So I woke up this morning to find that my site was down. For that I apologize to anyone trying to access it.
I contacted my host to find that my entire server, and everyone on it, was down. Instead of redirecting to another page that had a generic message like, “We are sorry for the inconvenience but we are having technical issues right now. Please try again later.”, I got a time out message from my browser. When I inquired about this with support I was told that “we don’t have things installed that way”, which had little relevance to my complaint – its simply a matter of having the DNS forward to a static server. So I was forwarded to the “Manager’s” queue 11 hours ago and have yet to hear anything. I don’t really expect to – the last time I had an issue I never heard anything either.
For anyone trying to get to my site over the past 20 hours, I am sorry for any delay and I wish I could tell you it wouldn’t happen again.
Can anyone recommend a GOOD host that will support at least PHP and Ruby on Rails? Java too would be nice but I know that is pushing it…
