Is the STRING db server down? I am getting this error when trying to initialize the STRING object:

string <- STRINGdb()

Error in open.connection(file, "rt") : cannot open the connection to 'http://string.uzh.ch/permanent/string/current_version' In addition: Warning message: In open.connection(file, "rt") : URL 'http://string.uzh.ch/permanent/string/current_version': status was 'Couldn't connect to server'

We have a major hardware failure on the server that handles stringdb package API. We are working on it, but at this point we don't know when it'll be fixed.

Could be today, but hopefully not longer then early next week. If we encounter any further delays I'll write here.

Sorry for the inconvenience. Normal STRING API and all other STRING's parts are unaffected.

I believe it is working now? I noticed I can't use version 11 of STRING with the STRINGdb R package.

Because of this server failure I'm now looking at the possibility of the update of string package to STRINGv11 API, so it won't rely on the legacy server. It seems doable, so it may be available with the next update.

I just tried clicking on the link you provided, and got no response. So my guess would be yes.

STRING website and STRING R package backend are on different servers. Only the STRING package server is down.

Hello, Is it possible that STRING package server is down again? I cannot use functions that need connection to STRING server.
