We are back online!

There was a severe issue triggered by an update I released Friday at 5PM.

Rather than leaving the office and getting home a little early I decided I should take 10 and fix permissions for a folder on the server that has been giving me some issues.

Long story short, the command I was running to fix the permissions on the app server folder were applied to the entire servers directory which caused a massive failure, locking me out of the server completely, and disabling the server.

This has been a huge learning experience and has resulted in some changes in how we operate, including automated daily backups, and setting up redundant servers to switch to in the event of a system failure.

Please let me know if you have any issues navigating around.


Bro Great Job getting this back up.

The best way to learn is by things like this. It forces us out of our comfort zones.

What sysadmin HASN’T deleted the system from time to time?! Heheh. Awesome job getting it back up so fast, I was worried for a minute this forum was done for. Good on you for pushing out an error message to explain what happened as you were fixing it.
