MARS ATTACKS! ON THE SLITHERINE SITE

Post by IainMcNeil » Wed Mar 07, 2012 11:47 am

It's been a night of fighting on the Slitherine's servers, but we came out victorious. After a few hours of panic and trouble, which affected all of Slitherine's ring of sites, all databases are now restored and we are up an running again.

Unfortunately some of the data got lost, as the attack came just before the daily back ups started, so all is reverted to the previous day's back up. All multiplayer and forum posts after midnight of the 5th are unfortunately lost and will need to be replayed or re-posted.

As of now the PBEM system is still offline as we are synching back the over 15GB of data of all players games, so it will take another two or three hours before we can get it back live again.

We are sorry for the inconvenience this may have caused and we understand how frustrating it can be to lose your progress in the games, but we did our best to get everything back to normal as swiftly as possible. And thanks to anybody that worked late (very late) to help us in the fight!

Nothing like what I see elsewhere thankfully, glad it was caught and effectively squashed Ian.

Yes, they have been more active then ever. Or at least their attacks are more visible.
Glad to know everything is ok.
Thanks to everybody who worked late at night to solve this issue.

Sadly I am receiving the login this morning at 6.45am in New Zealand. Has there been another attack? If there has been, do you have a timeline for getting things back up and running?
I appreciate all the work you are doing.
