The PriceMe website unfortunately had a 35 minutes outage yesterday. The problem was caused by an issue with the database, which first made it impossible to visit the product pages as all requests where redirected to the search pages. We then had to take the website down for around 35 minutes in order to restore the database.
The daily deals newsletter that we send out daily at 12:15PM was also affected. The content of the newsletter was empty. This is very unfortunate and we have taken measures to prevent this issue from occurring again.
We aplologise for the inconvenience caused.
The PriceMe Team
PriceMe has experienced some problems with the server lately (as you might have noticed). The traffic on the website and the amount of information displayed have increased significantly lately, which caused increased load on our server. PriceMe had ‘only’ 95% uptime the past week, and there was not enough memory availabe for search at times. This is not acceptable and we would like to apologize for the inconvenience caused.
The PriceMe development team has now resolved the performance problems, and the website should be running as normal from today. A postive side effect of the changes we have made is that performance has improved. Search is faster than before and browsing the catalog pages should be at least 25% faster.
