I haven't been regularly checking, but every time I checked, cPanel and the website were up and running. I didn't encounter a period of downtime, but then again, I wasn't checking all the time.

A majority of them have been linked to hacking, we'll see if the server fairs up to that.

Yeah, I think we need to have a chat about his reseller.....

How stably is the server running for you guys now? I've stopped getting emails saying HTTPd is crashing.

Thanks.

I've stopped getting downtime e-mails from Pingdom now. And they stopped at 1am Aus time.

I would not be surprised if Cohen comes on in the next few days and says that H4P is shutting down forever. This is getting more and more intolerable and I think I speak for more than myself here.

That won't be happen and I won't let that happen. We have a strong community and a great sponsor. We have ups and downs and this is a down moment for us.... we are working to get it fixed... and because we are a free service, although we moderate what signups occur, we cannot moderate it completely like a paid service.... when it comes to free stuff, people will put anything on their website. With a paid service, they have a reason and a purpose and are paying to have their website online..... while host 4 post is like that, it is a different situation.

The reason for H4P being offline now is that the node is having issues where the two RAID drive for VZData have fallen out of sync - and because of this, the server won't boot.

The datacentre are rebuilding the drives now so that they are mirrored perfectly again, and the system will boot up.

Thanks,

Okay, thank you for fixing Issue #5. Now how much longer until Issue #6 shows up?

Seriously, I think I'm not the only one getting a little annoyed that issue after issue have suddenly started to pile up. :/ It's been a week now and the downtime hasn't gotten any better. While we've been fixing issues, more show up.

Look, as I said. We are a free service and these things happens. Unfortunately technology does fail us at times and we have to deal with these things. If you paid for a service..... with a paid hosting service, I could understand how annoyed you may be, but some of you are not paying for a service, so you need to understand that these things will happen. Generally this doesn't happen and we don't want these things to happen, however they do happen.

Exactly, it can be annoying with server management and I get frustrated when these things happen, however there is nothing that we can do about it and it great to hear that Leyton is reporting back to us with all the news.

So, We have established that:

-Host4Post WILL NOT be closing down
-They are working on it (these things take time)
-Host4Post is a FREE Service (Unless you have the unlimited packages)

Now, I understand that this is the last thing you want to read, and in that case, Read no further... But:
All servers have downtime. All of them. Nothing you can do about it. You can sit here, and bitch, OR, you could be doing something constrictive (Building your website further).

I, Like Cohen, and Leyton, DO NOT come here to explain the same thing, over and over again. I get it, your webpage is down. and you are upset, but that is no reason to have a flinging match with the staff making wild assumptions such as the one here:

Its upsetting to see that you've all lost faith in your host. I am sure Cohen and Leyton fully agree with me.

I understand, Cohen. I'm eternally grateful to have this service provided for free, and I shouldn't be complaining about probably the one time since I've had my account on here that the server has decided to not cooperate. I'm just expressing my concern that so many issues arose at the same exact time, though.

I do not expect H4P to shut down from this one incident, and I'm grateful for your hard work, Cohen and Leyton. I'm just shocked to hear so many things go wrong at once, and I'm a little hesitant to believe we've got it made in the shade now. I apologize if I insulted anyone or H4P's services; I was just a little annoyed that the server wanted to shove every one of these problems at us at once.

Well its better to have things go all at once.... then have them fail once and then weeks later something else fail.....

I concur with Cohen. If everything fails at once, Then we should have a decent uptime, after all this
