    Default Board disconnect: well that was weird!!

    My hosting service did a server upgrade and it seems to have caused problems for a few sites including the board (but oddly not subdomains of cavaliertalk like the SM site).

    Not really sure what happened but it seems to have swapped server spaces -- the board files were over in the wrong section of the server. At any rate I needed to do a minor board upgrade anyway so once I realised this was the problem I just uploaded the latest software version to the right section and the board reconnected to the database. Strange! I still need to sort the smilies.

    Man, Karlin, you gotta quit doing that! I always assume sabotage when I try to visit the site and I can't.

    What a relief. I thought we'd lost you forever! I was frantically re-entering my bookmark for the site, thinking it was a problem at my end. Thanks for jumping right on it.

    Thanks for sorting it so quickly Karlin I'm sure we can all put up with minor glitches for a day or so as long as the main board is here!!


    Ditto Rod - I always think the "nasty" breeders have developed their computer skills and found out how to crash the board

    I know it was the server upgrade that caused the problem at my hosting company.

    Gosh that would be exciting, wouldn't it? Going by the level of competence shown by the late-90s website 'skills' on some of the websites produced by the group and as displayed on the national club websites in the UK and US (one of the 'designers' having had his own site hacked with a porn site redirect a few months ago -- not me, I swear!), this doesn't really keep me up at night.

    Yeah it is redirecting to my business site that hasn't been properly uploaded as I haven't had time since I changed hosting companies (that's the text of the opening page). Can't figure out why it isn't redirecting to the board index, but I cannot tinker with the files properly as I am in work. Should get that sorted tonight.
