    Sorry guys we did a database update yesterday and looks like it got hung-up overnight somehow. ??? We're looking into it, all we had to do was do a server restart and it all came back up normally, I guess there might be one piece of code in one of the plug-in's that needs to be refreshed to the new mySQL database commands ...

    Not sure what the deal is, but it might be a good time to make the move to the new software platform official. :)

    I noticed the site was down about an hour ago.

    It's been running slowly for a day or two now, we're in the process of doing some server-wide cleanup and getting it all ship-shape.

    That explains it. I also noticed the horrific load times on pages. I'm in agreement that now's as probably a good time as ever to get the changeover done.

    Turns out that some other accounts on this box (there is 0% chance that we got hacked ... just saying that now) ... but another account that I run a website for someone got compromised and injected with malware that tried to start sending out emails. We have an anti-malware software on here, but the malware and anti-malware fought against each other and it caused the database to run out of memory ... hence the database service crashed, etc.

    Not going to happen again, I'm in the process of moving everything that's not-essential to another server right now.

    I don't even care to think about all the work that goes into what you do. I've had my laptop for like 4 years and still don't know how to turn on the webcam.

    Just working at it all. Going to look at moving the site to xenforo tonight, but the wife wants to go out to dinner. lol

    ... I'm working on doing a migration again, I've done this 3 times already and hopefully I can get it right this time. :)

    Was just about to go through a big hassle with cable/internet customer service. Last night GMTC wouldn't load and other web sites very slow, doing better now after a system restore

    Seems to be something with the database backup, it keeps crashing after 1:30 am ... I'm looking at it.
