Flywheel Cloud Maintenance

Posted at 11:55 am

One of Flywheel’s infrastructure providers will be performing routine maintenance to a layer of Flywheel’s Cloud Platform. Sites should experience little to no visitor interruption; however, in the event that there is an interruption, a 503 error would be returned temporarily.

This mandatory maintenance will be performed outside of business hours for the sites hosting region beginning on 8/1 at 6:00 PM CDT through 8/3 3:00 AM CDT.

We are experiencing connectivity issues for a subset of sites hosted in the New York data center. We’re actively working with our infrastructure provider to resolve the issue.

During this time visitors may experience intermittent timeouts or errors when visiting a site hosted in this data center.

Thank you for your patience while we continue to work on this incident!

Progress is being made and we are seeing a decrease in connectivity issues! We’re continuing to work with our infrastructure provider for further updates and will provide additional messaging here as we have them.

We’re continuing to see good results and our infrastructure provider has indicated a fix has been implemented. We will continue to monitor this incident until our infrastructure provider has fully resolved the issue.

Flywheel teams are currently working to resolve an issue that is impacting a subset of sites hosted on the Flywheel Cloud Platform. Features updated within the Flywheel Dashboard may not reflect in a timely manner for visitors to the site. The following may occur:

  • After updating a site’s domain visitors to that domain may receive an “Oops” page noting that it’s not the site they are looking for.
  • After disabling/enabling privacy mode visitors may receive the inverse of the state of that feature.
  • Enabling Development Mode may continue to display cached content.

We apologize for the inconvenience. We will continue to provide updates as our teams continue to work towards a resolution.
