    I had no access either....
    Ein Leben ist nichts, deine Sprosse sind alles
    Aller Sturm nimmt nichts, weil dein Wurzelgriff zu stark ist
    und endet meine Frist, weiss ich dass du noch da bist
    Gefürchtet von der Zeit, mein Baum, mein Stamm in Ewigkeit

    Skadi Outage

    Looks like the outage was world wide. I couldn't gain access either. The site was down for some reason. Either an attack, equipment failure or maintenance and repairs. Welcome to the wonderful world of computers!

    There was no attack this time. Just a power outage.

    Were we under attack just now? I was unable to reach Skadi for approximately 10 minutes about half an hour ago...

    This was probably just the backup.

    For the forum backup, the database has to be locked for a couple of minutes. While it is locked, one cannot access the forum. I now added a brief info page which informs members that the backup is running. The backup currently starts at 11:00 p.m. EDT/5:00 a.m. CEST because the forum activity is rather low at this time and should normally last no longer than 6 to 7 minutes.

    I'll make the page prettier when I've got a bit more time... we once had a pretty cool page with "Oops! You broke the forum!" and some funny smilies, but I can't find it anymore.

    Found it.

    It's actually a custom template for vBulletin's mySQL error page, but it can be used for the backup as well.
