Unscheduled Server Downtimeallynfolksjr
Over the past few days you might have had difficulty accessing calcg.org and other associated domains. We had multiple drive failures and were forced to reinstall from backups on two different occasions within a 24 hour period. The raid controller was shifted to a new scheme to avoid the error-throwing drives, and we should have the problem under control. We apologize for any inconvenience you might have had. On a positive note, the server was upgraded to Fedora x86_64 from running 32-bit previously. Be sure to thank Barrett for making multiple trips to the datacenter over the past few days trying to get this straightened out.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us on IRC.

Re: Unscheduled Server DowntimeBarrett
Yes, be sure to thank me. But also be sure to blame me for not keeping more recent backups of the database.

Shame on you B, so how much did we lose?

It is much easier to suggest solutions when you know nothing about the problem.

Re: Unscheduled Server DowntimeNecrofear
You should have used CentOS, given the longer support cycles (7 years). Plus, not everything is bleeding edge, which is a plus for a server.

After disabling SELinux, the setup would have been the same amount of work.

Even if they did, it wouldn't prevent drive failures.

Re: Unscheduled Server Downtimeallynfolksjr
Exactly.
You might have also noticed a brief downtime a few days ago. We upgraded from 4GB to 12GB of RAM.

Re: Unscheduled Server DowntimeZachary940
Nice 12 Gigs of RAM. What is the max the mother board can take?

Re: Unscheduled Server Downtimeallynfolksjr
Unsure. My guess is at least 16GB.
