Web242 suffered a disk failure earlier today. No data was lost, but we had to swap the disk and rebuild the RAID. The rebuild is ongoing at this time, and disk performance is degraded while it is in progress. Because of this, sites may be slow and your ability to connect to MySQL databases may be impacted.
We will update this post when the rebuild is complete, at which time normal performance should be restored.
2013-03-29 14:50 UTC: The RAID Array has finished rebuilding and service has returned to normal.
