USDA PLANTS Database?

Has anyone noticed that the USDA’s PLANTS database is non-functional at present?
The standard starting point for my searches has typically been from:
https://plants.usda.gov/
but that now gives a “404 - File or directory not found” error. A Google search suggests a revised URL:
https://plants.sc.egov.usda.gov
but I get a blank blue screen and nothing else loads.

Where did the USDA put this database?

I get a “403 - Forbidden: Access is denied” error for the first link. The second link loads just fine for me; maybe you need to clear your browser cache?

Here’s the URL of the new version of USDA PLANTS: https://plants.sc.egov.usda.gov/home

This is the a major part of a long-awaited upgrade.

Thanks all; that 2nd link is now functional (with the directory addition of “/home”).
