5-31-2012 Unexpected downtime
Tonight we have been confronted with an unexpected downtime (17:20 – 18:50 HT time) because of a firewall problem. Because of the very same problem we were also unable to stop the transfer market and therefore we are unfortunately not able to extend any transfers that ended during the time the site was unavailable. We are very sorry for the consequences this may have for the affected managers.
Update 19:00: We managed to extend the transfers of the last few minutes of the downtime as they had not finished yet. Transfers with a deadline between 18:47 and 19:15 have been extended by half an hour.
Update 19:37: The site went down again at 19:07 until 19:36 HT time. We have immediately stopped the transfers (from 19:31:52 onwards) when we were able to and will not restart them before we have ensured we are good to go.
Update 19:50: Right now we have strong suspicions pointing towards us having been confronted with DDoS attacks.
Update 21:50: We were down again from around 19:55 to 21:40. Let's hope we can get back to normal again now. For the time being, the transfer engine will remain stopped.
Training updates, youth matches etc have happened just as they should during these problems with the site.
