    Server Issues


    Due to a serious problem with some third party backup software used by our host we (and many other clients) lost our server at around 2am for quite some time. As frustrating as this has been for all concerned I could not wish for a better host as they have gone out their way to perform tasks they are not even contracted to do.

    I'd like to personally thank them for their painful work helping me get this back online and saving us a full install.. my headache has gone.

    For those that were in a panic because we vanished... had you followed us on Twitter you would have known what was going on. :rolleyes:

    Outside of the forum this is your only way of finding out breaking changes.. id strongly suggest you get on there. If your worried about security dont follow and just visit.

    are they gonna do it again every period of time ? I am afraid this would be a routine.

    No, they are using third party backup software that has screwed up their systems badly - im guessing it wont be on their systems for much longer. I couldnt ask for a better host in all honesty as their support is second to none.

    I have also been compensated 7 days hosting for the trouble.

    Updates on the Twitter are definitely informative and useful.

    Apparently, the hoster provides good support.
    Thanks all involved for prompt restoration of service.

    As a side note, expect some occasional delays or the server becoming unavailable while the host continues to resolves issues on their infrastructure.

    I literally did not know what to do with myself when we were down. Had time off from work so I just wanted to browse the forums on my phone while hanging out. Glad all is chipper now! :)
