So if you tried login in to facebook yesterday at a particular period of time you would have noticed that it was not responding.
Well facebook today has come out to address the issue, of course there were rumours that it was a route leak but facebook said it was nothing like that but just a minor server configuration change.
Facebook wrote: “Yesterday, as a result of a server configuration change, many people had trouble accessing our apps and services. We’ve now resolved the issues and our systems are recovering. We’re very sorry for the inconvenience and appreciate everyone’s patience.” Millions if not even billions of people were affected “even we here at Techcopp were affected and that was why we were not able to post a lot yesterday( and we are sincerely sorry about that), other affected users took to twitter to vent thier anger and frustration. The outage was reported to also be the largest ever recorded by the service Downdectector.
Tom Sanders, co-founder of Downdetector said in a report “By duration, this is by far the largest outage we have seen since the launch of Downdetector in 2012, Our systems processed about 7.5 million problem reports from end users over the course of this incident. Never before have we such a large scale outage.”
Later on, some of those who said the outage was as a result of a route leak began retracting their statements.
