In case you hadn’t noticed, OCModShop (and all its sister sites) were unreachable at about 5:30 PST.
Apparently the DNS servers I go through went down… all of them.
So, since the servers were down anyway, I took it upon myself to mount the servers properly in their rack. I had been piling servers on top of each other while I experimented with a few things… and it had gotten very messy.
Some of the servers didn’t have rails, because I lacked the screws to attach them properly… so I went off to the hardware store.
I took my time and installed the servers right, and even routed power and network cables in a semi-neat way and tied them down.
I still have a goofy network config, so things aren’t segmented the way they should be. It took a few hours but I finally got everything working. I was able to finally ping my servers (a few hours prior the domain wouldn’t even resolve to an IP address). Then I got my home network up and seeing the Internet.
So, in case you care… that is the reason OCMS was down… again. I’m going to move to a more reliable DNS server tomorrow.
