About the downtime and expired SSL certificates

Posted by prencher Jun 26, 2011 at 18:27 UTC

Hi guys,

We've posted a story on curse.com explaining what happened in the last few days to cause this downtime, and what we're doing to prevent it ever happening again.

Murphy's law being what it is, luck would have it that our SSL certificates for CurseForge and WowAce expired just as the downtime bagan, on June 23rd. Please rest assured there's no security breach, they are simply certificates that expired at about the worst possible time. We will be updating them on Monday, June 27th.

Update June 27th: The SSL certificates have now been updated.

Base Parameters.
RaidFlag.

Projects Marked As Inactive

Posted by Torhal Mar 04, 2011 at 04:52 UTC

The automated process which marked out-of-date projects as inactive after 90 days hasn't functioned in a very long time. It has been fixed, but with the un-intended side-effect of marking as inactive every World of Warcraft project which was released during patch 4.0.1 and 4.0.3 - clearly projects that are still compatible (mostly) and relevant during patch 4.0.6.

Kaelten has undertaken the effort of correcting this, and all erroneously affected projects should have their statuses restored.

Keep in mind that when patch 4.1.x hits the live servers that all projects released under the 4.0.x versions will be eligible for the 90-day inactivity rule.

Ackis Edit: If you're having trouble please take a look at: http://kb.curseforge.com/policy/abandoned-and-inactive-projects/#w-reclaiming-your-abandoned-or-inactive-project

Sorry for the mistake guys/gals.
