I am getting continual 'Unknown error' messages from sync today, but the server status button brings up a page saying everything is ok

For me, I just get an error that reads "Server incorrectly configured".

The sync server encountered a lot of I/O errors on Saturday. Potentially an issue with it being on a shared node and seeing abuse.
There's very little we can do about such sudden issues, especially if they are of a temporary nature. Some extra maintenance was performed to try and alleviate the problem but iowait remains higher than normal.

If Sync is of critical importance to you, you may want to consider running your own server for private use. Our public server is on an as-is and as-available basis.

not critical. it's just the message was continually appearing, so driven to wonder. Thanks for the info
