Users reported a crash on Wikipedia

by time news

Wikipedia crashed, according to data from Downdetector.

Users began to report problems with Wikipedia in Russia starting at 19:00 Moscow time. The overwhelming majority – 98% – cannot enter the encyclopedia’s website. In addition, 1% of users cannot log in, another 1% report problems with the Wikipedia application. Malfunctions were recorded in the largest cities of Russia, including Moscow and St. Petersburg.

On October 4, the social network Facebook, as well as a number of services owned by the company, such as Instagram and WhatsApp, experienced a global failure that lasted about six hours. Users also complained about problems with other apps: Twitter, Telegram, TikTok, Facebook Messenger, and Google and Amazon services.

Facebook attributed the failures to unfortunate changes to the configuration of backbone routers that distribute traffic between data centers, which led to a disconnection that “disrupted communication between data centers with a domino effect.”
