TypePad Status Update

Update - July 14, 9 pm PDT

We've now restored all user data. If you are still experiencing any issues, please open a support ticket.

We apologize for the interruption in service that occurred during most of the day on July 12, 2006. We experienced a database problem and needed to take the system offline to repair it.

Weblogs were never down, and the application came back up about 7:30 pm PDT.

If you made any changes to your weblog during the period 12:30 am to 10:30 am PDT, while the application was available intermittently before we took it down, you may need to take steps to restore those posts from your archives.

This does not affect all users, but only those who posted between 12:30 am and 10:30 am. If you did not make any changes to your weblog between 12:30 am and 10:30 am on July 12th, your weblog content will not be affected by the application downtime.

If you did post during this period, these posts are not available inside of TypePad. However, they have not been completely lost and can still be found on your weblog individual archives. We've written a knowledge base article, Restoring posts from July 12, 2006 service outage to explain how you can restore these posts and their images.

If you have any questions or experience any additional problems, please log in to your account and open a help ticket. Our Support team will be glad to help you.
