Had to reset the server, no we still don't know exactly what's caused it (though we're starting to narrow this one down), wiki is off until server load goes down a bit so I can give it some time to recover.
Looks like these 403 forbidden errors are going to be a daily thing in my opinion. Ah well. At least it's better than the whole server crashing (like what happened the day prior to platinum being released).
403's are definitely not going to be a daily thing. Only a temporary thing.
Temporary for perhaps some portion of this week.
ah, its good to see a message is up.
Hmm, that "The Server if Fixed" thread is gone, so I guess the server isn't fixed yet after all. That, and I can't access Bulbapedia at the moment. Well, I'm sure it will be fixed eventually.
CAn't access BP either....... april fools?
Thats one bloody annoying april fools joke
Check the thread dates, guys. This isn't an April Fools prank.

kids these days have no humour
Long story short....we did an upgrade to the server, boosting our RAM to 16gb from 8gb, and going with Litespeed Enterprise Edition over our Apache. The initial data we were getting there indicated that the problems should be fixed, but we were wrong. We should have more stability and speed now, but it still wasn't enough to make things more manageable.
