Sorry about the downtime, the router/webserver the forum resides on had a double whammy hard drive failure (again) and a PSU failure. I need to stop buying refurb drives I guess and second hand PSUs.

The server was upgraded from Fedora 18 to Fedora 20 which was 17 hours of pain in the ass debugging. I don't recommend anyone use Fedora for anything anymore, the devs have become so out of touch with reality that it's appalling. It took a further several weeks to debug bizarre permissions issues when migrating the old files over, which is why the websites weren't working.

The rebuilt router/webserver has a shiny new 400W CoolerMaster PSU and two Seagate Barracuda drives in Software RAID1 (because Fedora 20 vomits on any type of hardware RAID.)

Not that anyone reads this, but the recent downtime was because a failed upgrade from Fedora 20 to Fedora 22 that botched everything.

This time it took about 20 hours of hair pulling to get the router up and working again. I still don't recommend fedora to anyone for the same reasons above (idiot developers), but I didn't have a choice as porting all of my custom scripts to a different distro would take weeks.
