Armed Forces of the Philippines website back online after unexplained outage

Following reports that internet users were unable to access the websites of media networks ABS-CBN and GMA on Thursday, September 3, it appears the primary website of the Armed Forces of the Philippines was also made temporarily inaccessible due to as yet unknown reasons.

The website https://www.afp.mil.ph/ failed to load across Thursday morning and afternoon, September 3. Visitors' browsers would thus time out in the process.

The error message, "ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT," or "ERR_ADDRESS_UNREACHABLE" also appeared when failing to access the site on Google Chrome.

Website uptime and downtime monitoring service UpTrends failed to show any uptime across the globe as of 1:20 pm.

The site remained inaccessible even after trying to switch regions using a virtual private network (VPN) connection to the US and the United Kingdom.

The websites for the Deparment of National Defense and the Philippine Army, meanwhile, remained online.

As of 3:30 pm, the AFP website appears to have stabilized and is loading again. No explanation has yet been given for the outage.

Rappler has reached out to the AFP and will update this story when updates are available. – Rappler.com
