Downtime

Post by bjcollin » Mon Aug 13, 2018 6:32 pm

Sorry about the downtime this past weekend through Sunday 8/12/2018... we had some massive thunderstorms and rain here in San Antonio TX over this past weekend. Our power was intermittent at the house this past weekend causing the Linux server that hosts this board to reboot itself several times. Then on Sunday evening the cable internet connection to the house was not working so it must have been waterlogged somewhere else lower in the neighborhood. It was restored about midnight last night and everything seems to be working again now. Praying y'all had a great weekend.

in Christ,

Howdy,

Sorry if you tried to access the board tonight and could not....

We have done a few upgrades...

1. Updated the server from Ubuntu Linux v 16 to Ubuntu Linux v18
2. Updated the board software to phpbb3 v3.2.3

Thank you!

in Christ,

It looks like San Antonio had a Halloween surprise today... massive thunder showers with power outages at our house put the board off line this afternoon and evening. 10/31 Board was restored after I got back from church this evening. Cheers.

Argh... windstorm 40-50 mph winds in San Antonio today caused the power lines in our area to short out and caused several power outages. Server was down from 3-7p CST. Sorry for the downtime. Maybe somebody can donate an UPS this year? The new server is still in the works for the Christmas holidays. Thank you.

Good News... I was getting tired of all of the power fluctuations here at the house causing the server to go down so much these past few months... so we now have a new APC UPS that will hold up our server and the router across those power outages. I have not fully tested it yet to see how much time it will hold up the server during an outage, and hopefully I will not have to anytime soon.
