Since 21.04.17 01:52:34 (GMT +1) the server has been down. The reason for this was a loss of mysql connection with our main sql server. This is hosted with OVH and was most likely due to an error on their behalv.

The reason it took us so long to fix it (Which was a mysql restart and server restart) was due to the fact that I was at a funeral, which took 3 hours to drive too and 3 hours back. I couldn't fix it on mobile and did not have access to a desktop where we went. The other person who would have been able to fix this(Sauron) was in a same situation (currently on holiday with no access to anything). A very unfortunate series of events.

I just got home, and fixed it immediately after discovering the cause. Apologies for any inconvenience!
