For those of you who don’t know, all of my websites and those hosted on my server have been down for the past two days.
Initially I thought that the problem was just a simple matter of an expired domain name, but once that was cleared up, I began encountering a completely separate problem. I have been working to try to resolve it all day, and the technicians at the data center where my server is have done all they can to help. Initially we thought it was a simple connection problem and the server was power-cycled. With some more work I was finally able to log in via SSH but still couldn’t get into cpanel or connect via ftp. The problem may be worse than we realized, and the user accounts may be lost. I’m hoping that there’s some sort of mixup and everything can be put back to normal, but just in case we have to rebuild, everyone should get together what they do have and be prepared to set their sites back up again. I do not expect another message from them tonight, as it is midnight on a Sunday(here anyway). If this problem cannot be resolved promptly, I may have to buy a new server somewhere else. I am still hoping that we can restore everything on the server and get everything back up, but I am letting everyone know what is going on.
I apologize to all of my hostees for this inconvenience. I assure you that I am doing everything that I can to resolve this, and I will try to make it up to you all when we are back up.
