After site problems, is back on line

The Mountain Xpress website crashed this afternoon during what should have been routine maintenance. Imagine our chagrin. We apologize for the inconvenience.

We had to reset the site using a back-up generated at 3 a.m. this morning. As a result, we lost all of today’s entries made to our online, including Calendar, Classifieds, Clubland and comment sections.

If you submitted any content to the site since 3 a.m. today, please re-submit it or contact us at (828) 251-1333.

Meanwhile, we’re happy to report that the latest print edition of Xpress has arrived, complete with part one of our annual Best of WNC readers poll. Registering 136 pages in length, it has our distribution team hard at work.

Before you comment

The comments section is here to provide a platform for civil dialogue on the issues we face together as a local community.

Xpress editors are determined to moderate comments to ensure a constructive interchange is maintained. All comments judged not to be in keeping with the spirit of civil discourse will be removed and repeat violators will be banned. See here for our terms of service. Thank you for being part of this effort to promote respectful discussion.

    Sorry, well informed types did not miss anything. Ashvegas took up the slack.
    How long were you all offline again?

      Just a few hours, Boatrocker, but that’s 1,000 years in Web time (or a million in dog years?). Our new, WordPress-based site is generally pretty robust, and we’re glad we had a backup. Some staffers do have a strange feeling of déja vu today, however, as they re-do some editing and content-entry tasks completed yesterday.
