Arya: Emergency maintenance

1:42PM Apache on this server needs to be updated and restarted urgently. Sites on this server might go offline for up to 5 minutes at a time until maintenance is completed. Apologies for the unavoidable inconvenience.

2:10PM Maintenance has completed successfully




Baratheon: error

Baratheon is currently experiencing a problem, with some sites not loading.
We are investigating.

I have found a temporary fix, until cPanel can provide a fix or patch for the problem.

My “temporary” fix appears to be the only fix for this, until Comodo sorts their problem out. Response from cPanel support:


I can see you've already corrected this issue:

# grep -i stapl /usr/local/apache/conf/includes/pre_virtualhost_global.conf
SSLUseStapling off

Unfortunately, the '' server is currently facing issues, which would prevent SSL sites from being served. You've disabled SSL Stapling properly. Unfortunately, there isn't much else we can do until Comodo investigates why their OCSP server is not responding.

I certainly apologize for the inconvenience. Please let me know if you have anymore questions or issues.

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.
