Today we were able to investigate the signer machine at the datacenter.
As previously assumed, the signer machine was powered off. It was not possible to power it on again, so either both PSUs or other components died.
As we ordered a replacement-machine of the same type we were able to use the existing harddrives to power up the signer again.
Currently the signer is catching up, which will take some hours. As soon as your certificate was processed, you’ll get an email from our server.
The certificate of www.cacert.org is in the queue (together with your certificates and revocations), so we need to wait until it’s ready. It will get updated as soon as possible.
Update 2020-05-05: All pending certificates requests are processed now, new requests should now processed on the fly again.

Thanks for the good work! I had as good as given up on cacert, but it’s great to see that people are still keeping the fire burning….
Thanks for dealing with the issue.
CRL is working again, thank you.
Thanks a lot for the efforts to bring the server up again
Don’t they have hands-on-service at that datacenter?
