We are back · 2012-02-09 16:04 by Wladimir Palant
As you probably noticed, the distribution update yesterday didn’t go as planned. For some reason, the new operating system confused the virtual server manager enough that it refused to start the server again. And since that issue couldn’t be resolved on our side fixing it took a while. Now the system has been restored from backup, I then applied my personal backup (because the hosting provider could only restore an old backup for reasons I’m unable to understand) and now we are only missing a few days worth of issue reports and probably a few forum posts from yesterday’s morning (roughly one hour between my backup and the start of the downtime).
Given that the fallback mechanisms of our hosting provider have a peculiar tendency to fail when they are needed and that the support isn’t very helpful (even getting through to the right division took one hour) the plan is to migrate adblockplus.org to a different hosting over the course of the next three months.
