Did anybody else have trouble getting on MSFN over the weekend? Every time I tried to visit on Saturday afternoon and Sunday, I got a DNS error. I ended up going to one of those "is my website down?" sites, and it said that MSFN was offline.

 

Might that have had something to do with the SQL server issue discussed in the previous couple of posts? At least we don't seem to have lost any posts this time.

Same here. Strange things seem to be happening.

I also had the problem and it was indeed at least a dns issue (the dns server owning the domain name were down).

I had the same issue. I do think it was more than just dns, because I was equally unable to reach MSFN by IP. In any case, for those of us who happen to also be members of RyanVM's forum, we now have a thread there (thanks to tomasz86) to regroup and exchange information on the status of MSFN, should the need ever arise again.

Yep, DNS was not available and direct IP Address also failed. Not just a DNS issue.

I checked the Twitter and Facebook MSFN sites, nothing was posted.

Funny thing was that I actually checked for a thread at RyanVM but did not find one Friday night and Saturday, that one was started Sunday I think.

It seems to me like everything is again cool and dandy. :thumbup:

Glitches in the matrix can happen.

Have the problems become so frequent with this board, such as the most recent outage a few days ago, that they no longer are even mentioned here, or in the "IPB Update July 2013" threads, or any place else that I have seen? I sort of gather, http://www.msfn.org/...cess/?p=1047805, that there was a crash (do we know what caused it?) and some data loss was experienced -- again. Perhaps someone should talk with Nik over at Wincert since I think both sites are now using the same, or close to it, version of the same board software and compare notes. Wincert definitely had some issues when they last "upgraded" the board software, most of which have now been addressed or worked around, but at least they have been stable and do not have some of the formatting issues that have been complained about here. Just my two cents.

 

EDIT:  I saw mention of this latest crash over at Ryan's as well, but no explanation of what happened, if anyone knows that is.  But if no one knows, then THAT is a problem!   :)

Cheers and Regards

That the pinned thread at RyanVM's is already our unofficial regroup point, that's for sure. What happened specifically I sure don't know either, but sure MSFN did become unreachable for some 18 h late Friday and most of Saturday. I don't see it as a new phenomenom, but rather as part of the SQL issues we've been facing from before the update, and which were not completely healed by the update itself AFAICS... However, I keep hoping they'll be solved once and for all soon.

Database issues are caused by Oracle. They changed the way how logs (binary format) are stored in /var/log and filling /var/log partition quickly with tens of GB logs. When /var/log reach 100% database crash. Anyway, binary logs are disabled now.

 

Server is running latest MySQL, PHP and Apache.

What I have been experiencing lately is: I have to keep refreshing my adapter info! (I didnt ever have to do this until a few months ago) sometimes it goes 3/4 days and I dont have to..... (i dont know what is going on)

I have to open WINIPCFG and click RENEW ALL or i cant connect to some sites! (No response from the server (Didnt used to happen so they obviously have changed something with DNS servers THAT IS NOT GOOD!! -- I dont think it has anything to do with MSFN))
