Server crash

The server crashed this morning from a hard drive problem, affecting Antiquatis, ConsciousHugs and the RS sites.

It is now fixed, but the server provider is recommending the hard drives be replaced with newer ones.

Right now, everything should be OK.

Still bringing sites back online... had to rebuild the operating system from scratch, as the server company could not handle copying a disk...

One down, about a dozen to go!

Since we upgraded the OS with the hard drive replacement, there are still a bunch of problems floating around the websites, most notably the Antiquatis main site, reciprocal.systems and rstheory.org.

I am just going to deprecate rstheory.org and redirect it to reciprocalsystem.org, to reduce maintenance.

Since nobody is going to maintain the Antiquatis main site, I will probably just remove that as well, rather than try to fix all the certificate errors on the site.

I will get reciprocal.systems back online, but it seems to be missing PHP modules that I have not yet figured out how to install.

Still having issues with server and websites. Web services crashed today for a while--almost impossible to debug, when the only error it gives you is "service failed to start." Duh, I KNOW that!

Antiquatis main site is down, haven't figured out why yet. I think something in the config file became corrupted, as this new web maintenance software is buggier than a bait shop. Getting so I don't want to touch anything!

All the websites should be back up and running normally.

Let me know if you run into any problems, as there are thousands of little things that can go wrong, that never show up on the basic validation tests.

Thermal overload

Can you believe it... I FINALLY get all the bugs worked out of the site and get everything up, and the server loses a fan, overheats and crashes.

Fixed now; at least that is what I was told by the hardware support folks.

Thanks for the update, I saw it was offline when I went to login 10 minutes ago, then it was back when I checked just now, thanks for fixing it (yet again)! :)

A number of the screens in the UCP (User Control Panel) are coming up blank... don't know why yet, but am looking into it. It may have more to do with the last phpBB3 update, than the server crash.

Should be fixed; was a problem old, cached files that needed to be cleared.
