The fudforum.org site is finally back on-line after being down for 5 days.

The problem was first reported by David, a Drupal user, on Oct 29, 2009 at 3:28 AM. David was looking for documentation on how to install the Drupal-FUDforum integration module and contacted me to ask what's happening.

A couple of minutes back Ilia reported that:

We've had a faulty ram chip in the machine that caused apache and mysql to keep going into a loop, and made other parts of the system semi-stable. This is why the machine was up, but webserver was down. We've removed it for now, and are waiting for replacement to come-in.


It's good to know that the site makes a difference and that users miss it when it's not available. Thanks to Ilia and team for providing this service to the FUDforum community.
