Server Problems At The Planet

Posted on by Frank Haywood

Just a quick post now my server is back up.

You may have read about problems at The Planet data center, but just in case you haven’t, you can find out what happened below.

The explosion took out 3 walls and was caused by a short in a transformer. Fortunately, no-one was hurt.

Update: The server seems to be responding extremely slowly on port 80, while all other ports are operating at full speed, so I’m not sure what’s going on there. Time will tell…

  1. Frank,

    Have you been happy with the hosting service you’re using (other than the explosion. haaa). I’m ready to get a WordPress blog, and the price seems very reasonable.

    Thank you

    Yes. A couple of people have said they’ve had problems with sites hosted at The Planet, one even said he lived in Texas and thought my sites were slow. But I find that largely, from here in the UK, it’s been very reasonable.

    After my server came back up the other day it was *very* slow at presenting web pages, but as I have a dedicated server I was able to restart Apache after having a bit of a think and realising that might be the problem. Things then returned to normal.
