Downtime due to bot attack

Last night, Illarion was molested by the SEMrush bot. The extremely aggressive behaviour of that bot caused some parts of our server to break down. The first thing that broke was the PostgreSQL database, due to a faulty configuration on our end. We were able to fix the problem on our end. There was no data loss and all characters are fine.

After some fiddling we managed to block out the bot that was spamming our page. The database is working again as expected. The game server is starting up right now. We are back.

Have fun!
