    surely, it would let people know that its only temporary.
    Actually, no. The 403 forbidden is because the server is refusing to answer anyone going there, totally ignoring any requests. That lets us rapidly drop server load and defuse the situation when it's about to crash. If we had an error page there, it'd get hammered by people constantly hitting refresh, and server load wouldn't drop anywhere near as quick.

    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.

    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.

    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.
