Well, I've figured out the cause of the outage. BibleShared.com's database server uses 3 hard disk drives to store the site and data. 1 of these drives went bad and caused the system to come crashing to a halt.
I'm not on-site until later tonight, so I won't be able to do anything about it until then, but it could be a few days to get a replacement drive and get everything back and operational.
This is actually the third hard disk failure I've personally experienced in the last 2 weeks. All of them happening on Dell-built computers. It's really becoming frustrating.
