Site unavailable

Post by FTP-ashario » Mon Sep 28, 2015 10:25 am

Looks like the server has some sort of rogue process running and taking up 99%+ of resources.

I am working with my hosting company to identify and remove the problem.

Until then, the site is large unavailable (even I cannot reliably connect to it to fix the problem).

Apologies, hopefully things will be fixed soon

Unfortunately, the server has been infiltrated by a process that spawns child processes that consume 100% of CPU resources.

'botnets' are notoriously difficult to remove completely. I have managed to limit the resources these processes consume, but haven't been able to remove them completely.

I have brought forward the plan to migrate to a new server. This will hopefully be completed over the next week.
