Administration > Announcements outage - 25 - 31 December, 2019 .. we're back now.

(1/7) > >>

It has been a long outage due to database server issues with Ionos/1and1 mySQL server.

As of 08:30am Pacific on 31-Dec-2019, I've put the forum back online after changing to a different mySQL server.  The last post based on the backup was:

so we haven't lost any posts (AFAIK), just had the extended outage.  For those interested in the detailed log of the outage,
I've left it up here.  I've also modified the backup procedure to take daily DB dumps so we can quickly recover in the event this mySQL connection issue happens again.

Thanks for all your patience waiting for the forum restoration (and for not bombarding me with emails about the outage).

Have a Happy New Year to all.
Best regards,
