Outage

Post by Carnivean »

Hey everyone,

TOTALLY NOT MY FAULT :P

About 8pm yesterday I was contacted by the hosting company, we were getting smashed . . .
By 8:30 I had seen who it was (bot in Germany) and which addon they were targetting (downloads).

Unfortunately they only responded today about 11am.
So the changes are in to correct things though I need to perform an update too to the software and a couple of plugins.

Updates coming as they come to hand.

Would the Outage and required updates be the reason why so many of the buttons, smileys, etc are now not viewable (black box with an X in it) at my work and home PC's plus my tablet?

Most likely after the update phpBB is looking in the wrong place for the icon sets and such you mention.

Hmmmm I dont have the problem here. let me trigger a few more things on the hosting
Yes though it could have. I also enabled hot link protection (linking your images to other sites that are stored here) may have issues.
Also there are restrictions around downloading attachments. Where you can come from (you can no longer download files on here when you are direct linking to them).


Edit: try again?

Cool, I think it depends on how people come to the site, either www.ausbowl.com or ausbowl.com

I only allowed for one and not the other

Phew! When I got the error message I thought it was my fault, that the problem was at my end! I'm not exactly a Luddite but this new fangled technology confuses me! (Technology, for me, peaked at the electric typewriter and remote control tv)

There are websites you can use to check if something is down for everyone or just you.

For example, isup.me :)

Couldn't help but wonder last night if Ausbowl had a Facebook presence? Just another way of keeping people informed for such events.

Anything come of this? NAF referenced Ausbowl on Facebook this morning, and it would be nice to link.

I'm all for it, but I think it best left for admin to either do it, or authorize someone to do so.

There isnt' really such thing as "owner" of a Facebook page, just managers... its a trivial thing for anybody to create a given page and then "pass it off" to someone else by making them manager and removing themselves as manager. To that end, you're just as well having any random person set up the page and then worry about who should be running it afterward.
