Polishlinux server went down. My admin says there are some hardware problems with it (probably RAM), so don't be surprised if it's not up anytime soon.
Sorry for the inconvenience. I'm frustrated as well.
Gotta run to work.
Cheers,

Latest news:

I set up a backup server. PolishLinux.org now redirects to http://linux.wikidot.com/polishlinux but you can access most of the site's content on http://backup.polishlinux.org

The original server should be up and running in the afternoon, but since it requires data migration (the old server will be probably replaced with a new one) it may be a bit delayed.

We're up :)

OK, I just want to notify you all that we are up and running again. The problem was broken mainboard on our server. It's serviced now, and meanwhile we are using a borrowed server (thanks to Marcin Siedlarz for getting one). All the vortal's functions should work now, so you are free to browse it again Smiling
If you encounter any problems, please submit bugs in Flyspray or just e-mail me personally.
Cheers,
Borys

So you guys host it all

So you guys host it all yourself? Nice job there!

Mentioning broken mainboard kinda scares me. You mean it can actually just happen? Or maybe it is a really really old MB by a bad quality mark (don't say ASRock Sticking out tongue ).

Cheers

Well, we host the services

Well, we host the services on a local technical university. They provide the bandwidth (max 20Mb/s) but we need to take care of the server(s) and the whole configuration and such.

And the mainboard... this was an elderly one. I don't know which manufacturer's (I haven't even seen this machine, my admin-friend takes care of it) but the server was Pentium III 800Mhz with 256 RAM running Slackware. The backup server is similar but with 128 RAM only and running Debian.

If you wanna know more, let me know Smiling

Nice, thanks for the infos.

Nice, thanks for the infos. Smiling

Our sites are hosted on servers located in Texas, as probably thousands of other websites (servers are actually by The Planet corporation which I think also own famous EV1Servers (I might be wrong). It's not really a secret since the ping reveals a theplanet.com subdomain. Eye Some of these servers are probably bought by a local hosting company which then sells space from there to us (again as probably alot of others). Smiling
