It's been many years that boinc's interest is fading out. Read this if you're not convinced.
Personally I suspect the writer of that piece is largely responsible for the decline.

For me, the "Home Page" resolves to www.climateprediction.net and everything of interest is at www.cpdn,org. And www.cpdn.org is down. The link to the real home page seems to resolve to the www.climateprediction.net now, but that is not where my browser wants to go. It wants to go to www.cpdn.org. So perhaps this home page is a fall-back address in the DNS somewhere.

Is Cpdn.org down?
Checking if cpdn.org is down or it is just you...
It's not just you! cpdn.org is down.

You are correct the home page at https://www.climateprediction.net/ is accessible, but all of the sub pages are not accessible from the home page or from the BOINC client or directly from a browser.

Website now back up again. On attempting to update BOINC I get a message saying the project is shut down for maintenance. Nothing has appeared on moderator's email list about what is going on.

CPDN back up though no tasks apart from occasional resends. One oddity on all web pages that Andy is aware of.

WuProp database went offline about 45 minutes ago. Guessing that project is backing up the DB again.

www.cpdn.org is down again.
Email sent to Andy, though I suspect he knows already.

Edit: Both website and servers. (BOINC can't access CPDN either. Testing site and servers are OK.)

Down again.
Seems to be just the website this time. project update to CPDN works normally albeit there is unlikely to be any work till the four testing tasks I am running complete in about 25 days plus however long it takes to process things assuming they complete successfully.

Edit: There may be the very occasional retread.

CPDN web pages back up again. Not sure when Andy is upgrading Server software to version: 1.4 but assuming when that happens it will be down again. No news about what the issue was so whether it stays up again or not is anyone's guess. Still at least one page with a cannot create object error but not an advertised page.

Hi Dave,

Thanks for this. At the moment we are operating the main project only from one server. We are awaiting a new physical server to act as the twin and backup to the main project server. Every day there is a backup of the main database taken, this slows/makes inaccessible the main project website at that time. This will continue unfortunately until the new physical server arrives later this month.

Best wishes,

Andy

WuProp for the 3rd day/night this week now has gone completely off line for at least 6 to 8 hours,
Today's outage started about 2 3/4 to 3 hours ago (23:00 - 23:15 UTC) based on my last task to upload.

It's one of three possibilities: 1) Database crash / restore.... 2) Database back up... 3) a combination of 1 & 2 ???

A forum topic was opened on WuProp about a month ago but yet to hear an official response from a project admin.

Appears WuProp database has possibly crashed again!!!
Warning: mysqli::__construct(): (HY000/2002): Connection refused in /web/sebastien/projects/wuproj_ssl/html/inc/db_conn.inc on line 39
Warning: mysqli::query(): Couldn't fetch mysqli in /web/sebastien/projects/wuproj_ssl/html/inc/db_conn.inc on line 63

Yea, they seem to have problems and when they do come back up there is no mention of what went wrong. My AMD boards are only useful on Milkyway. Their superior DP float does not provide any benefit on Einstein. Asteroids had no OpenCL apps and Numberfield's OpenCL seem to run only on newer AMD cards with UEFI bios. When I asked about the problem, the admin did not know how the controlling XML was generated let alone how to fix it... There was a bad thunderstorm, heavy hail last night and I shut them all off. I may leave them off the whole summer. My nVidia boards run fine on all projects. I really miss SETI.

Yes, bad form in my opinion not to inform your volunteer crunchers of the reason for project unavailability. Especially when it keeps happening.
