Forum OpenACS Q&A: Philg site down?

Posted by Bruno Mattarollo on
Does anyone knows why the site from Philip Greenspun is down? I have
tryied to connect yesterday and today, always get "Connection
Refused"... IIRC it was running on the same machines as, is
that still correct? Since is still up ... just asking.

It's not running on the same machine as, that was a misunderstanding.  Last time this happened it was due to the machine crashing and no one at aD having noticed, IIRC.

Philip split off his personal domains from those of ArsDigita and a while back. Originally, his site was intermingled with and lived on the same machine.

According to the Netcraft What's That Site Running? service, is now running on AOLserver 3.3.1+ad13/Linux while is still at AOLserver 3.2+ad12/Solaris.

The two machines are one IP address apart, so they're probably in the same co-lo facility.

I don't know why the site was down; is working fine from my machine though (Sat 12:25 P.M. PST).

to clear up the confusion.

specifically is running on a sun e450 at the focal commuication colo facility in cambridge. is being served off that box. As a result of his lawsuit I think he had to move it along with out of aD at least that was what I was asked to do by aD and its counsel. I didn't have to move but it was easy so I did it since it has always been on the same box and I was feeling quite generous. is behind a firewall and for some reason the firewall settings that were working for a long time suddently stopped working. When I looked at the file I corrected the strange entry.

The keepalive software on the same box thought that the server was fine but it was not.

I am not sure why philg doesn't have uptime running for his machien. Or maybe it is because his company doesn't provide such services anymore.
