Server down again this aft Jim?
Seems so the irish were back in the pub or Jim didnt feed the meter again:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:
Our server just had a blip (you may have noticed oh
We have rebooted the server and the site appears to be zipping along now.
We have got an engineer attending to our server this afternoon so it is likely that he weill do a full power cycle restart of the server. If he does the site will disappear again for about 5 minutes.
Sorry about that but hey, ho, these things happen :Rofl1:
It came up again as a database corrupt error Bryan.
But I guess you know that.
"Sorry! This thread is closed!"
And I wanted to ask Bryan where I could get a diamond encrusted waistcoat for me budgie!
No wonder the server blips when hes using his credit card buying one for Arfur:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:
Yep I was in the middle of what sort of brain thinks of a Parrot with the DEWaistcoat too ! Database error !
Jims buying 4 new AA batteries,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, wow the expense he goes to.
Hope the engineers wearing bike clips on his troosers, we dont want them getting caught in the bike chain:shout:
Huggies work for me:Rofl1:
Denial of Service
Sorry Funsters.. Our server is literally under attack. Every couple of hours we are getting massive network traffic hits which cripples us. When this happens we have absolutely no admin access so we are a bit helpless. We may well lose the site a few more times whilst we figure out how to stop the attacks.
Thanks for your patience
These graphics show the network traffic we are receiving. Where our normal traffic results in a load of around 50K, we took 2 hits of over 6MB a second yesterday, and one of 8mbs this morning Why we should be attacked like this is beyond me, I am still not sure what is really going on and I have no idea what people gain from this crap:Angry:
This is a major issue! I had to spend last night watching tele and talking to SWMBO
Do you think this a malicious orchestrated attack Jim.
:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::BigGrin: Lets hope that not too many funsters had an early night. watch out for a baby boom among motorhome owners in the new year
Is there any way of knowing where these hits are coming from Jim, or indeed any way of blocking them ? :Angry:
The server logs will be analysed by an expert today
Sooooooooooooo nice you are back:thumb::BigGrin:
Hopefully it will be easy to identify a pattern and put a block on further attacks. Last time I did an investigation the trails led all over the world - got the b*gg*r in the end though :BigGrin:
Well property ladder was really good last night. :Wink:
I thought I was sad for the ammount of time I spent on computers.
But why would someone attack a server? :Blush:
What is there to be gained?
And are they aware I had a high score on Crypt Raider when they attacked?:Rofl1:
Please explain someone.
I thought Bryan had pulled the plug after some had teased him & his Parrot:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:
