Well that really sucked. Coincidentally @#! I've been traveling since Wednesday, I just got home at 2am after a 15.5 hour drive to an email from Alienqueen about the errors. One command and it's all back up, looks OK to me now. I don't know yet what caused the issue but will investigate, may have been an automated response to a flood of edit requests through a spam bot off the top of my very tired head.

Post on my Talk if there's any issues (I can already see the Categories are missing from the Sidebar), I'll check again first thing in the morning to see if the issue arises again.

Unfortunately, because the site was technically still 'UP', just showing an error, none of the automated systems notified me of an issue. :/ I'll have to rethink the notification settings.

Awesome, the site is back up.

Glad to see it back up. Anything that can be done to take care of this sooner in the future?

Is there any evidence that the site downtime was caused maliciously? There are plenty of scripts and botnet tools freely available on the internet that can be used for Denial of Service attacks these days.

I think I might be the only one having this problem, but every time I try to upload a picture now I get the following error: "Could not create directory "mwstore://local-backend/local-public/0/00".

EDIT: Hm, it seems to be a particular issue with the filename I was using.
