“We are back up and running, and everything should be working as expected,” OpenAI said at about 8:46 p.m. ET. However, a quick search on X reveals that some customers are still suffering service outages. While several users are reporting that ChatGPT is back up and running, it appears that the service is still down for certain users. Hopefully, everything will settle down in the coming hours.
They went on to say, “We plan to publish a public postmortem to explain what happened and how we’ll prevent similar issues in the future.”
It is worth noting that OpenAI’s ChatGPT went down globally for users of their membership type for over five hours.
The underlying problem, according to OpenAI, was caused by a problem with their database replicas. ChatGPT and non-completion API endpoints were both affected in some way, however, completion API endpoints, including chat completions, were only marginally affected.
