    Outage 21/06/2017

    Sorry for the major site meltdown today. We are back and our apologies for this.

    Some minor software upgrades cause the server to throw a fit. But all back to normal programming now.

    It was a linux kernel update.

    The system (virtual private server) would not reboot after the new kernel was installed.

    I asked the hosting provider to revert to the previous working kernel (we keep the previous 5 kernels available for emergencies like this).

    Sadly they took a long time to change 'default=0' to 'default=1' in the linux grub loader config.
    Annoyed! Because I advised them exactly what was needed.
    We can't make that change ourselves, one of the few things we can't change/fix.

    Again apologies for the long outage.
