    Message about site being down for almost 24 hours

    Thanks for your patience.

    No need to panic or worry, I know it's been frustrating.

    Nothing to report at the moment.

    We're still looking into it.

    Don't be surprised if there's instability more than usual while we sort stuff out.

    PSU will survive!

    I'm happy it's back up. Though it's part of my 3-fourm roster, I hadn't realized how much I missed PSU until it was actually unavailable. Is this part of the prevalent 404's we've had lately, or something new?

    It looks like we were hacked. There are a couple new banned accounts under the usergroup page.

    This forum has had problems like this for years. I suspect it will never be fully fixed. Don't you guys have some kind of event log debugger? I would have guessed you would have figured this out long ago.

    Hacks are one thing, but it seems to be not completely stable even when it's not being hacked.

    Yes, these forums have had these problems for years, many years, across 3 companies and ownerships. Actually, this year was appearing to be better since it didn't have severe slow downs just before E3 and Gamescom, actually staying up during both, while neogaf went down (but they always go down during conferences).

    There are a few things to consider. Vbulletin has multiple back door vulnerabilities and over these many years, many, many questionable choices have been made for sysadmins. Apparently, it's because there wasn't enough local IT that it was allowed to be administered remotely. This is a very dangerous thing to be doing, if you are taking peoples' character at face value.

    There also seems to be some really tangled set up going on. The site is hosted here:

    http://www.softlayer.com

    the servers are here:

    http://zoneedit.com

    and the registrar is another proxy, which is its own web hosting service:

    http://rebel.com corp

    Why in the world are you not running your own servers with your own network? All this hosting of a host of a host is nothing but trouble. You are at the whims of multiple services and multiple IT's.

    Frankly, the main website is not getting anywhere the traffic IGN or Gamespot or even VG247 is getting, so why pretend some world class system is needed to just run a website and a forum? It doesn't take blade server farms to do these things and then, somebody within the organization could manage it rather than a bunch of remote sysadmins. This will get the usual rebuttal and then back to business as usual.

    Well at least the forum is up and running and we all can get back to what we love GAMING and pissing off the staff, when something goes wrong and we demand it fixed

    First of all im glad that we're back online.
    I hope there's a way to close those backdoors - even if it means additional downtimes, it would be better in the long run.

    Hosting your own servers have enormous costs. I don't know the details of psu's hosting, but typically the name is registered with a company like rebel or godaddy, a service like zone edit provides the DNS entries, and a company like soft layer provide the web servers. I don't know of a host of a host of a host scenario that you talk about, but the three entities you listed are typical of most sites.

    Hold tight. We have a solution to this. The site has been going great since we upgraded in around April/May. Some people have been trying to mess around with us via Vbulletin recently but they'll be a stop to that very shortly and PSU will be a force as we head toward next-gen. Hackers have done us a favour. Thanks xx
