Sorry about the downtime we had today. I didn't know about it until late this afternoon. After some research I discovered that we had run out of space on our server.

I cleaned some things out and now the server has enough space to work again. I will be working with the admin and mod teams to figure out a way to prevent this from happening again.

Thank you for your patience and I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

just a thought... (which you have probably thought of already)

set up a shell/bash script to run on a cron every night to check disk space and email someone if above 95%?

That is already in discussion in the moderators forums. Thanks for the suggestion though.

I'll bet it was the apache logs - that got me once already too. They grow fast!

It was logs, but not so much the apache logs.

Though they do get big in a hurry.

I agree, you should reboot a few more times. :mrgreen:

...the site was unresponsive yesterday morning (3~6am Eastern). I kept getting the squid timeout page (after a while).


*EDIT* - AND AGAIN when I tried editing this post this morning directly after I posted it. :banghead:

cron and whatever log rotator you prefer. If you're really stuck for space, delete the oldest log archives. What level is your Slicehost VPS out of interest?

Thats ridiculous. You should be able to make changes on your website and have them show up immediately,with no downtime at all. If your web host can't do any better than they are doing now,then its time to start shopping around for a new host.

This topic is incredibly old. I am locking it since there really isn't anything else we can add to it to make it useful.
