Strange Outage



We’re back up after a very strange outage. The 500 internal server error was because our .htaccess file was sideways.

What I mean by sideways is that part of a line had been truncated which led to an incorrect htaccess rule and all sorts of error pages thrown up.

Interestingly the only thing happening prior to the first errors was a page edit here in WordPress. I updated my dd-wrt page last night right before the errors started getting tossed up. Is it possible that wordpress 2.6.3 stomped on my htaccess??? Don’t know, but we’re back up now.
