PCA Web Site Crashed

Recommended Posts

I thought this was kinda funny. I went to the PCA website today to get some information about Porsche Parade, and here was the response:


The Porsche Club of America web server suffered a severe hardware failure on Tuesday night, April 14 2009, and will be down for an extended period. Please bear with us as we work to restore service as soon as possible.

If you wish to contact the PCA National Office, please email admin@pca.org or call 703-321-2111 during East Coast business hours.

Here's the full story:

To all PCA webmasters and Presidents,

The current pca.org hardware suffered a major failure Tuesday night (4/14) at 7:50pm CDT. We have spent several hours with vendor support and have come to the conclusion that the machine cannot be quickly repaired. As a result, pca.org and about 100 regions, zones, and Parade hosting are down.

We already had a transition plan to move to new server hardware purchased last year. The equipment is configured and mostly ready to go, and will be the basis of our recovery plan. We have web site backups from Monday night and are restoring them now. These are huge and will take many hours just to copy. Database backups will be restored from Sunday night.

We hope to have 95% of regions/zones/Parade back up within another 24 hours. A few will take longer but this should be a minimal problem overall.

We do not plan to resurrect the original pca.org web site at this point. We are 99% finished with the new site and will bring it up ahead of plans; stay tuned for a club-wide email regarding your new login password for pca.org.
