YaDDNet Outage (accidental)

John Pumford-Green

Hello all,

I was remotely correcting the database errors that Rich highlighted earlier by remotely connecting to the YaDDNet server. While I was logged in I took the opportunity to do a package update/upgrade, and afterwards - to test the auto-start script for the YaDDNEt processes - I intended to reboot the Virtual Server.

Sadly, I messed up and told it to shutdown instead.

the difference in command is small!

"shutdown -r now"

(shutdown and reboot)


"shutdown -h now"

(shutdown and halt)

I'm hoping Alan can have it restarted soon.

Sorry again,
