[RESOLVED] Windows shared hosting server issue

This morning we were alerted to a problem with a MySQL database server on one of our Windows shared hosting servers.

The problem is affecting the server’s hosting control panel and may also result in some websites relying on this database failing to load correctly.

We are investigating the issue and are working to restore full service as soon as possible.

Update 10:10: The problem has been identified as a corrupt database data file. We are currently working to restore the data from our backups and will update this post with further information as soon as possible.

Update 10:30: All user-accessible databases have now been restored from backup and websites should now be operating normally. At this time the hosting control panel for this server is still down and we are now working to restore this service as soon as possible.

Update 11:40: The hosting control panel service is now operating normally. All services have now been restored. We will continue to monitor the system to ensure everything is operating correctly.

[RESOLVED] Internet Connectivity Issues

Starting at approx 00:30 on 15/04/2020, we’ve detected issues with our internet connectivity to some locations on the Internet. We’ve raised the issue with our upstream network and engineers are currently investigating.

We will update this post as soon as we have more information.

[RESOLVED] Windows shared hosting server issue

Update 11:20am – A failed Windows Update caused the server to go into a reboot loop. This problem has now been resolved and all services are back up and running as normal.

This morning we were alerted to an issue with one of our Windows servers on the shared hosting platform. This issue is affecting all services hosted on that server (Web, email, databases etc).

An engineer is currently on-site at the datacentre working to resolve the issue as soon as possible.

We will update this post as/when more information is available.

[COMPLETE] Emergency Network Maintenance: 29/04/19 @ 20:30 BST

Network maintenance has now been completed.

Early this morning our engineers were alerted to a problem with one of our network routers located at the Newcastle datacentre. Upon investigation it has been determined that this equipment has suffered a failure and requires replacement. Due to our network redundancy, no services have been affected.

We have scheduled emergency maintenance this evening from approximately 20:30 BST. Starting at this time we will begin replacing the router and restoring full network redundancy.

Due to the type of work involved all connectivity services should be considered “at risk” during this period.

If you have any queries, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
