Bootgod's NES CartDB site being DoS'ed?

Post by lupin3rd » Thu Jan 03, 2019 3:24 pm

I'm sending him a PM too, but I thought since he frequents this site, someone else may know him or what's going on with the site. Seems like the server is being overwhelmed, but things were looking bad since the error reported that a timeout occurred for a file (and revealed the full Windows filepath to said file).

Anyway, it's probably in my Top 10 favorite sites to visit. Does he have a mirror anywhere, or is anyone else hosting a mirror by chance?

Thanks!

Minor update: Actually, it seems like maybe the database service is off. Seems like everything that would be fetched from the DB is failing to render on the pages. Perhaps that's why there are long load times and timeouts, and no data displaying.

Looks like it's back to normal now.
I don't think it would be too difficult to Bootgod host his site together with NesDev.
Maybe most of these problems could be solved.
Or not, just a suggestion.

Yeah, he really should get a solid host. I always thought the site as it is (which I'm assuming is being hosted on some local private server due to the dyndns address) comes across as a bit... volatile. I'd hate to lose the great collection of data that is stored there, just because the guy currently running it potentially loses interest, or something happens to the server that hosts it.
