The server was down for quite some time earlier today. I'm sure Andy will explain later, but from what I could tell, it was an Abyss problem (Considering everything other than HTTP was working).

Someone restarted the server though and all is back to normal now.

It's back online. I think Andy was performing server upgrades cause of the less space on the FTP server.

Ah the 500Gb external has been installed hence downtime :)
OVH shut the server down.

The HTTP server was down some time before though (it went down about 4 hours ago), but the rest of the server was still functioning.

I'm guessing the server got rebooted because of the new space, and that's why BA is back before Andy is back ;)

Andy didn't. Looks like OVH (the company he rents the server from) did, when they were installing the new hard drive ;)

The server restart was due to the USB disk being installed. They had to turn on USB in the BIOS since its disabled by default on all servers.

The server is totally automated to come back online in the event it is restarted. There is no human intervention required except doing the initial reboot.

I dont see why disable USB - it cant be a security issue can it? At a lot of the companies I worked at, they didn't (including MS (maybe thats how some things leak....))

Most likely a compatibility issue for Linux servers - who knows. All servers have it disabled by default in the data center.

I'm guessing it's a performance thing - freeing up IRQ and DMA ranges (kind of like disabling the serial and parallel ports on a computer, I do it every time).
