Site down, MySQL error... sigh.

Post by raz0red » Thu Apr 17, 2008 9:04 am

So, as some of you may have noticed, the site was down for four days. Unfortunately, this was something that was out of our control.

I used to host this site at my house on my Linux server, but a couple of months ago we switched to FiOS. Unfortunately, FiOS blocks port 80, so I was forced to go with a hosting service. I chose to use Lunarpages since that is where we were serving up the podcast files.

Unfortunately, Lunarpages had a server crash and for some reason it took them 4 days to repair it! Needless to say, I am looking for another provider to host the site. Preferably someone who has heard of Raid configurations. :D
