Website Problems

Postby cam » Wed Feb 27, 2008 3:59 pm

Apologies for the inconvenience caused over the last few weeks, it certainly has been a very frustrating time! We’ve now move web hosts and hopefully we won’t have a recurrence. Everything is back online, however as you’ll noticed, we’ve unfortunately lost about 3 weeks of forum posts.

The Full Story...

Austadiums.com has been hosted with ‘MD Web Hosting’ for approximately 2 years or so now, we haven’t had any major disruptions in that time until now. On the 7th of Feb, the website went offline and stayed off for about 3 days. When it came back online, the site was quite old – in fact they had restored a backup from 23rd December last year. All MD customers were affected by this. We were initially told this was due to a major power outage at their Melbourne data centre, however it then became apparent that several accounts had been hacked.

We were told by support staff that a more recent backup did exist (from 7th Feb) and that it would be restored very soon. Unfortunately communication was terrible with the hosting company, the backup was never restored despite repeated promises, and only this week, they finally admitted that this backup never existed. During this time, I had decided to wait for the backup and therefore disabled the forum so when we did restore, nothing would be lost.

We’ve now changed web hosts. The data centre is located in Canberra, the company is well respected and has much better infrastructure such as the servers and speed to the internet. The site has been restored however a lot of stuff has been lost so that will be re-done over the next couple of weeks. The forum is back online, however it has been back-dated to 6th January this year. We’re taking steps to ensure this doesn’t happen again.

Apologies again for the inconvenience and we hope you continue to enjoy the Australian Stadiums website!

I got so much work done over the past three weeks. :lol:

I missed you guys!
I can see a new horizon underneath the blazin' sky
I'll be where the eagle's flying higher and higher
Gonna be your man in motion, all I need is a pair of wheels
Take me where my future's lyin', St. Elmo's Fire

It's been nearly ten minutes and egan hasn't logged on. Something's wrong!!

I'm glad we've lost all that crappy debate over the AFL in South Africa. That was the only really active topic and it was boring me to tears. Anyone reckon it's possible to have sensible debate about the GC/Western Suburbs expansions?

I've forgotten so much of it. Here's some.

* Souths move to Homebush.
* NSW and Vic tie on first innings points in the Pura Cup.
* Massive push for Western Sydney AFL team (hereafter referred to as the Razorbacks). :lol:
* Razorbacks (the basketball team) possibly moving to Penrith.
* WNBL GF to be played at WIN Ent Cent.
* Daily Telegraph still surprised that Newcastle has soccer kulcha.
* Daily Telegraph unaware that soccer has beenb really popular for years in urban centres of NSW.
* Morris Iemma still leading a mob dodgy c*nts.
