Systems are up and running


Past Incidents

EGroupware Cloud maintenance window: 2021 June 2nd from 8 – 9.30 pm (CEST)

Our guess on yesterday’s problem is that an “broken request” from a client on a single domain, then causes “Traefik” to respond to more than that client for some time with a “500 Internal Server Error”.

We will re-enable “Traefik” tonight and try to find out which request, domain and IP is causing the problem.

Problem has been identified with high probability and everything has been reset to normal operation.

Internal Server Error in Frankfurt: 01.06.2021 21:00 – 23.59 hrs

There was a problem in the EGroupware Cloud availability zone in Frankfurt from around 9pm, so that “500 Internal Server Error” occurred there again and again. The availability zone in Karlsruhe was not affected by the problem or only for a short time after we had switched everything to Karlsruhe as a workaround. Further investigations suggest that there is NO direct connection to the update to 21.1, but rather a problem with “Traefik” as a proxy / Kubenetes Ingress Controller, which only comes into play under very specific conditions.

As a first step, we updated the version of “Traefik”, which reduced the problem but did not eliminate it. A search in the “Github Forums of Traefik” gave a similar error description in the following post. In order to be able to provide a meaningfully usable EGroupware Cloud today, we removed “Traefik” and are talking directly to Nginx, so there were then no more “Internal Server Errors”.

Failure of all EGroupware and mail services: 06.04.2021: 17.45 – 19.20 CEST

IONOS has caused a network problem, hence the outage of the EGroupware and Mail services.
Colleagues are working as quickly as possible to clean up and restore connections.

06.04.2021: 18.30h The IONOS network is back up, but it will take some time until EGroupware and Mail are available again.

06.04.2021: 19.20h The nodes in Karlsruhe and then in Frankfurt are available again, so all EGroupware and Mail services are running.


Service failure EGroupware node Karlsruhe & Frankfurt 24.08.2020 15.40 (CEST)

We are in the process of determining where the problem lies.
Currently, both nodes seem to be affected.
Only analysis shows a connection problem on the loadbalancers,
so there is no connection from outside.

18.00 o’clock (CEST): All systems (including the database cluster). were shut down.
The first database node was successfully restarted.
Currently the second database node is starting and synchronizing with the first.
As soon as this is completed, we will also restart the remaining systems.

18.30h (CEST): EGroupware and mail services are up again.
