Web Site Down - More Detail

Sometimes success has its own challenges.

From a technical perspective, the website is running on a MySQL database server and it started reporting "Too Many Connections" early this morning.

I contacted the hosting company Internode who attempted to increase the number of connections then restarted the server. Unfortunately the server did not restart.

Currently Internode is working behind the scenes to fix this problem. I've put up a message on the site to show this outage, but unfortunately some of you will not see that message, instead you'll see a database connection error instead.

As we have information, I'll add it here.

As an interim measure I'll post Control Stop times here as they arrive.
