Dreamhost did what we feared would happen, while they were in the middle of this big hardware replacement, we tried fixing it ourselves to get things back up and running quickly, but alas now that things are finally finished on thier end, they restored to a broken area again.
We’ll get things up and going again shortly, Should be up sometime this evening. (Sunday night)
Sorry again for all of this.
Please accept this stegosaurus as a gift.
We are terribly sorry for the downtime. Something has happpened with our database that i cant fully recover right now.
Our Host Dreamhost has posted this in my control panel.
In the meantime you see when progress happenes by checking out our Facebook Page, or Following us on Twitter!
Due to issues with the RAID controller, we are replacing the hardware for your server, ‘xxxxx’, and we are restoring all data from our backup server to the new hardware. During this process, the data on the backup server will be mounted directly over NFS to allow your hosting services to remain online for the duration of the process. However, if your site isn’t functioning as expected, please let us know, so we can look into it!
There will likely be intermittent high load fluctuations on the server due to this restoration, which is caused by the large amount of data being sent to the server. Our admin team will be closely monitoring the server to see what they can do to improve performance on this server while the restore completes.
We apologize for the inconvenience caused by this unplanned maintenance. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Support under Support — Contact Support, in your Web Panel. This notice will also appear on that page in your Web Panel and will be updated throughout the process with the latest details we can provide.
Thank you for your patience!
The Happy DreamHost Server Fixing Team
