Post subject: Downtime (July 27th) Reply with quote

We suffered about 22 hours of downtime starting Sunday July 26th and ending Monday 27th. What happened exactly remains to be known, but considering the old age of the server the data center decided to move everything to a new machine.

You might have seen the server respond during the day, but MySQL failed to boot at startup. Everything should be fine again. However, during the next few days you may experience intermittent downtime due to maintenance.

Glad to see the website's functioning now and no data was lost Smile
So is this new machine just temporary, or is it going to be MM2C's (and other websites') new home?

For now it's the new home. However, I am considering moved to a VPS to cut down on costs. But that's unrelated to what happened.

thenthornthing, nothing is lost.

Bradley_Wint, combination of procrastination and the inability to find a satisfying and affordable VPS deal.

That'd be a good idea, especially since there isn't much revenue from this site. And I doubt it would make too much of a difference in speed, or would it?

barely since the demands are not near what a dedicated server can push. VPS should be fine.

Not anymore no. Back in the day this was the only acceptable solution. Nowadays it's quite different.
