Discourse goes missing

Hi all - a few times in the past week the McNeel discourse forum has gone missing for perhaps a half hour at a time, from the Seattle office at least. Just an error message shows up- ‘Page Unavailable’ or something similar.


I was getting the same thing this morning, so I don’t think it is limited to Seattle office.

I was getting the 503 error yesterday around 5pm EST as well. Everything was back within 10 mins. perhaps they were changing something with the discourse servers. @sam may know more.

Something like that was my first thought as well but after 3 in a week, I thought it might be worth asking about.


Sorry, this was our bad. :frowning:

We apologize, it’s up now – we’re still troubleshooting this, but the last one looks like a routing error so far.


We’ve halted all sales as of yesterday so we can make sure our infrastructure is in good shape:


I am very sorry for the outage and we’re also hiring another sysadmin full time, which I’ll post about today on our blog.

OK, great, at least we know… thanks for the update.
