I guess I’ve been too busy (bad sysadmin, me)

This morning I went to update some things on my page and I found the web server had crashed. How long had it been down? I have been logging in regularly, but never thought to check that the web server had crashed since that has happened only a few times over the years. Looking at the logs it’s been down since December 10th at about 5PM. Apologies to anyone who was trying to access it. I guess I need to put something in place to alert me when that happens.

Nicole just reminded me that the time it went down is the time we had the power outage. So that just means that I need make it start automatically when the system reboots. I feel slightly better about it but not completely.
