    I have spoke to many others who also had the same problem, everything seems working fine now. But for about a good 30 minutes. Everytime I tried refreshing or loading the webpage I got that error or FireFox would time out and the connection would be refused. For me though everything seems back up and working and loading as normal.

    I also spoke to one of the staff members here at WHT who was also having the same issue.

    Yo dog I heard you liked downtime so I put downtime on your downtime so you could downtime while you were doing downtime.

    I wasn't able to access for around the last hour or so there, the page either didn't load or a 500 Internal Server Error. I checked both in my browser and using a web-based proxy (which showed the same thing).

    Strange thing is I got a couple of thread notification replies, and also see some posts from when I couldn't get on, so some people seemed to be able to access when I couldn't.

    We've been the subject of a periodic denial of service attack for the past 36 hours. When you are seeing the 500 errors it's related to nginx choking on the traffic until I get it filtered.

    Some legit traffic still makes it's way into the site so things like new post notifications will go out accordingly.

    If it makes anything better or helps you track something down, the site would load but images / CSS were not. CDN issue?

    Your initial request to the site was allowed but subsequent requests were erroring out more than likely. Happens with attacks like this...

    I have only seen them about 2 hours ago for a duration of about 30 minutes. Other than that it has been fine.

    I haven't seen anyone report it yet, however I am getting an issue randomly where the css/image elements fail to load and its just plain text. Upon refresh its working fine.

    That is likely the same thing happening as the 500 errors some people are reporting randomly.

    Currently I am working on keeping traffic in check for our web servers on WHT. We've had a periodic denial of service attack and during a spike in traffic it can overload our backend web servers. Nginx then fails to return a result and errors out. I've been testing with several different configuration changes to find the optimal setup for our environment.
