    (Sorry if there are other posts like this, had a quick search couldn't find anything about this particular issue)

    I go to try download the Latest Beta build of bukkit (from http://dl.bukkit.org/downloads/craftbukkit/). I seem to be having an issue with CloudFlare, it says to give it 5 seconds, i gave it over 10 minutes now. I can access the dl.bukkit site fine, it just redirects me to a different site when i try to download any version.


    Is anyone else having this issue, or know why this is happening?
    The one time when i actually feel like updating my plugins, I can't, haha.

  2. You mean a post like this one? :p

    Also, if you're trying to download the latest "bukkit", you're downloading it from the wrong place. ;)

    As for the main point, I'm sure that the relevant people are aware of the issue and it will be resolved as soon as possible.

    Haha, well I was searching for CloudFlare, that post mentions nothing of it, mybad then i guess. (plus this issue has nothing to do with BukkitDev?) :p

    Both the bukkit, and craftbukkit downloads do the same thing.. Just sits on that page (would have gotten them both). Just managed to link to the wrong thing of what I was referencing is all.

    So now I gather is an issue for everyone, so I shall try again at a later date I suppose, I think I still got a few solid months before 1.8 arrives.

  4. BarnabyD Agreed. I remember reading that it was initially expected for May so plenty of time left. :)

  6. BarnabyD Indeed. I rarely put much faith in initial release dates nowadays.

    I really hope that they fix this! I need to get the latest release so I can finaly make my server work.

    First Post!

    This is also preventing wget downloads.

    Also noticed that my Python scripts (using urllib2) no longer works as well as maven dependencies from the bukkit repo. Both resulting in a HTTP Error 503: Service Temporarily Unavailable since today.

    Yep, can confirm ProjectInfinity. Can't fetch maven dependencies from the repo which is quite bad.

    Well, it's CloudFlare's issue, and there's not much we can do except letting them know about the issue.

    Maybe someone should get real DDoS protection instead of CloudFlare [diamond]

    All programmatic access to Bukkit assets is currently blocked by Cloudflare's DDoS countermeasures.

    EDIT: Things should be back to normal.

    I guess CloudFlare got DDoS attack and hacked! who knows?
  18. davewolax Why would that suggest DDoS and hacked? The two are unrelated.

    AdamQpzm LOL Idk i was just joking. these systems are very professional and it's not easy to hack them and they are protected from any DDOS attacks , but nothing is 100% complete. so anything is possible.
