Site Database Problems (problem fixed)

Post by helicine »

All of yesterday's traffic overloaded the database that runs most of the site, and as of right now (7:04am EDT), the bulk of the site is still down. That should be resolved within a couple of hours. I have to call my provider and tinker w/ a few things and then hopefully we can bring it back online and/or set it up on a more powerful server.

These problems do not impact the forums, they are working just fine :thumb:

What a crazy day yesterday was.
The hits on the site were staggering. :shock:

Thanks for rolling up your sleeves and fixing the issues Erik.

I think we learned some valuable lessons and we'll be better prepared in the future. :thumb:

The DB and server load problems have been corrected. We handled over 2x the traffic yesterday than we did on Tuesday and the server didn't break a sweat.
