    Site Issues

    Type of Help Needed: Problem
    Where: Main Site

    Saw that the site was experiencing issues yesterday, and I see that the database had to be restored since I had a post and a few pictures in my gallery that are no longer there. I was going to re-upload and re-post, but the gallery is not accessible either.

    Do we know what happened?

    Not upset, these things happen. Well run websites have backups for a reason! Appreciate all of the admins helping to get the site back up.

    Thanks.

    Re: Site Issues

    Not sure if this has anything to do with the issues but our web hosting service is making upgrades and moved our website to a new physical location. Not sure of the timing or if it had anything to do with the glitches, but it might have. Normally these kinds of maintenance are supposed to be transparent, but sometimes they aren't so transparent.

    Our web admins may be able to provide more information.

    A reply I left on a post yesterday is no longer there.
    The thing that holds up all my woodworking is simply getting started.

    Couldn't get to the site last night and this morning. Now Norton is telling the site isn't safe.

    FlyingRon is working with our web hosting to get it worked out. I know absolutely nothing about how this stuff works except if Ron is working on it, it will get better.

    Re: Site Issues

    Our web hosting service really let us down and made changes with very little notification. Our webmaster FlyingRon is working diligently on the problem and we hope to have everything back to normal soon.
