I know that a lot of you will have noticed that the website has been down. Well actually it hasn’t been down,but the DNS server that tells your web browser where to go to open the website has been down. We think it was a bad power supply but when we replaced it with another one the server went down again a few hours later. Since since that was a used power supply we are still hoping that it is a power supply issue. I installed power supply number three today. If the server goes down again I will have to rebuild the server or move it to a new computer. The end result is that the server has been down since sometime this past weekend and if this last power supply doesn’t fix it could possibly be down for another few days. Hopefully that doesn’t happen and it is fixed as of now. If not please be patient.
If it is down and you need to contact me you can call me at 843-465-6555 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
My company and personal websites as well as all email for them depends on this server also so if it is down all my other infrastructure is down also. Use the above contact info in that case.
Update as of 5/8/12.. we are still experiencing issues with the DNS server. I am going to have to put a new server in. Hopefully that will happen today or tomorrow. Thanks for your patience.
Second update 5/8/12 I have replaced the server. Hopefully this will fix the issue. We weren’t able to determine what was causing it to power off. After replacing the power supply twice we think it is something in the Motherboard/CPU/Memory. I didn’t feel like troubleshooting it any further with the attendant loss of functionality. My company email and websites depend on that server as well as the downeaster yachts website so I have been hurting pretty badly over the last week and a half with it down more than up.
