I've put the redesigned site on the server yesterday. What a headache that was. The site was offline for an hour between 6-7pm (EST), while I searched for the problem. Looked everywhere. It was working fine on my local system, but on the server something seemed just off. The rewrite rules were working but the site returned 'permissions denied'. Turned out to be a directory read permissions problem under the file system (not httpd.conf). I was looking in all the wrong places.

All links/URLs have been changed -- mod_rewrite rules are taking care of the old URLs (hopefully -- still checking the logs). Since IE is known for its brain damage, a few reloads might be required.

There is still some work to do, but for the most part, the base of the site is solid. I'm going for a clean, and minimalistic design.

'DeveloperSide.NET' is now '_Developer[Side].NET' (though in text form it does not do it justice -- so its still 'DeveloperSide.NET')...



'DeveloperSide.NET Web-Server Suite' is now '_Web[Developer] Server Suite' -- in text form I'm leaving it as 'Web-Developer...'



I would change that to '_Web[Developer].NET', but that looks just like a domain name [which I do not own].

The link to the blog is up in the menu.

If anyone notices anything or has suggestions, feel free to post in this thread.

there was a blip of downtime today, but is it just me or did the site get faster after that outage/modification?

I'm not sure how long it was unreachable, but I did notice it -- for about 30 minutes. Though it was the hosting provider that went offline, not devside.net.

And thats only because of kernel updates... Should be over a year and half solid -- for the server, not the site.

And the site should be a little faster after another up2date and reboot. Whenever I get that done...

If the load is any faster, its probably related to the hosting provider rebooting/replacing a router and clearing the tables on it.

Looks like this was the problem...

Network Outage

Network Status: DC1 & DC2-phase2

At approx. 16:40hrs US CDT September 11th, we experienced an outage at Datacenter 1. This issue also affected inbound traffic directed to DC2 phase 2, via the DC1 backbones. This issue has been corrected.

The source of this issue was a misconfiguration of the Fireslayer Dos Mitigation system. After reviewing logs we have discovered that an important safety measure was mistakenly removed from the sytem several days ago. Upon removal of fireslayer from a targeted IP this afternoon, an flawed firewall change was written to the edge routers. This change resulted in all inbound traffic at the DC1 edge to be blocked.

We aplogize to those customers who were affected by this issue. We will be reviewing this issue with the personnel involved. In additon we will be examining and implementing additonal safegaurds to the fireslayer system to prevent this type of issue from occuring in the future.
