TOPIC: Website is back up
#21337
Website is back up 7 Years, 10 Months ago  
We had a pretty spectacular hardware failure on the server that hosts DwarvenForge.com. First the hosting provider thought it was a problem with the hard drive and after installing a new drive and copying all the data over they discovered it was actually a problem with the server's drive controller.

We are on a new server now with a new drive and thanks to good daily backups and though our provider's great work we didn't loose any data since the last backup that happened a few hours before the crash.

The sad but funny part is that we were planning to move this site to a provider that hosts sites on clusters of computers to avoid downtime from hardware problems. That move was going to happen next week. Its now going to happen this weekend.

As I write this we are still getting the store online. I'll post again when we are all online.

The store is back online. Jeff is dealing with an potential "lost" transactions this afternoon. By lost I mean if you bought something in a couple of hours between the last database snapshot and the hardware failure. The purchase won't be in the database but if the transaction went through Jeff will be able to recreate it in the database with the information at the credit card processor.

I was afraid the website was lying in a ditch someplace...

It can get 'real scary' when you try to log onto a page and keep getting 'not found' for multiple days at a time.
I'm SO GLAD your provider found and fixed the problem.

Good luck on the migration this weekend. See y'all Monday AM?

We are taking steps with weekend to ensure that we don't meet this problem again.

Let's just hope we can stay up until this weekend!
