Database issues Tuesday 27th March 2018 09:29:52


We are currently experiencing issues with our database. This is causing downtime at the moment. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

Site has been stable the last week, so we're marking this issue as fixed.

We have restored as much as we feel comfortable doing right now, and new data is being fetched. Many of you will unfortunately receive change notifications, for caches that you already have received notifications for. We apologize for the problems today, and for the delay in cache fetching the next days.

We have identified the issue, and made a temporary fix. Unfortunately, this fix was removing all geocache data. We have to restore as much as we can from backup, before we fetch the rest from geocaching.com. As far as we no, no user-data has been affected by this failure. We are terribly sorry for this downtime, and are working as hard as we can to mitigate this.
