Alert! From: The Webministry


Unto the Populace of the East Kingdom, Greetings.
This is being sent to notify you of the (Critical) Severity event(s) below. Because of the possible large impact of such events, this is being documented to avoid an increase contact volume.
Tool/Service: Websites Affected:


Additional Services:

All EK Services

Impacted Areas: All Websites on the EK Domain
Description: Ongoing cascading failures on the East Kingdom Server is causing blackouts and brownouts for all services supporting the East Kingdom.

All attempts so far have not recovered the server to a stable situation and the Webministry is focused on moving the websites and services without hesitation and completion of testing. This has become a unavoidable situation.

We have heard from the hosting company and there will be no assistance coming from them. Their review of the situation came up with an unconscionable solution which is not being taken, and with no other possible choices given we will be acting, starting tonight with moving the main site.

Ticket Number: None.
Severity: Critical
Event Start/Finish: 9-18-14 9:30am / On Going
Please Do Not Open Service Tickets For This Issue


Connectivity to all websites has been restored again, however it continues to be spotty.

If you cannot connect on the first try, please attempt to connect again by refreshing the web browser or starting a new instance.

There are 11 websites left to move, and have been problematic during previous attempts. They will be moved with the errors tonight.

we apologize for this inconvenience, and thank you for your understanding during this ongoing issue.

As always, if you have any additional questions; concerns or information regarding the above, or any current events or outages, please do not hesitate to contact the Webministry.

In Service to the Kingdom,

The Webministry

East Kingdom
