FINAL UPDATE - 4:23 PM ET - Sites are still up and running. To give you an idea of what happened earlier, we experienced a database outage due to unscheduled maintenance performed by the Rackspace team. We were forced to cutover to our backup databases, which had restored functionality of sites as of about 20 minutes ago.
We will be performing emergency maintenance this evening to restore our primary database servers. The maintenance window for tonight is between 11PM and 1AM ET. During this period of time, websites may be intermittently unavailable for up to one hour.
We appreciate your patience while we worked to resolve the outage this afternoon, and while we continue to work tonight to move back to the primary database servers.
