Yeah, well, it would appear everything is back to normal? It's vB 3.6.8, just like we had before. It's the db from 3.6.8 exported by the (american) admin at 1and1 and imported by the (texan/american) admin at hostgator. The "what letter" question is still in place and registrations are on. The plugins are active (youtube) and the smilies/button/images are all move.

Post here when you find something wrong. Have fun....

I was actually, thankyouverymuch. :unamused:

each of our customers had "rush" costings that needed to go out that also got done. I've got another 3 due EOD tomorrow. Between that and calling/emailing/dealing with host people it's been a busy ****ty day. Plus my boss is in CR so he keep calling me from there which is more annoying than when he's in the office.

But my dad's out of surgery, he's good (his diagnosis though :lol:). That's good news. :)

like what?

Scott's "thansk" thread was the last one I know of that I can remember. What, specifically, are we missing?

edit: I'm not seeing a PAD thread from yesterday, we went down at ~4pm, so we HAD to have had something by then right? We may be missing posts from yesterday come to think of it.

Hell yeah! Good work, Ben, thanks for dealing with it.

jacobsen1
04-16-2009, 05:12 PM
yeah, it seems like we might be missing from then to when we lost it at around 4pm yesterday..... :unamused:

I'm thinking this "backup" they dumped is an actual backup they run, not what's ON the actual server (that's too big)....

danm
04-16-2009, 05:14 PM
ok so i'm not crazy, i thought those threads had further responses past what i saw a few minutes ago. but all in all, we lost very little and have a bigger better more texan server! :banana::banana::banana::banana:

jacobsen1
04-16-2009, 05:15 PM
yeah, I'm a HUGE texas fan right now. :D

and BTW, I found the first error... because PAD is set to be ordered by posted date, and because we lost yesterday, Bill posted todays before someone posted yesterdays, so now those 2 dates will be flipped forever (unless I get crafty)....

i'm sure you can edit the creation timestamp.

fwiw, i've been VERY happy with hostgator. you can also get shell access by request (which can come in handy).

Tito

So what's our limit?

no, you can't (I've tried before and the vB guys laughed at me for asking)...

but I can copy posts, so I just found some posts in the right timeframe by you ken and occy and made it work... PADs are now back in order. :)

When did pad get changed like that? (I haven't posted there in 09)

jacobsen1

So what's our limit?

for what?

the db has no size restriction and and I can have as many as I want. We have unlimited storage space and unlimited bandwidth (for $7.95 a month! :lol:). So really, we've got everything we need until our traffic needs it's own server, but they also offer dedicated hosting (which is much more expensive, but by then we should be making enough affiliate money to cover that anyway). This basically ends up being a tad more expensive than 1and1, but (hopefully) much more reliable.

Just for the record, this has been a WIP for a while, I just haven't had the time, or made the time. When we went to vB last December I was reading on the vB boards about hosts. Hostgator is pretty well received (no negative comments, just maybe not the most popular) while 1and1 is pretty well hated. But I already had everything setup, so we were stuck. It just would have been nice to plan this a bit better so I could announce it, lock it, get a FULL backup, and have a few days to work on everything instead of <24 hours.....

I really doubt it since I forgot to install impex on this version of vB (it's the third on hostgator in 24 hours).....

maybe tomorrow? but I'd also hate to **** up what we have.....


****, my number changed.

Sorry you had to deal with that all by yourself Ben, great job getting it back up and running.

For some reason my bragging thread is off limits and I don't have time to figure it out.

www.newschoolofphotography.com leads me to a temporary page with an apology and links to the temp forum and blog. When I accessed it from home earlier I used the shortcut www.newschoolofphotography.com/forum and it gets me direct to here. Maybe the front page isn't working?
