AF death?

01-19-2003, 02:01 AM
Well, as some of you know, AF went down at about 11-12PM EST time today, back up at about 2 am. Can anyone (Igor) tell us what happened? Was it a physical problem beyond your control? Or did the server crash hard core? Or did u take it off to fix it, or worse, was it hacked?

Yeah... what was the deal? :confused:

i was going to make another post about this in OT, but realized that one post about a topic is better then 2. i'm also wondering what happened?? me and Chris were so distraught without it that we were actually forced to talk to each other...on MSN!! :eek: :eek: :D but i'm glad that it's back up. i was worried for a bit...especially the one time when i pressed refresh and it brought up a University of Phoenix website...:confused: :bloated:

Sorry about that the apache log file filled up killing apache, I happen to pop on and see the site was down and fixed the issue and put in a script to rotate the logs every 24 hours so it should not happen again.

Wow! I understand what you said, and I don't think I've seen a log grow that big... we must be pretty damn popular for that to happen:D

:eek: :huh: :huh: :eek: The whaaa what? :confused: :finger:
Im sure if I spent time going deep into computers like I do in street cars and my race car, I'd understand.;)

Apache is THE most popular web server application for use under Linux. 70%+ internet servers use it. What he means is that the log file generated by the program expanded significantly enough to either
A)Fill up the HDD; or
B)Crash apache for some other reason.

Hope that clears it up,
Oz :)
