15 minute outage just now

Hello — we just had an outage for around 15 minutes.

The cause was me running an intensive background system update that, with the site being busy, tipped one of our key servers over.

I’m really sorry about that.

I got the server back up in about 10 minutes and things were back to normal 5 minutes after that. Naturally, I’ll be keeping an eye on things to make sure we’re all good.

Once again, I’m sorry about that, I didn’t realise just how intensive the update was. I’ll reschedule it for running in the wee hours when we’re quieter.

Thanks,

Doug.
