Server Maintenance Today - 8/28/09
« on: August 28, 2009, 02:40:46 PM »
FYI everyone, I am at the datacenter replacing failed hardware that caused us to go down a couple of times recently. As a result, we may be up and down a bit the next couple of hours. I don't anticipate any long outages.

thanks for the good news

Thanks again dschwab9.  Your dedication is truly appreciated.

On a side note, SM has just purchased two new servers which dschwab9 implied in his post

New machines are installed. No screws touched any motherboards in the process :-)

That wouldn't have been possible without the Charter Membership donations and other donations... so thanks go out to everyone who donates to our project.

Sorry, but it didn't work too well, as the average pageload is 6~10 seconds.
And search is far worse.
I know there is a lot of people online, but that's no excuse for these load delays.

Not trying to be a pain in the but, but rather report the slow speed.

We're isolating the issue. Some pages were changed right around the time the original server died, so it could be an issue with those changes as well.

Hello,
I need to ask a question about the time server went down. I couldn't reach my forum for a while as everybody, but after server is back, I couldn't login. All our accounts are gone or is there anything we can reach our old forums?
OR we need to create a new forum and register all the members again?
This may be a late question but I was not available to ask that before. Thank you..

This should only potentially have affected things if you were in the admin panel at the time; nothing else.

If things are more messed up please open a topic in the appropriate support board where myself or one of the other Support Specialists can advise you further on your specific issues.
Don’t try to tell me that some power can corrupt a person. You haven’t had enough to know what it’s like.

Hi all.. I hope I am posting this where I should..
When I try to access my forum i get this message
Please try again. If you come back to this error screen, report the error to an administrator.
Also there is a Tab that says Data base error

What can I do? :(

You can open a topic in the support boards instead of hijacking a news post by SMF. :) Your posts is most likely to be read by support people in the support boards.
