Title says it all.

Is everything OK now?

This site was apparently down all day. I was able to get back in just a few minutes ago. From the errors I saw (500 Internal server error and one other), my guess is there was a problem with the server.

I want to apologize for the extreme downtime. We may still face a few hiccups because we have a less than ideal fix in place. Several essential web server packages got messed up. In the end two expert software support teams got involved and are still working. I'll update with any relevant updates here. Thanks again for your patience!

When I kept getting those "500 server error" messages, I figured Greg was running 500 laps as penance and that's why it was taking so long. :-p

I knew something went terribly wrong as soon as I saw it and prayed that the site could recover. Those 500 code errors are hard as hell to debug. Like Evo says: Hooray for Greg and the experts behind it! :biggrin:

We need to reboot the server in about an hour. After that we should be in the clear!

Good thing I wasn't around to log into PF on Saturday. Past PF down times have lead me to panic.

I even call Evo once out of panic.

:DD That must have been epic.

"Evo! What happened with the forum?!" :biggrin:

I still can't use the android app. It says "loading" and then suddenly says process has been finished.

Perhaps a case of:

Reflect, repent and reboot - order shall return!
