For the last two days, the file system on hosting volumes vol1_5 and vol1_6 is currently stuck in read-only mode. This means that it’s not possible to make any changes to the files of the account.
Most websites will still be largely accessible in this state. However, some website functionality like uploading files or using file caches are not possible during this stage.
How do I know my account is affected?
You can see your Hosting Volume through your control panel.
- Login to the client area at https://app.infinityfree.net and click your account in the Accounts list.
- Click the Control Panel button.
- Check the Account Details panel in the sidebar on the right.
- Check the Hosting Volume row in that table.
Currently, the only affected volumes are vol1_5 and vol1_6. If the Hosting Volume field says anything other than “vol1_6”, it means something else is going on.
What caused this issue?
Two days ago, there was a server crashing causing some system data to be corrupted. The disks are currently being checked for errors so they can be repaired. However, for this check to work properly, it’s not possible to make changes to the files on the disks while the checks are being executed.
When will this be resolved?
The disk check is still running and should be nearly complete. As soon as the check has finished, it will automatically re-enable writes on the disk, so you can make changes to your website again.
I don’t know how soon this will happen exactly, but I suspect it will be resolved later today.
EDIT 2019-06-09: It appears that the reparations of these volumes are taking longer than expected. These checks appear to be running normally, but it may take more time for the checks to complete.
EDIT 2019-06-12: It looks like the checks have finally been completed. The few accounts I checked all seem to support writes again. So I think the issue is resolved for now.
