Dreamhost Issues

This site hasn’t been accessible for a while this morning. Dreamhost appears to be having some issues with a fileserver that keeps crashing. All seems to be good now, but it sounds like they’ve been through this before. The got the box up once and thought it was stable, until it crashed again a short time later:

Once we got the machine up, fixed and serving files, everything seemed like it was ok, so we went back to making sure all content, data and websites were working normally.

Right about then, it crashed again! This time, however, it came back up correctly, so it didn’t take as long as it had previously.

See the Dreamhost Status Blog and the Unofficial Dreamhost Blog for details. Hopefully this is the end of the issues for now, but who knows.
