outage and other problems

It looks like the server was rebooted at around 7:15 p.m. EDT, after having a seriously high system load from about 6:45 p.m. to 7:15 p.m. The high system load would have caused very slow performance on our website.

In addition, it appears as though the filesystem that our website is hosted in is mounted ‘read-only’. That means that no changes would have been able to write to disk. So if anyone tried to upload any files, leave a blog comment, or email anyone, it probably would have failed.

I have a support request in to Site5 to see why the filesystem has been mounted as read-only. I’ll let you know as soon as I find anything out.
