I'm still learning about the care and feeding of a Manila server. For the most part, it looks after itself, even to the point of rebooting automatically after a crash. If you can't bring up a site on the server, check back in 10-15 minutes and it should be back online.
This wasn't the case earlier this week: A conflict between Microsoft Internet Information Server and Manila caused all sites to be inaccessible for more than a day. I wasn't aware of the problem until I got an e-mail from the publisher of Teardrop Times.
When I begin deleting the inactive weblogs that were never updated after the initial It Worked! post, I expect to see performance improvements to the server for active sites.
Anyone who needs to notify me about a future outage should send me an e-mail on Workbench. This weblog's on a separate server, so it should be available even when Buzzword.Com go boom.
