Major unplanned downtime – sorry

Just checking in to apologise if you couldn’t reach UPCZilla over the last 24 hours. A server misconfiguration, possibly coupled with some kind of DDoS attack, caused our server to completely fail, and as luck would have it nobody noticed for almost a day – seemingly our emergency notification also failed. Sigh…

So it’s back up now, but we really didn’t need that downtime – users don’t like it, Google doesn’t like it. We have changed the configuration now so this shouldn’t happen in future. Apologies once again.
