We’ve Been Outed!

We’ve Been Outed!

Sorry for the downtime this morning folks. The server went dark about 5:00m AEST and it’s taken us over 5 hours to get it back up. Initially we thought a DDOS attack as we couldn’t find anything wrong ‘under the hood’ in the first few minutes. Apparently not, even though earlier this morning there was a huge influx of activity on the Heritage Medals site, mainly through PHP processes, and it now appears that was the root of the issues that had brought the site down. An update to software overnight had been the culprit, but it took a few hours to hunt down the bug and kill it. We’re watching closely, but all appears to be normal. Thanks heaps for your patience, and we do apologise if the downtime caused you any problems.
