I just rebooted the server (remotely). It may take upto 30 minutes for it to come back online.

I'll check back in a few minutes.

What's up with meritbadge.org? Although the main page comes up with a cloudflare backup, many of the internal pages come up with error 520 and no cloudflare cached page available.

Seems to trigger a problem every time I try to edit in the new requirements for Boy Scout ranks? I can view the pages fine, but can't edit.

Weelllllllll....... I went to backup the wiki earlier today, but it was down. And, unfortunately, it's down hard... crash-and-burn hard. (FWIW, I have all the "files" backed-up; it's the LAMP stack's database(s) that's crashed.)

  • Power Cycle = No effect.
  • Telnet = Inaccessible.
  • FTP = Inaccessible.
  • cPanel = Inaccessible.
IOW, I'm unable to get anything to/from the server.

The next step is to re-provision (i.e., wipe the drivespace and reload the OS onto) the server and ATTEMPT to restore an old --very old-- backup. (Anything near current would be corrupted.)

OT1H, this could be an opportunity to revive and update the wiki. OTOH, we could just let it R.I.P.... WHAT SAY YOU ALL?

Ok. The wiki is back online.

We are working behind the scenes to (FINALLY!) upgrade the MediaWiki s/w.
