    Question Server down??

    What happened. Been unable to connect to the SOH Forum for over an hour this afternoon.

    I am searching the logs now to figure out what caused it. We were running exceedingly high server loads. I have the forum software turned off while I investigate.

    I opened the forums.


    Still watching

    Everything seems to be running correctly. I will check back here in a few hours to see if it is still running OK.

    We appear to still be having trouble.

    I made a few changes and let us see if that fixes it.

    Got back in late yesterday after a reboot. Seems fine this morning.

    I know in the past there was a lot of DOS attacks for whatever reason, and I was just wondering who and why if that was the recent cause. Like, who hates us??

    This most recent one I never could figure out. It was running so high on server loads it did not even log the problems.

    Who hates us? I would think it is the opposite. They like us because we are a target to bring down. Much like the other sites.
