Dhmmawheel was down the whole morning here

Post by Annapurna » Tue Jan 26, 2010 12:03 pm

Just wanted to tell you guys that I couldn't access neither Dhammawheel nor Dharmawheel from 8 to almost 12 pm European time.

I could access all other fora and everything else.

I was quite alerted, needless to say.

Any idea what was wrong?

Ty,

Ah. I'm glad the site didn't hacked. I thought it may be valuable information, since before E sangha went down, it had short prior disappearances too.

I'm no computer specialist, so pardon my ignorance...

Greetings Annabel,

I believe the server was being rebooted. If you're a member of "Dhamma Wheel on Facebook" on Facebook, then there was a link posted to the hosting provider's run-sheet of events.

We endeavour to use that group as an information source if/when Dhamma Wheel or Dharma Wheel are ever down for decent amounts of time, so as to keep members informed.

Metta,
Retro. :)

It seems Dharmawheel is down now, I keep getting a general error message.

lol sorry i was talking about the sister site DHARMAwheel. The little r next to the m does make it hard to read differently.

Greetings Jack,

I suspect he was referring to Dharma Wheel...

Yes, it was the server being rebooted. Here are links to updates:

http://www.webhostingbuzz.com/forum/ss6 ... eboot.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

And if you don't bookmark this and can't get here in the future when DW is down, go to the facebook group page:

http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=9 ... 623&ref=nf" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

You don't need to be a member of facebook to see the wall posts or links.

The web hoster / server was down for a few hours earlier today. Here is the web hosting forum where updates can be found:

Dhamma Wheel on facebook will also have updates, as needed as to the status of Dhamma Wheel.
