I am still able to access so obviously you didn’t block the right IPs.

Looks like it was some type of DDoS attack.

The host could not stop it, but once they gave me some IP addresses, I was able to stop it.... Now there is some extra security MODs enabled on the main server to hopefully prevent this in the future.

F'n Chinese! LOL!

Who from Hong Kong is using the site to undermine Beijing?

Either that, or President Xi is a BADger fan, being a communist and all.

Another DOS attack again today. Looks like it's from China again. Host is looking for the culprit.

That happens to me once in a while too. No idea why. Might be minutes, might be an hour before it works again.

There is NOTHING I can do about GPL loading on Wifi... That is likely a wifi / connection problem on your end. Nothing to do with anything here.

That was my guess too. Just was weird cuz I could get all my apps and other sites to load just fine on WiFi but GPL kept timing out.

Did you restart your WiFi? Sometimes that works for me (especially if other sites also don’t work).
Clearing my cache also has fixed the problem in the past.

Who do you have for your carrier?

I blocked a bunch of IP addresses yesterday when the site was under attack. I may have blocked yours. What is the IP on your home IP?

In the coming day(s), GPL could be down for a few hours. I need to have the server operating system software upgraded. The version we are currently on will no longer be supported in November. So I figured this is a good time to get it all up to date. Hopefully we come through on the other side!

My provider will need to backup the entire site in order to do the update. So I will shut down the board before they do this. This will give us a frozen point in time that they can get it all updated. Then once we are ready to go, I can turn the site back on.

How long will we be down?

Who knows... It could be a few hours or a few days. It all depends on how fast my provider can do all the steps they need to do.

Okay.... The server software update is done. It appears to be up and running okay.

I did get a few weird errors when I first loaded the main WordPress site, but a refresh seemed to fix things.
