Facebook (FB -1.8%) says it's resolved outages that plagued the company and its Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp services over the past 24 hours.

"Yesterday, as a result of a server configuration change, many people had trouble accessing our apps and services," the company says in a tweet.

We've now resolved the issues and our systems are recovering. We’re very sorry for the inconvenience and appreciate everyone’s patience.

The company had said yesterday that the issue wasn't related to a distributed denial-of-service attack, an intentional move often made to sabotage major Web services.
