Dhmmawheel was down the whole morning here

Postby Annapurna » Tue Jan 26, 2010 12:03 pm

Just wanted to tell you guys that I couldn't access neither Dhammawheel nor Dharmawheel from 8 to almost 12 pm European time.

I could access all other fora and everything else.

I was quite alerted, needless to say.

Any idea what was wrong?

Ty,

Nothing was wrong. Unstable, unreliable conditions were behaving according to their expected nature.

Ah. I'm glad the site didn't hacked. I thought it may be valuable information, since before E sangha went down, it had short prior disappearances too.

I'm no computer specialist, so pardon my ignorance...

Greetings Annabel,

I believe the server was being rebooted. If you're a member of "Dhamma Wheel on Facebook" on Facebook, then there was a link posted to the hosting provider's run-sheet of events.

We endeavour to use that group as an information source if/when Dhamma Wheel or Dharma Wheel are ever down for decent amounts of time, so as to keep members informed.

Metta,
Retro. :)

It seems Dharmawheel is down now, I keep getting a general error message.

:anjali:
The heart of the path is SO simple. No need for long explanations. Give up clinging to love and hate, just rest with things as they are. That is all I do in my own practice. Do not try to become anything. Do not make yourself into anything. Do not be a meditator. Do not become enlightened. When you sit, let it be. When you walk, let it be. Grasp at nothing. Resist nothing. Of course, there are dozens of meditation techniques to develop samadhi and many kinds of vipassana. But it all comes back to this - just let it all be. Step over here where it is cool, out of the battle. - Ajahn Chah

lol sorry i was talking about the sister site DHARMAwheel. The little r next to the m does make it hard to read differently.

Yes, it was the server being rebooted. Here are links to updates:

And if you don't bookmark this and can't get here in the future when DW is down, go to the facebook group page:

You don't need to be a member of facebook to see the wall posts or links.
