Arya: DDOS attack

18:22 The server Arya is current;y experiencing a DDOS attack. Sites hosted on this server will be slow, or will not open at all.

We are working on mitigating the problem.

18:30 The attack has been mitigated for the most part, but we are still seeing occasional spikes in activity.

Emergency maintenance: Arya

UPDATE: The time for maintenance has changed to 17:30 The server will go offline at 17:25

The Hetzner datacentre has informed me that the RAID alarm for the server Arya is currently sounding.

This means that either one of the hard drives has failed and requires replacing, or that something has gone wrong with the RAID configuration.

I have scheduled emergency maintenance for 5PM this afternoon, 25 January 2017.

The server will go offline at 4:55PM and should be offline for no longer than 40 minutes while the technicians work on it.

I will ensure that a full server backup is made before the server goes offline, to ensure that no data is lost.

Your emails will not be affected in any way as they are hosted on a separate mailserver.

Please accept my sincere apologies for any inconvenience this may cause you.
