Update regarding contribs.org outage (Jan 8 - Jan 15 2009)
« on: January 15, 2009, 06:26:25 PM »
Dear community members,

On Thursday 8th of January 2009 around 8am (MST) contribs.org suffered a severe hardware failure. A disk array of our server farm crashed.

The past days we have worked vigorously to try and salvage the disks and their content and restore missing information from backup in order to get contribs.org back online again.

Apart from that we also started reengineering our servers and network architecture to prevent such undesired and long outage of contribs.org from happening again in the future.

Since contribs.org and SME Server are a community driven effort, sponsored by free time and volunteers we would like you to consider a small donation in order to raise the money needed to keep contribs.org stable and running problem free in the future. If you would like to donate you will find the needed information here (when logged in to the forums).

Last but not least we would like to thank you for your patience and hope you will continue to make SME Server such a success.

On behalf of the Contribs.org team
