Is the website under attack?
 
I noticed the last few days the website is often unaccessible for many hours, sometimes more than half day.
Are you under some attack?

unfortunately this website is often down. I don't know why but it is very unreliable.

Re: Is the website under attack?
 
I've wondered that myself. .... Lately, the server will answer pings, but be extremely slow to feed out page request or not answer at all. The ping proves the hosting server is up & running.



However, this could be caused by a very overloaded server serving several high volume websites. ....


Or, overload intrenet connection ...


Or, a malfunctioning webserver or machine causing hangs or other problems ...


Or, planed DOS attacks causing the first two listed overloads.


Bananas.org is hosted by Rackspace.net in Texas. Obviously they host several other Domains & websites.

I was not able to connect for a few days.
And some of my messages went astray.

The backdoor is wide open!

I'm not sure who exactly runs this website (is it Gabe?) but I can help troubleshoot and bring stability back if needed.

I'm in the IT industry and have experience with websites, hosting providers, and registrars.

Feel free to PM me so I can help.

In the meantime, you can utilize a service (free) that will send you email or SMS if the website is unreachable so you know immediately:

I use this to track many of my sites and it's free!

Bananas.org is owned and run by Meadihound. He can be messaged though the Facebook page for Bananans.org. He doesn't keep a constant check on the website and relies on notice of any problem by post on Facebook.



I think the problems has a lot more to do with the hosting service and their overloading the bandwidth. A traceroute show Bananans.org is hoisted on rackspace.net and traffic is though 5 of their routers before the server. So rackspace is a large network and/or hosting service. ... And, yes DOS attacks could be a large part of the problem. But I suspect the problem is more of an overloaded network and may be a miss configured router.


We would need remote access to the Bananas.org server to test this. But the result would be a complaint to the hoisting service/network operator.



Thanks for the above link. I can use that with my servers.
