Server problem brings ADV Films web page down

Friday, October 30, 1998 in News & Info, Anime News. Leave a comment

Web surfers trying to access A.D. Vision's web page late last night and this morning got a shock: A blank page, revealing only the startling message: "This page is no longer operational."

According to Tim Fitzhenry, technical contact for A.D. Vision, the problem originated from an internal server problem, making it so that the advfilms.com domain name was not resolving. The startling message was the default error message for the Apache server that ADV Films uses (and has now been changed). The Softcel page remained operational the entire time. The ADV Films page was back up at about 11 AM central time, according to Mr. Fitzhenry.

Those on rec.arts.anime.misc were wondering what happened (one person jokingly suggesting that they had gone out of business) until an ADV public relations representative posted that the page was back up.
