well server is back up now. had to put in new drive add all the base software and then restore data.

still a few hiccups left I am dealing with. Should all be resolved soon.

I am hoping this will solve the other issue where the site hangs up every night. If not I have another server I am preparing for a full move to if it continues.

hmm, good idea Tulatin but not really feasible as the entire site is on its own server and if the server is down for repairs then there is really now way to have a temp page........

well that is a problem but todays issue was UNEXPECTED. It was not planned. Server went DOWN would not come back up.

Had to resort to a new hard drive and fresh install then restore the site and its data.

Pain in the ass. Glad it is over.

As for hooking up another box in its place easier said than done. The issue is the DOMAIN name. It resolves to a specific box with specific IP address and changing it takes 24-72 hours (has to propagate through the 13 major doman name servers).

So in essence there would be 26 hours of downtime due to this... was the HDD the cause of all these issues?
