Area51 up, phpbb.com down?

Post by A_Jelly_Doughnut »

How would that be possible? They are the same server & domain, so it shouldn't be DNS or a server crash. Or is phpBB.com running & my computer not seeing it (like many times before)?

You're 0 for 3 today on getting things right Jelly ;) They are not the same server.

But whats the problem with http://www.phpbb.com" target="_blank ? Is it a dns problem? Server down? Routing problem?

I could have figured that out from #phpBB. :oops:

I am pretty sure that the problem with the main site is a routing problem. Normally, I have 17 "hops" to get there. Today, the 16th times out.

Last update I heard from the Group was that 'we are in the blue.' We are waiting for Frank (ffiengol) to come on and notice the downtime.
