We had some problems last night and today with “certbot” - a tool we use on the server to make sure the OGF webpages are secure (“https”). And that also caused problems with our automated emailing from the server, which supports functions like new user sign up, lost password recovery, and replication monitoring (making sure data goes over to the render and to overpass correctly).
I’m sorry I had to shut down the server without much advance notice - I was worried the problem was worse than it was, and so I was trying to solve it quickly.
Thank you to everyone for your patience!
Also, we have reached the $200 / month level with donations supporting our rental fees for our servers. So thank you to all who have been donating.
Happy mapping and happy (northern hemisphere) Fall.
