Title: My Fault!
Post by: Xepher on November 15, 2008, 04:10:18 pm
Sorry about the outage last night. I forgot to rotate the log files because of the whole trip to Ireland thing, and /var/log/ ran out of space, causing apache to bork. I've moved everything, and it's working now. Additionally, I finally scripted this to be automatic from here on out. That's something I meant to do over two years ago, but never found the 10 minutes to actually do until now. :-)

Ahh, okay, I was wondering what had happened.  (Not like I really understand the specifics!)  Thanks for fixing it though. :)

I think everyone was wondering, but the slowness is totally understandable! Hope your trip is/was completely awesome and full of indescribable win.

Ah, so that's what happened!
And now it inspired you to make that automatic code. Yay~!

Hee, are you still on your trip? Fixing things on the run! Amazing!

No no, I got back from the trip a few days ago. The thing was I was supposed to rotate the logs at the start of the month, but I was leaving on the trip on the 2nd, so I forgot, and it finally ran out of space last night. In fairness, I actually hadn't done it last month either, because then I saw "eh, it can wait another month, it's got room." But yeah, it should be automated now, and hopefully this won't happen again.
