Downtime and Roll-back

Recommended Posts

Golumpa

Whoops, I wasn't supposed to press that button...

 

Earlier today the server went down and due to an error on my part I also lost all the data on the server. Luckily I setup a daily backup to happen just in-case something like this was to ever occur, that there will never be too much data lost. I know that some would have been lost but, hopefully, it wont be too much and something that people can create again if it isn't too much hassle.

 

I am sorry about this however the site is back up and this shouldn't happen again. If there is any new bugs you find, do let me know as I had to remake the entire web-server from scratch. 😫

@Golumpa

Hold on - haven't I seen this exact topic before? Getting a serious case of déjà vu here...

 

(Just wondering if I'm right - thank you for all your hard work, not to mention backups!)

The down time got me concerned.  Luckily Discord was running and found out what happened.

 

It does not look like any of my releases yesterday went to the Internet la la land.

 

Thanks for getting the site up quickly.

Just some posts and status updates, etc. Since the last backup.

Golumpa thank you and the staff for getting the site back up again so quicky, lots of love to you ❤️💘

 

sadly and unfortunately things like this do happen,sometimes despite the fact that they should never happen

 

ths is why I have everthing backed myself on my pc/laptop like ,bookmarks,saved links and etc.. in addition to other things I have collected and have it's always a smart thing to have backups

 

I myself have been a average user of the internet, since the year 2005 during all those years I have collected and backuped a lot of things from back then which I still have

 

most of these things are now impossible to obtain anywhere on the internet,all the more reason to always have backups of what you have

I might have confused it with another site. But the wording is so similar to what I remember...

Thank you for notifying us all, the first thing I thought was that the page had fallen, but then I said to myself, that if it's a nandato, I could be in some error. For a moment I worried.

Lucky me, I was thinking up posting some new stuff yesterday, but didn't.

I just happened to decide to visit here less, like alternate days (to focus on work), and that saved a lot of efforts that would have been otherwise wasted.

 

Though some of my PMs did get messed up.

Is the issue fixed, or do you still need time testing the fixes?

You all can calm down now. There was just a temporary issue with the domain name, it was communicated through IRC and Discord once they were able to track down the issue. It just took time to, is all. Not sure why you would be "frightened" tbh.

I have seen many sites come and go in my time during my years, most of them have bounced back on the internet so I for one remain calm in this matter.

 

however I do have a serious question, are we going to have change the domain name of this site anytime soon, Golumpa ?

 

since the problem was a domain name issue.

No. The problem was simply that they forgot to pay for it and it expired. No actual issue.

I assume, the people who run the site.

A late reply but it's better than never.

 

The first downtime was due today me having two servers with our device provider and I accidentally reinstalled the wrong server. Yup completely my fault and I accept that and it shouldn't happen again as I have renamed the server on our provider "DONT FUCKING REINSTALL" 😏

 

The second downtime was due to the domain itself, the nanda.to thing you put in your address bar. I was away that weekend and someone told me it was down, I originally thought it may have been CF (cloudflare) being, well, CF. The next day or two I got even more pings and mentions about it. Like I said I was away for the weekend getting drunk and playing games so I didn't see them. I personally don't hold the domain and the person who did hold.it gave me the account to access it ages ago. As I didn't receive notifications or realize that it was expiring, well it expired and the site went down. When I realized that I promptly got hold of the guy that holds it and got it renewed. Then it was the waiting game of getting the DNS to propengate all over the world that can take a couple of hours to a couple of days.

 

I now have a calendar entry and reminder for when I need to renew the domain next.

 

 

The site isn't going anywhere any time soon. Don't worry.
