Is anyone else having trouble accessing eur-lex at ?

I get this message:

Error 404--Not Found

From RFC 2068 Hypertext Transfer Protocol -- HTTP/1.1:

10.4.5 404 Not Found

The server has not found anything matching the Request-URI. No indication is given of whether the condition is temporary or permanent.

If the server does not wish to make this information available to the client, the status code 403 (Forbidden) can be used instead. The 410 (Gone) status code SHOULD be used if the server knows, through some internally configurable mechanism, that an old resource is permanently unavailable and has no forwarding address.

Frustrating. I wonder if the site was hijacked or some other such thing?

The same here Oct 8, 2015

It doesn't seem to work here either, but it has happened before. Sometimes they simply make some maintenance of the site.

If you need to citate exactly, you must then wait.
If you simply need single words, a solution could be:

I use, but I guess the result is the same.

It seems the problem has been solved; I can access it again but it's a bit slow so I assume they had some issues this morning.

Dead slow Oct 8, 2015

After reading this post, I tried a couple of times to access it. It was taking forever and I eventually gave up after a few minutes.

Temporary glitch? Oct 8, 2015

I can easily access and possibly the site is slightly slow but hardly noticeable.
Good luck.
