WordPress.org is currently offline

All WordPress.org services are currently offline. We are working with the hosting provider to determine the scope of the problem and how to resolve it.

0043 UTC – This is related to a INAP data center outage in Chicago. They are currently investigating.

0200 UTC – INAP says the root cause is a fiber cut and the ETA is 1-2 hours for partial restoration of services.

0210 UTC – We have updated DNS for wordpress.org, api.wordpress.org, and downloads.wordpress.org so that requests no longer timeout and an error page is returned quickly instead. Hopefully this should prevent slowdowns on WordPress sites checking for auto-updates, etc.

WordPress.org is currently offline due to a 3rd party data center outage. Please see https://status.wordpress.org/ for updates.
