KAG Site down! Anyone know what's up?
« on: March 30, 2011, 12:50:01 »
I get the following message from http://www.kingstongeocaching.com/:

The website you are trying to access is currently offline. The most likely causes are the server is down for maintenance, there may be a network problem, or the site may be experiencing excessive load.

The site uses CloudFlare in order to help keep it online when the server is down by serving cached copies of pages where they are available. Unfortunately, a cached copy of the page you requested is not available, but you may be able to reach other cached pages on the site.


Anyone know what's up?

I get it correctly. Maybe some of us get the correct IP from the DNS.

Here's what I get:

Code: [Select]
C:\Documents and Settings\Christian>nslookup www.kingstongeocaching.com
Server:  dns3.videotron.ca
Address:  24.200.243.189

Non-authoritative answer:
Name:    cf-protected-www.kingstongeocaching.com.cdn.cloudflare.net
Addresses:  199.27.135.87, 199.27.134.87
Aliases:  www.kingstongeocaching.com
          www.kingstongeocaching.com.cdn.cloudflare.net

It's quite possible we're being shuffled around in round-robin mode with a load-balancer. Some will hit the site, some won't.

I was just about to post the same thing.  ;D  I tried hitting the site several times.   The first few attempts gave me the same message as everyone else, then it started working fine.   Symptoms of a load balancer or DNS round-robin config.   They also appear to be using a caching service.

Thanks for the headsup Blue...I'm getting intermittent access too.  I did disable the caching service but that doesn't seem to make a difference.  I've fired off a support ticket.
