About the 3/25 outage

The blog server was down for at least twelve hours on Saturday. A required Apache server module had been accidentally deleted from the server, and the web server crashed some time after midnight.

I apologize for the inconvenience.

If the blog server goes down again for any extended period of time, you can check the Current Outages list on the OIT Help Desk main page for updates.

You can also subscribe to the new Help Desk Outage RSS feed RSS icon.
