In a while I'll post more info and explain it all.


Because, they're going to try to restore our data base back top last Friday (and everything posted since will "go away).

The good: Well, we are back up and running again. #mrgreen

The bad: OTOH, we've apparently lost about 4 weeks worth of traffic. #frown

The ugly: The problem was not an issue with our software but was caused by our web host's software upgrade to their servers several weeks ago. When they upgraded it first caused the various "outages" we experienced several weeks ago. They fixed that, but then we were plagued with their "Horde Redirect" (a program THEY use to deal with their business applications). Last Friday there was some netwide whoop-ti-doo that when they responded to it, they destroyed various pathing to our database. Our data was still there but the links to it had been erased. That is not to say that out database was corrupted - it was not - but rather the web host's links to access that data had been.

Since Monday (their phones are 9 to 9 EST weekdays only), I've spent close to 8 hours on the telephone trying to resolve this #shakehead Thank God for speaker-phones! #lol

In a nutshell, this was not our problem. It was our host's problem and frankly, we aren't their most important account.

There are some things we can do to refine our interface with the web host and I will be pursuing those during the next several days.

I sure missed The CampFire as have many of you from all back- channel inquires. Thanks to all of you for your loyalty and for your considerable patience.

Sheesh, what a relief! Glad I misread the part about losing data before Friday.

Speaker phones are great when it comes to dealing with stuff like that so you are not tied to a phone on yer ear. #lol

Thanks for keeping us informed and all the work to get the site back up.

I'll bet.
There's also the possibility - when things calm down a bit - that I (or you or we) could set up an automatic backup,
so's if & when they drop the ball again, we'd have the data tucked safely away somewheres.
