Do you have a HealthCheck page (from /zsValidate) to make sure your website is healthy?
  v2.0 Posted at 3/03/2017 8:38 AM by Tiago Araujo

Websites can be complicated, and a very small mistake can take the whole site down. But there are two different kind of errors, coding errors and deployment errors; coding errors should be picked up by compiling and debugging, while deployment errors should be picked up by HealthCheck page.

Whenever there is a deployment problem, instead of fixing it straight away, we find out what the cause of the problem is and create a HealthCheck test to prevent it happening again. So next time, when the site is down or re-deployed to a new server, we can simply run the HealthCheck page and fix all red crosses then the site should be back online.
