I submitted a ticket to OSU about the wiki being unreachable, and got a reply. A power supply died and the next scheduled visit to the data center is Thursday. They'll fix it then (unless they have some reason to visit the data center earlier).

Nope...
I think it's still down & been that way for weeks.

Been using the "official" support site.

They replied on 5/11 that:

"I can't keep the system up longer than about 6 hours. I was able to pull a filesystem backup, but I need to get a proper mysql dump (I think) so I'll have to go in again and do that later this week. I need to see what we can do as far as alternative hosting options."

https://cachedview.com is a good way to access a cached copy of MozillaZine KB pages in the interim. If you're using a chrome based browser the search result will also have a three vertical dot widget that you can click on to access google's cache of the web page.

Looks like there is a problem again.

Database error
A database query syntax error has occurred. This may indicate a bug in the software. The last attempted database query was:

(SQL query hidden)

from within function "MediaWikiBagOStuff::_doquery". MySQL returned error "1016: Can't open file: 'objectcache.MYI' (errno: 145) (tera)".

They fixed it.

"The database server for this site went down hard around that date and it looks
like it didn't come up quite cleanly and had some database corruption. I was
able to repair it and that page seems to be working now."

The wiki was down for a while again but is back up. Seems faster too.
