Any news?

There haven't been any posts in the last 4-5 hours and i had trouble opening pages. Is this the dos attack or maybe even the storm?

A server setting were lost.

Actually everybody who access klboard.ath.cx get linked the the folder /.../html/bb/. But that setting were lost somehow. Everybody got linked to /.../html/ and there is no index.php => Error.

Lost Redirect.

But it's also possible that Darker deleted that redirect to reduce very high server load which could be a result of the attacks.

He will tell us when he is online.

Actually, I just got the "You don't have permission to access / on this server." ;) Then I looked at the terrible godless Phorum and saw it said the board was down for maintenance. I didn't think anything else of it, really.

mmm, there were actually a few ppl (me included) who added the /bb after the usual url (think there was about 5 ppl on the board then ^_^)

there was no attack. The problem was one of my server admins - He did change some global mySQL settings and did deactivate the board to make sure that nobody gets mySQL errors until he is done.

The bad effect was that the deactivation did result in a restore of the old root folder settings which i changed to /bb - means that after he activated the site again the board root was not /bb

VB did copy all files from /bb to the real root folder now which means that this won't happen again.

Sorry about that my - no coffee break for my tech today :P

Well that was quite interesting. I too tried to temporary Phorum.

Status Information:
Update 02.09.03: Should be backup in a few hours ... or maybe one day ;)
Update 03.09.03: Currently optimizing Database ...
BACK ONLINE: www.klboard.ath.cx
sincerly, VB

Our forums are down
Our Forum is currently down for maintenance. It will be available again shortly.
We are sorry for the inconvenience.

Isn't the purpose of that place to be there in case the main board goes down?

Perhaps VB could set it to be functional so that we could at least have some communication with members when this happens again.

i think that board was shut down to stop it getting used when the main board is up.
and if it did go down then it would get activated again???

Every moderator is able to activate that phorum. So actually when the forum is down for longer times the phorum is activated.

anyways, i'm glad we're back up now and yes, please mods reactivate the temp board when needed or at least post there an update so we'll know.
