Problems with Event Espresso servers

One of our database servers had emergency work done on it by our upstream provider and has not yet been resolved.  We are working to get that back up.  While underway performance of our website is intermittent.

While this emergency work is being done the following actions will not be possible on our website:

  • logging in
  • posting to the forums
  • purchases

There may be other issues as well.  We are working hard on trying to get things back up as quickly as possible.  Sorry for any inconvenience.

Upstream DNS provider attacks causing site availability problems in some geographical areas.

There is a DDOS attack happening in the Eastern US seaboard right now (see for more details) that is affecting our EventEspresso and EventSmart properties.  If you are having trouble accessing our sites it is because of this attack.  We’re awaiting the progress of engineers working on this stopping this attack.
