Unscheduled Downtime - Sun 14th August

Post by Robert T » Sun 14 Aug, 2016 15:35

You may have noticed that the site was down from about 10:40 until around 15:00 today. Something seems to have been putting excessive load on the server (possibly a DDoS attack). I took the issue up with support at our provided, but actually managed to get onto the server and restart things myself. I will keep monitoring the site closely for the next few days. Note that we do have external monitoring I have in place which checks access to the site from about 10 locations around the world, hence why I can be pretty sure when the problem started.
