LUWS down?

For more than an hour, I have been unable to access LUWS. Whether I click the Ward and Stake Web Sites link from lds.org, or go to wards.lds.org, I simply get the "unable to connect to server" message.

Obviously at this time of day it wouldn't be scheduled maintenance. Are others having the same experience?

Yes. There's a redirect in place that says it's down for maintenance.

I have the same problem. :eek: I'm trying to call some of the members before we start activities tonight and I can't access the directory.

Well, I do get that redirect if I go to the URL you specified, but not if I go to wards.lds.org or follow the Ward & Stake Web Sites link from lds.org. Those latter two ways simply are unable to reach the server. It would be helpful to make sure that all the published ways of accessing the sites used the redirect. The one URL that does it is not nearly as prominent as the home page of lds.org, and wards.lds.org is the link promoted in every e-mail sent by LUWS.

Oh well, thanks in any case for the messages confirming my experience.
