PHP/Web server compromised

We're currently experiencing security related problems on the server zooropa, and may be taking services up and down as we try to fix it.

Thank you for your patience.

System upgrade

Zooropa has now been upgraded to sarge, the current Debian stable.

This may have hampered the perl modules installed as well as the mysql server - but things should be in order now.

More info on change of IPs

Tuesday evening we will be switching IPs on Zooropa - this means that those of you who manage DNS yourselves will have to update DNS to point to the new IP.

Change the IPs from --> to:

  213.189.19.173 --> 213.189.23.173 
  213.189.19.178 --> 213.189.23.178
  213.189.19.179 --> 213.189.23.179 

those of you who have DNS managed by us don't have to change anything. If you'd like, we can start managing DNS for all your domains, but the DNS switch to us should be done by Monday to make sure everything goes OK. Those of you who manage DNS yourselves will have to make sure that it is updated before Wednesday.

The switch to new IPs will happen at 14:00 CEST, and we expect the entire operation to take about 5 minutes.

Change of IPs

Due to reorganization at the server hosting provider, we have to change our IPs in the 213.189.19.* range. This means that IPs like 213.189.19.173 will from Wednesday be 213.189.23.173, 213.189.19.179 will be 213.189.23.179, and so on.

We apologize for the inconvenience this brings, and will be doing our best to insure that this doesn't cause any extra issues for our customers.

Filesystem issues

We've experienced some problems with a faulty filesystem on Zooropa today, where some errors might have caused noticable problems with for example Zope databases.

The filesystem is consistent now however, and I think we dealt with it in a clean and good way.

If you notice something out of the ordinary, don't hesitate to ask. :)

Slow response times on Zooropa

There was a process on Zooropa yesterday that used an excessive amount of RAM on Zooropa, causing the system to respond slowly. We are working on scripts that will handle situations like this automatically, so it won't happen again.

Downtime on European server

Our European server crashed last night, for unknown reasons. The server was unavailable for about 10 hours, as we had problems reaching the server host.
