A few days ago we had an outage on this web site that lasted from Monday through Wednesday night. This has – obviously – now been fixed and we are back up and running.
The problem appears to have been a surge from a nearby lightning strike that somehow powered off the server. This was not a power failure and there are no indications of that on any of my UPS systems.
Because I was out of town and this required a physical intervention I was unable to resolve it until Wednesday night. It only took a few minutes once I was able to restart the server.
In any event all is well now.
