DoG unscheduled downtime
Hey everyone. Sorry about that. Woke up on Saturday to find that the site was offline. Took me until 24 hours later to finally get to the bottom of the problem and end it. The longest outage in DoG history.
The culprit seems to be something on our web host's end with the site's database becoming inaccessible. They likely did something to the server that caused this inadvertently (software upgrade or whatever). They have great support that fixed it for me, no problem. Once i figured out it was a problem on their end not mine it was easy haha.
anyhow, sorry for that. everything should be 'fine' now.
