photomacrography.net server crashed briefly on 9/11/2018

Post by rjlittlefield »

Just so you know...

This morning I was not able to reach photomacrography.net by any means. On further checking, I found that it was inaccessible from everywhere in the world, at least as reported by https://www.dotcom-tools.com/website-speed-test.aspx .

I filed a trouble report with our service provider. The site came back up about 20 minutes after my trouble report, followed by a reply from service provider that the operating system kernel on the VPS had apparently crashed so they did a reboot.

This is the first time that we have needed help since we switched over to a VPS in summer 2017, so I'm pretty pleased with how things have gone.

Edited to add: as of right now , www.dotcom-tools.com/website-speed-test.aspx reports "AVG: 2nd VISIT 827.7 ms". So, we're not blindingly fast, but 'tis enough, 'tis enough.
