My host’s partner, Hollywood.com, activated today the Hollywood Bar on all fan-sites.org sites without Gertie’s OK on the Bar design and in the process messed up the layouts of all the sites.
It’s been looked at now, and will be fixed ASAP but until then the Hollywood Bar messes up the layouts of the sites more or less, depending on the design.
With the last two servers completing their transfers a few days ago after which I checked mine on those two servers… all my sites have now been moved to new servers and all sites should now officially be working normally
If do you now spot any errors etc. please let me know so I can either fix them!
Looks like the problems caused by the server move are finally solved and settling down, except for some lingering individual site issues. I did a check of my sites on Thursday and Friday after my host send an e-mail too all hostees that they should now have ironed out majority of the kinks, and that everyone should start checking their own sites for any lingering issues. On completing that check I finally found all my sites working as they should (yay!), but didn’t want to start updating yet just in case. I’m going to do a final check tomorrow, and everything’s still “all checks go”, I’ll start returning to my normal updating activities right away.
Okay, so nearly all of my sites or sections (galleries) at the moment are showing errors at the moment. That’s because, according the my host the server move has been a “a headache of epic proportions” – the techs have screwded up and at least 3 servers are being or have retransfered. Lots of errors on peoples sites. I was going to post updates on mine, but after looking at them there too many to bother and things changing from ok to bad to ok again to only to back to bad on the same site too many to times to make it reasonable to make update posts.
So until further notice – everything’s a mess, the transfers are not finished, errors will occur, content and entire sites can be missing. I’ll will make an “all is okay post” when everything that pops up is taken care of.
Until this all is taken care of – needless to say, I won’t be making regular updates to sites.
There are some changes happening at fan-sites.org, and one of them is that all sites hosted at FS will be moving to upgraded, more powerful servers – including this one. There shouldn’t be any downtime but load times may be slow during the move. I don’t have further details yet but considering that there are 26 servers, and 1800+ sites to move… it all won’t happen in a few hours
I’ll keep you posted.
We’re back, didn’t lose anything and as far as I can tell everything is working as it should. As always, if you spot anything amiss, please let me know so I can fix it!
Three servers are in early hard drive failure. Gertie has ordered Data Retention and all sites on affected servers will be moved to new hard drives ASAP, but because it’s three servers she isn’t sure how long it’ll take.
These sites of mine are on the affected servers:
According to Gertie, there will be no data loss but might be some downtime while the sites transfer.
