P1 - Remote Inbound MySQL Connections Disabled

05 August 2018 - 12:50 PM

We've temporarily disabled remote inbound connections to MySQL on the P1 server. While this won't impact most websites in any way, any user making use of remote MySQL will now see connection errors or refused connections. If you feel part of your website is impacted, please open a support ticket with details on your website, how remote mysql is being used, and any IPs that need to connect to MySQL remotely.


All other servers and services are not impacted by this change.


August 6: Resolved. See reply below.

Degraded performance - P1, S1, S4

19 November 2017 - 02:26 AM

For several hours in the evening of Nov 18, three of our servers experienced high load, degraded performance, and intermittent issues with web requests. We investigated the issues internally for several hours and escalated to several of our software vendors for assistance in locating the root cause. The problem was caused by a network health metric we were previously not monitoring. At this time, all servers are working normally and the outage is resolved.


Event start time: 7:28pm ET | Nov 18

Resolved time: 1:11am ET | Nov 19

Impacted servers: P1, S1, S4



Additional details may be available at a later time. The staff who have more technical details are currently getting some much needed sleep.


We apologize for any inconvenience the outage may have caused and appreciate the patience and reports so many of you shared with us. As always, please feel free to ask any general questions here. If your question is specific to your account, please direct it to our support department by email or ticket.
