      Our hosting company is about to replace the hard drive in the raid array and so there will be some more downtime

      Hopefully we will be back up and running shortly

      The HDD has been replaced now and is currently rebuilding the data

      Hopefully that will be the end of the database crashing now

      We may have more downtime coming up

      Apparently they have replaced the HDD three times since I updated last night and the raid rebuild has continuously failed

      They will keep trying to sort it and will let me know once it has all been completed

      Looks like they are now moving us to another server as they cannot fix the original one raid wise

      Re: Site down

      We have now migrated to a new server, and unfortunately we have lost a few days posts as the back up was taken on Sunday.

      I do have a database backup from Wednesday but the amount of work to restore does not really justify doing this.
