Maccast Server Issues. Things should be OK now.

Many of you alerted me to the fact that was down this morning. Thank you all for your email. Looks like we started having issues at around 5:30 AM (PDT) today. I am still working with the hosting company to find root cause of the issue, but generally it looks like some process went haywire and was using up more than it’s fair share of the server resources. This caused a chain reaction resulting in the database no longer being accessible which is the state most of you encountered it in. The good news is, everything seems to be fine now and that bad process has been spanked and sent to it’s room.

    I thought you had a dedicated server?

    I do, but it’s “managed” and things can still go wrong. It’s a server after all. ;)
