Site Down Time
« on: August 15, 2015, 09:46:46 PM »
As I'm sure most of you noticed there was something very wrong with the site today - redirecting to other sites :(

Initially I thought the site has been hacked and deleted all the files from the server to prevent any further damage. However it soon transpired that the majority of the sites I host on this server were also affected. Contacted the hosting company and they eventually got back to me to say that it was server issue and that they had fixed it.

In hind sight I should have just left the site files alone. I'm currently uploading a backup copy of site but it is a few weeks old. All the posts made up until the problems started today will be preserved but any attachments uploaded in the last few weeks will be lost - sorry :(

Sorry for any inconvenience caused :(

Cheers for your efforts as ever, Casper!

Though I did quite enjoy Immortal Marilyn...

Well done, Casper.

I could have sworn it was just a fly on the windscreen.

(25th Sept)My Server is reporting that there is a "http500 internal server error" on the NI(AE) site at the moment which is preventing the posting of attachment photos... but not text.
