Database server crash

January 08, 2016

Hi everyone,

Last night our database crashed out of the blue, taking parts of the Drupal system with it. Unfortunately not all repair attempts were 100% successful and our backups of the specific components also turned out to be useless.


Caution: upcoming backend tests

Hi everybody,

A word of caution: we're about to test various changes to major backend components as well as to the project database to prepare a general software upgrade of our production system. While these tests won't harm your computer, the project might become unresponsive or even break entirely Innocent Please bear with us until we're back in full effect again.
