  • Surfbird Blogs are down

    Hi all,

    I've just tried to update my Belvide blog to find that I can't access the Belvide home page. I've checked the other surbirds blogs to find that they appear to have been all wiped off except for a few. I notice there is a message on the blog header on the home page that access has been denied to one user, which reads (user 'apache'@'localhost' (using password: NO)
    Can someone put the surfbird bloggers in the picture to explain what's going on?

    Cheers Steve

    Hi Steve and all, we had a security compromise and went ahead and changed some database passwords for various areas of the site, which requires reconfiguring how users connect to the database. We will get it back up soon.

      When is it expected to be back up and running?

        Hoping all back on Tues 9th Aug. A laptop got stolen that had some admin passwords on it, so we're being proactive about changing all the admin passwords across the site. Tech guys are looking into updating the blog config file and will have an answer soon.
