404 errors Please read

Unread post by mikeshinn »

Over a year and a half ago, we deployed a large cluster of servers to provide access to our rules. This cluster is at updates.atomicorp.com, and we moved the rules to that cluster. We also updated the docs to reflect this change.

As a courtesy, for anyone that hadnt updated their script to use the new cluster, we setup a redirect to the new server cluster. Today we retired the old legacy www link, because apparently when you have over a million servers all going to the old deprecated address hitting your website cluster all day it makes those systems go slow, even with a redirect, and a cluster, and all sorts of magic.

So to help get everyone thats still using to old address to start using the updates server cluster, we've retired that redirect. Therefore, if you are getting 404 errors when downloading rules, it means you are using the old deprecated http://www.atomicorp.com links and you need to use the correct address.

Please use updates.atomicorp.com.

If you have questions about how to download our rules, please see the rules docs below:
