.

Okay.  I'll try to contact the main admin of the forum and let him or her know.
