Contributing Factor(s)

The primary factor was an erroneous script that was executed in an attempt to free web server disk space. The erroneous script removed the current system file directories instead of older releases.

Stabilization Steps

Redeploying the web servers with the latest code release re-created the missing/deleted system file directories.


All customers were unable to access the DrChrono website.

Corrective Actions

Aside from the stabilization steps mentioned, safeguards have been put in place to prevent further issues from arising. All potentially critical script and code executions on production will be vetted/executed through a front-running web server prior to production being accessed.
