Not sure what caused it, but got Server Matrix to reboot the server as I couldn't access it myself.

Hopefully X-istence will find some time to review the logs and find out the cause so we can stop it from happening again.

Ironic that some user kept asking about d.o.s. attacks last night, then the whole morning dns.

Seems /var was filled up with all the logs.

IMHO the partioning wasn't done that well, and i have to keep finding ways to stop what is the natural way of working from killing the server.

My brother was playing Black Jack in the arcade, he beat Lee's high score, then went to submit it and nothing happened. We soon figured out that the site was down. He was upset that he couldn't submit it since he had been playing for an hour to beat the high. Oh well too bad for him! :p :D

Glad that things are up and running again!

Haha... he's not very experienced with cards. He did get 6100 though.

Sorry for the hijack. :)
Dude you're 1 and 10 on peanut footy, well myself I hate card games, the score is very low I really made 3000$ profit neways.

So X-Istence, what was done wrong with the partitioning?


And can it be corrected?

/var where the logs are stored is 900 MB, now this would normally not be a problem, unless you have a high traffic server, as everything gets stored there, that has to do with the server.

Note: that does not include the 500 MB Apache log files that also get generated.

I would personally have made it at least 5 GB's to leave plenty of room.

Its a pain to work around, as it kills what FreeBSD is known for. The hierarchy of where everything is. But its better than having it go down.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
