Incident Report for PlayFab

At 7:00 AM UTC the documentation portal (, which also runs the blog ( experienced an outage. We first investigated the Elastic Beanstalk which was reporting that the documentation portal was online and working. In addition, the EC2 servers that host the portal were also reporting as healthy and running. The outage was later found to be due to an unknown Apache error. The Apache service running on the EC2 had stalled out and our engineers have restarted the instance of Apache to restore functionality at 4:30 PM UTC.

This outage only affected the documentation and blog portals and has had no affect on the API service or any PlayFab service functionality. This system runs independent of the API service provided by PlayFab.
