Another Hardware Problem

March 22nd, 2008: Filed under  by Alexander Catapang @ 10:03 pm

One of the servers (not the same one as last week) had another hardware issue today. My hosting provider needed to replace the power supply this time. This server hosts the main web site, so the entire site have been inaccessible for awhile. Total downtime is 37 minutes or so. Not as bad as last week’s problem, but with these recent issues, I really need to think of solutions.

While these issues are unavoidable (especially hardware problems), I think it can be improved to lessen the total downtime (or none at all). Not an easy task, as this requires multiple servers (that costs time and money to put into action), but I’m adding this in my list of things to prepare for. Anyway, the server is now back online.
