Just a little curious as to what happened yesterday.

    The forums going down is nothing new, but it did last longer than normal. In fact the site hasn't been down like that in a while, so I couldn't really venture a guess as to what the problem was.

    What piques my curiousity is that connections to port 80 later came back as "Connection Refused", which implies that there is no process on that port.

    The implication is that the webserver itself on board.rpgamer.com was offline, and not just the forums. Which, btw, also explains why the static page of rules at board.rpgamer.com was out.

    I've had numerous problems connecting to the forums over the last 6 months so I just assumed it was a network hiccup.
    So long & thanks for all the fish!

    Not every day you have a board problem that you CAN'T blame on ikonboards.

    Unless the board software itself crashed the webserver, there's something funky going on.

    And here I was hoping that the outage was a vB upgrade in progress tounge2.gif
