Got word that the building got hit by lightning. All power and fiber lines are down. Two portable generators are in route as is the utility company. The fiber to the building is down in multiple places due to bad storms, we have fiber crews out working it.

Glad you guys are working on this! I was planning on making some changes to our business website this morning but guess I can't until things are back up.

We are going through the servers that are still down, some of which did not power up or on disk check.

My site is on Matra and just received this message from a site I manage there, a global membership site:

 

"Got a message just now from a member that they sent a prospect to our website and they were not able to access. What is linked to our url now is WORSE than nothing. Please let me know you have received this message. Sorry to interrupt your Saturday. "

 

Otherwise, someone else's site is now showing up rather than chenetwork.org ...

Chenetwork.org is currently giving me a 404, so I guess the techs are working on it. :)

It's already been stated that Matra is being inspected. Pain in the rear since I was hoping to push out a new version of Lazarus :|

Well Matra may be up and running but it's got issues. http://carbonize.co.uk/ you get a 404 and if you try to FTP in you get 421 Home directory not available.

 

Can login to cpanel but File Manager says there are no files in my home directory.

The smf forum on our site is not working either. Instead of the correct folders and files in the forum folder /smf/, there are a number of core.???? type files in there. core.10001 for example

God I'm always getting core files from SMF. They are usually created whenever something causes PHP or MySQL to crash.

i have been with TCH for 10 years. TCH is the best. what happened was unexpected and only brings out the best in TCH.

 

and these things do happen in other NOCs as well. I have a couple of servers at theplanet(now softlayer) and my server there was also affected by their power outage (short circuit) which i think is more preventable than a lightning strike. Here is the article on the >1 day power outage at theplanet which my server was a part of:

Matra still having issues. Sent ticket in. My domain and email are still not working.

 

www. orangeshoalsservicedirectory.org

 

I had a similar issue with my forum not working. I checked the error log via cpanel and it turns out that they have changed something on the server so access to my forum was being blocked because it's permissions were set to 777.

I still haven't received email that was sent during the outage (Felucia server). Please post here when all the issues are resolved so I'll know whether or not to submit another support ticket for this. (I've already submitted one and your tech said it should be restored within 24 hours.)

There was no email sent to anyone abotu this (as far as I know) since communication regarding this has mostly been through the forum.

 

Announcements about the outage has also been posted on Facebook & Twitter but not by email.

TCH-Thomas, I wasn't referring to email about the outage, I'm talking about emails sent to me by visitors and members of my website that haven't gone through due to the outage. I'm missing email from about a 12-hour period (estimated). I want to know when everything should be back to normal so if I don't get that email, I'll know to submit another support ticket.

Me -

 

Mail delivery is governed by the MX records in the receiving domain's DNS zone. You can have multiple MX records, and the records can be weighted with "preference" so that certain a certain server can be the primary receiver and other servers can be lower priority machines.

 

So if multiple MX records exist and a mail server is down, then mail delivery goes to the next preferenced server.

 

Typically, mail servers are configured with retry times, so if the mail servers for the recipient domain are unreachable, the mail is flagged for RETRY. The sending server waits a preset amount of time and then attempts delivery again. If the recipient mail exchangers are still not reachable, then the sending server may return the mail to the RETRY queue, again for a configured amount of time subsequent retries may be a longer wait, say 4 hours for example. The number of retries and the time increments between the first and subsequent retries are all configurable within the sending server by the servers adminisrator.

 

Typically, after 12-24 hours of retry if the recipient servers are still not reachable, the sending server will give up and will likely send an undeliverable report to the sender indicating that it could not deliver the email.

 

Bottom line is you should get any mail sent to you whenever you have an email outage.

Since this email did not orginate from our server, I can not tell you. I can only tell you how email should work. I know thats not the answer, but it is the the only one I can give you.

I have lived in this state my entire life and I have never seen storms like this.

 

Appears at one point there were 150K DTE customers without power.

Bill,

 

Thank you for your tireless support and supreme customer support that you have provided and continue to provide for 10+ years now. I know we we not spoken as on late and TCH will always be my first and total choice for hosting. I am not as involved as much as of late but will always promote TCH as the hosting service of choice. Let's chat sometime soon. I hope you still find time for your bikes.
