For the past few hours, Search Engine Watch Forums has been returning a server starter page from Red Hat Linux. It seems like many, if not all, the internal forums, such as the Google forum page are returning 404 not-found server status codes. A true shame to see.
Here is a picture of what I see when I go to SEW Forums:
I was emailed by a few concerned forum members, but I honestly don't know what is up. I suspect it is a server issue. It does not seem like a standard server hack. I think it might be database issues, because when I visited the main home page, I saw an error that read:
Error in page SQL statement
Tried 'SELECT * FROM pages WHERE name='sew_home''
But that is now gone and the home page is working fine.
I hope the forums come back soon, I am sure the team is working on it now.
Forum discussion is unavailable at this moment.
Update: Seems like we are back a couple hours later.
