Server Boxberg 01Content Delivery NetworkFebruary 14, Wed
We've expected big software problems with one of our servers.
We will try to get everything running fine again.
That means that we have to try some solutions which will cause the working services of this server to fail for short periods of time.
We try to keep the downtime as short as possible.
The most used files of the CDN should be cached by CloudFlare and continue to work while fewer needed files will be unavailable during parts of our maintenance.

We installed some updates and restarted the whole server as well as some services.
It looks solved for now but we don't know if it keeps working.
We'll have a look at it in the next hours and deactivate the warning here if nothing bad happens in the meantime.

There wasn't any further outage within the last two days.
We think the service has fully recovered and do not expect new problems,
We forgot to renew our most important domain.
This means that nearly everything is currently offline and redirects to the home page of Freenom,our registrar.
We already bought the domain again and expect the problem to be solved tomorrow.
You can't do anything else than waiting now.

Unfortunately the people at Freenom haven't seen yet that we already transferred the money for the domain at the morning. We hope that this will be fixed tomorrow but let's be serious... We can't do anything about that now. We can only wait for the domain becoming available again.

The problem is fixed now. Freenom gave us the domain back and everything should work as before. We will try hard to prevent such an issue from happening again. Sorry for the long outage.
Server Frankfurt 01August 23, Wed
Starting at today morning we have big problems with our main server.
The database is down which means that you can't read any articles at YouFail.
Sometimes the webserver is slow and crashes too.
In that case YouFail and the Nikisoft page are completely down.
We hope that the things recover soon.

We managed to get the server back to work.
It has been online for some hours already but we wanted to monitor it a while before we remove the warning.
You shouldn't see an error anymore.
