Unexpected downtime
14th Jul, 2015 at 10:47am
 
Well, 2 days ago our host did some upgrades on the server and changed some file permissions for security purposes.
So, there was some misconfiguration on our forum file permissions that prevented it from running.

Thanks to our perfect host support though (Renee) it was all fixed and got back to normal during my sleep time.
Just for the record I keep regular backups so even in case of disaster we would only lose a few days of conversations.

So, welcome back everyone!  Smiley

I've also noticed that yesterday's hits were not recorded starting from 2015-07-13 03:38:57 (GMT+2) but it got fixed a few minutes ago so  the counters started counting again now.

Too bad this traffic was not tracked however the actual clicking activity on the banners was tracked normally so they will show up correctly in the advertisers' statistics page  (Ad Manager).

What was that all about? Did the EU find out this site was run by a Greek and try to shut it down too?  Smiley

The usefulness of the cardboard box never ceases to amaze me. Now I understand why you named the site like this. Grin

Btw, today I fixed another issue with buttons' images not showing up in the forum.
You may have noticed it but now it's fixed, so I think we're back on track with the forum issues.  Smiley
