Reddit is DOWN: social forum is the newest site to be hit by a major power outage because users around the world are unable to load messages for HOURS
- The Reddit site is the last to come close to an acceleration of recent outages affecting important sites
- The site must still respond to the disruption at the time of publication
- A series of problems arose at major sites throughout the summer
- Instagram, Facebook, Google reported earlier outages in May, June and July
The Reddit site is reported around the world and marks the newest major platform to prevent a malfunction.
Thousands of reports have been piling up from the United States and the UK since around 8:30 PM (ET).
When trying to access the site through a desktop, users are greeted with a message that reads: & # 39; Our CDN could not reach our servers & # 39 ;.
Users worldwide report problems with access to Reddit on the desktop, causing a wave of disruptions that have hit large sites throughout the summer
Interestingly, users on mobile devices report some – albeit limited – functionality.
Reddit still has to acknowledge the interruption at the time of publication and DailyMail.com has reached the website for more information.
A wave of power cuts hit large sites throughout the summer, including problems on Instagram and Facebook earlier this month, bringing the platforms to a halt.
Instagram in particular has been hit by several problems in recent months, including outages in May, June and the last one in July.

When trying to access the site through a desktop, users are greeted with a message that reads: & # 39; Our CDN could not reach our servers & # 39 ;. The site also says that users don't panic & # 39;
The last outage lasted more than eight hours and also had an impact on Facebook's WhatsApp encrypted messaging app.
Facebook said the outage was a side effect of & # 39; routine maintenance & # 39 ;.
In June, Google Calendar users were also left behind after showing a 404 error.
The outage, which stood out because many people were dependent on Google Calendar to organize their schedules, lasted several hours.
WHAT CAUSED FACEBOOK & # 39; S BIGGEST EAST STABLE?
On March 14, 2019, Facebook experienced the biggest disruption in the history of the social network.
There are a number of explanations why problems with Facebook's own hardware could have caused the malfunction.
The company's claims about a & # 39; database overload & # 39; on its network of servers can be caused by a series of internal complications.
The 500 & # 39; internal server error & # 39; messages detected by internet network analysts can give rise to various problems.
With a network of servers – the computers that send traffic to and from the apps of the company and their users – as large as Facebook, complications will occur.
Scheduled maintenance of the software databases used to send this internet traffic, as well as the hardware on which they are stored, can lead to planned downtime.
In this case the outage clearly found the company, which would explain why it took so long to bring their apps back online.
Facebook has so far kept its lips shut about the exact cause of the & # 39; database overload & # 39 ;.
Possible explanations include updates to the network infrastructure that have led to unintended consequences.
Another theory put forward suggests that an internet service provider (ISP) in Europe has misdirected traffic from Facebook and then spread this problem over the internet.
A useful analogy to explain this explanation is that motorways are driven on a motorway because of an incorrect road signal.
The massive failure of components, including storage or power supplies on the hard drive, can also explain the failure, but this seems unlikely.
