Forum Down
« on: September 07, 2011, 10:11:01 pm »
So, what's the deal? Half the day was wasted trying to get my forum to even connect and log on. I had a few people scattered across the globe emailing me wondering if my site was down for good because they couldn't get on either.

I couldn't post in the other thread for whatever reason. So I guess I will ask here. Does that mean this site and or the server was hacked???

It was simply a DDOS attack, you can google it for more information.
All codes I make are tested on the latest version of Google Chrome and upon request of other browsers.

No was not hacked. Denial of service basically means lots of computers send either lots of requests or invalid requests to overload the server.
