are the servers down or is it just me?
are the servers down or is it just me?
It's down .
*my sig does not work for server 2 now*
do u find out the reason why it went down? coz i remember it went down a few days ago...should we be expecting more downtime??
mm yea, my site's not working...
No idea. Apprantly, auto reboot didn't work ;(
anyone any idea how long it'll be down?
Until Bondings comes online ;o.
And since this is kind of related, when will new account hosting things be accepted? As someone already mentioned, it's mid-February already. :'(
Soon. We hope to start hosting again by this week or the next week .
I guess I can wait... I'm just gonna work with my current GuildPortal site.
Thank GOD the forum I have isn't glued to my GuildPortal page. I can just hyperlink it from a page here, and save me the endless hours of trouble that would have ensued if I had used the built-in forum...
actually, the servers arent totaly down, theyre up and running as i see it, since directadmin works, and i think emails and other stuff works also, however default http access is not available....
Erm, are you sure Directadmin works?
I can't connect to it ;\
The same thing happened earlier this week. DiractAdmin and FTP were working but site was not loading. Is there something wrong with the server?
Can upload via ftp,But can't visit the sites,Must web server app have some error!I think it
10:29 (gmt +1)
apache is down
yea thats wat i meant but i dnt think the server restarted..or did it?
ohh and also dnt forget to make backups and download them too...just incase
yes i loged to directadmin and checked domain settings and stuff, cause i thought something might be disabled, it worked for sure, wasnt cached...
if you ask me servers are up and running and i wouldnt be concerned about email or data loss... but yeah website is unavailable heh...
after wat happened a few weeks ago....i would atleast backup once a week
I hope that the server will go online very soon.
Because a lot of new members are waiting for accessing my forum.
I hope that Bondings will find time to solve the problem.
In the meantime just wait.
My forums 4 days old with 19 members - I've got 2 on msn now that want to log in but can't...
Mostly I'm jsut worried about losing people interest due to inaccessibility of my site.
Ah well, I can't exactly complain too much, given the conditions of the "hosting package" here.
Beggars can't be critics.
Direct Admin Shows all services as running so perhaps apache has stopped responding...
This is starting to become all too frequent on server 2. I was hoping after the major hardware change things would improve, but it seems not.
I am impressed with Frihost, but I am starting to wonder whether it is sufficient for my needs. All this downtime is starting to get too much.
.....I dont think anyone bitching about it will get it fixed........but if it will let me know there I Can be of some help
The server 2 is a not serius server. What can it be like the one? With cpanel, fantastico,... and running!
actually i preffer directadmin to cpanel, and i quite like server 2, if you dont like it you might look for another host with cpanel
Wow, if cPanel was on server 2, it'd be worst. Really
in how much time should we expect the server to be online? i dont want to be pesky, but the thing is i run a guild with site and forum, and the forum frame html file is on the web server too, forums were down on sunday all day long becouse forumer.com was doing maintainance, and we had recent problems with atspace stablity, so i moved the website here and stated that the reason for it were trully stable servers, removed our mirror notice and stated we wount need it anymore lol...
so i feel kinda bad personaly for saying everything will be online and now its allready off again... thats why im asking heh....
has someone firewalled port 80?
All these downtimes are getting on my nerves. For once I had to start my forum from scratch and just about when things are gaining momentun the server does off again. Aren't the admins seeing this?
We all have to wait for Bondings to come online, no one has access to restart it other than him
maybe you should find yourself some paid hosting....
did i read that right "paid hosting!"
Hmmm... DirectAdmin works, FTP works
Only apache seems to be down. Well let's thats probably not another data loss.
Well, anyway i'm busy downloading a backup.
is it an idea that more users can restart the servers? Like noobie and others. It wordt decrease the downtime
Could anyone with adminrights do something like "httpd2 -k restart" and post the apachelogfile on this forum? Than we can look at it with some more people to find out whats wrong...
If not, I'll just wait
Now I have some more time to study instead of updating my website
I wish the admins luck!
Note for all those people complaining 'bout: 'server down...again?...': a freshly installed server is more likely to crash than a server running for two months or more. The newly installed one needs finetuning on the fly. So this type of problems isn't so bad for a newly installed one.
After all: the hosting is free, so be happy with the uptime!
Hey, I just had a great idea... Do you know the old kindergartengame: 'shout until the people in china can hear you?' All the kids shout one's name very loud and then he can hear it.
Maybe if we tried that with Bondings he would hear it and come online
(Note: if it doesn't work, it's fun to shout virtually. One loud cry from the internet: )
So alltogether now: "BONDINGS... WOULD YOU PLEAZZZZ COME ONLINE??"
(whispering so I won't disturb the echo) "JohanFH"
Mmm...damn, I think it might be time for me to consider some paid hosting indeed. This is a nice service and all, but the recent downtimes and other issues are starting to get pretty annoying. I know Dreamhost has some nice plans...
yep... the sites are down again... i hope it is nothing serios...
Mail server is still up, so I'm happy
Come on I just worked really hard on bringing up my new site. If they reboot the servers again I am gonna get really messed up, it took me a long while too. Hope it is just a downtime thing and not an exploit where they have to reboot!!!!
Loathing in Fear
If you don't want to re-build everything, just log in to DirectAdmin, and make a back-up... DirectAdmin is still working...
I'm really fed up of those problems. Well maybe http access on server 2 will work (one day who knows ?) but for how many days ?
That was workin' until the hardware update...
I can't access anything!! How come some people can access DirectAdmin and some can't?
im annoyed too but if youre fed up why bothering
cause youre trying to access directadmin via url, which doesent work oc since apache is down, and some of us are accessing directadmin based on port http://www.frih.net:2222/
Don't explode like a atomic bomb.
The entire crew is busy to repair this problem.
So i say: STOP COMPLAINING!!
I am also nervous, but i keep myself calm. Do the same and let Bondings and co solve the problem. OK?
It is a free hosting packet, but i am happy that the crew can fix problems as soon as they can.
As you know new hardware as still some illness, but after solving this everything will be allright?
Server down again. Luckily I did backup last week in case something happen again. Hope that i will up soon or at least an announcement from admin.
just to be sure... Download 'backup-Feb-16-2006-1.tar.gz'
^^ I don't want to start from scratch again. just in case that there will be another data loss. I had a server2downandi'llloseallmyfiles-o-phobia so i'm doing all this.
Nothing is working, the site, direct admin, mail... nothing
Hopefully it's not a big issue and Server 2 can be up & running again soon.
Yes it is free but we must post on this forum to keep an account who doesn't work always...
oh well, sever 2 is not very good, 2 downtimes in 1-2 weeks i think
the best to do is make a backup!
Came on bondings come online!
As long as it's not a full reboot like last time, I'm happy. Not a great fan of backups, they always break on me whenever I try uploading them but we will see.
Hey people, please stop complaining.
I'm a server admin myself and I know a brand new server (server 2 is newly installed) is due to malfunctions in the first few weeks (That means: it might happen again in the next few weeks. Those things happen. Even in commercial hosting companies). So please, get off Bondings' back (I know I was joking about calling him but hey, that's a joke) and see what has happened: the server is down for a couple of hours. Ok.
Bad luck. Come back tomorrow. Maybe it's up then. And if your site is so important it can't be offline for 24 hours you should seriously consider getting a loan for your web-work and start your own webhosting or buy some commercial hosting service.
Ok, I guess this sounds a little harsh. The only thing I wanted to say is: don't complain! This is a normal technical malfunction for a new server. This can happen!
And Bondings and co: if you can't fix the problem, please post some logs and info. I'd be glad to help. And I guess there are more people around who can help.
I agree, you got a very good free host so give them time to polish this server, if you don't want to wait find another temporary host and upload your backup there for the time being. If not, you will figure something out. If your site is THAT important, get a paid host! otherwise just deal with it.
Not just new servers, new anything is bound to have malfunctions, but with paid hosts they can afford to have testers... just one example is video games, they dont just come right out, they test them for months/years first...
I have ftp, but no Directadmin and I can't access my site.
This server stuff is all over my head. WE've just set up an apache server to service a very small network, and it seems I'm stumped half the time.
I appreciate everyone's hard work and knowledge. But I have to admit, the timing is inconvenient. Murphy's law, i guess.
I have FTP but nothing else....
I'm downloading a backup just in case...... I recommend everyone else does the same
I hope the server gets back up soon.
you can access direct admin. it's easier to do back up from there.
Hope the site'll be up today. *sigh...
i'm down, so is my site, but i can wait...
the sun is still shining
Phew at least it's not just me. Hopefully nothing serious like last time! Oh to be on server 1
i can view my DA via http://nunipio.frih.net:2222
Aha.... thats why I couldn't get into DirectAdmin...
I was doing "jstoeffler.frih.net/config" because that's what I usually do and it works.
I got DA but not mail. Good luck bondings i hope you can fix the problem.
peoples pages seem to be coming back up, i just randomly tested a few, they worked... mine still doesnt tho
Everything seems to be up and working now.
At least my page is....
MY SITES BACK UP
mine is still down, I hope its up tommorow
yea mines working too now...just hope that was the last downtime we get
i'm back up too, and my site is working also
My website is up as well
Hmm, I wonder what was the problem. Nice to have things up and running agian.
Yeah... what really happened?
Okay, the server is back up.
If your site is still not working, please start a new topic in this forum
I was quite busy and stressed with the server yesterday so that's why I didn't post on the forums.
Enderwiggin, your pages should be showing fine. Maybe your php script isn't working with the new apache version. Please create a new thread if there is still a problem with it.
Don't put too much stress on yourself. It ain't really good...
