this sucks, best of luck to them
i wonder how this will affect ovh’s reputation and as a result potentially change the distribution of hosting loads among existing hosts 🤔
Yeah, that’s a good point. Also, does Lemmy.ml currently host with OVH still, and was the transition to another data center done automatically for you @email@example.com?
We migrated the instance to Digitalocean manually. OVH said that it would take them about a week to get the servers in that location running again. When I checked yesterday, even the admin interface itself was broken. And so far I havent received any direct communication from them, let alone a replacement server.
At least now we know that this instance is properly backed up :)
Maybe I’ll actually make some backups.
Rest in RIP
