UPDATE - Recent Downtime


I'd like to once again apologize for the recent downtime. I have taken the new SQL machine out of production temporarily. This does unfortunately mean that I had to disable some features to allow the old box to handle the load. The following has been disabled:

Guest Search
The "Has this been asked" button
The "dot icon" feature
The members list

I will work as quickly as possible to get the new machine back up, but I wanted to return the stability to the site and this was the only way I could do that. Thanks for understanding. If you have any questions or concerns let me know.

jeremy,

There is no need to appologize. This site kicks butt. You do a good job running it.

Again, no need to appologize. Thanks for the great site

Peace,
Whitehat

would this have possibly messed up the searching? I have noticed my search for things like "x11 ssh" titles and posts comes up with no results. That seems weird to me. I hope its all in my head.

LinuxQuestions.org Technology

For those of us who simply go "GA-GA!!!" at open-source technology and its uses, perhaps you can take a few moments to tell the fans what LinuxQuestions actually runs on and the technology being used...?

I keep saying I am going to get some official docs about this up, but I never get the chance. We use the following projects heavily: PHP, MySQL, apache, thttpd. We really do take advantage of the open source nature of these as we run a modified apache, PHP and thttpd.

Just a heads up - I will be doing this shortly. Downtime should be minimal.

8 min 7.96 sec of downtime and we now get "Displaying Topics 1 to 25 of 208" for "x11 ssh" which is much more in line with what I would expect. This will hopefully be the last downtime until I migrate the db back to the new box (no ETA for that as I am still diagnosing the problem).

great job, great site, great root, thanks.
My doctor says I can afford "8 min 7.96 sec of downtime" without my LQ dose, even a whole day if it's needed to restore the site. .

BTW, I also have a hammer, I show it to my computer when something doesn't want to run and it works.

I thought something ''really'' bad had happen, like being shut because of a fellony of some kind (?) going on , or even being taken by nasty hackers , i remember thinking that no matter what was going on, it had to be big news , i even looked on cnn that day to check, well what do you know ? sometimes one can get really paranoid . Anyways i would like to express that this site really rocks , great job indeed jeremy
