Default Downtime / Hard Drive Failure

CarForum.net experienced a primary hard drive failure which caused a series of issues that brought CarForum.net down for a few days.

We have now restored our latest backup of the site - which I believe is about 5 hours from the time we crashed. We apologize for this inconvenience. Hardware failures like this are never pretty but we are very happy to be back.

We have moved CarForum.net to a larger server will will be implementing even more frequent backups. This will reduce downtime and data loss if this ever happens again.


Please let us know if you experience any issues.

Thanks,
admin

Hmm, that's no fun. Thanks for getting it back up and running again!

(Also, I think the backup was more than 5 hours old...but oh well, at least we're back up!)

Five hours from the time it crashed (approx 10am on May 20th). No?

Glad we're back. I was a sad panda. What servers do you run for CFN?
