Subject description: What happened ?
 

Hi,

Today we experienced some downtime, sorry for the inconvenience.

The server the forum is hosted on run out of space for several reasons :
    An increase in the number of files that we host as attachments.
    A very inefficient backup script.
At the same time the hoster experienced some issues
(nothing major, but enough to distract from the problem at hand).

Either way, the issue was easy enough to fix ...
And I have re-written the backup scripts ...
So now we have more room for files Smile

Anyway

Happy new year to you all !!

Cheers
John de Murga

I thought it was a penguin stampede for Lucid 5.2 . . .
or perhaps the only way we could get Larry Short and the Lucid
team to have a break . . . Smile

Happy New Year John
Thanks for supporting Puppy with a continuous forum service Cool

Xrter (on the IRC forum) is offering to host a backup
and needs a php coder
Might be an opportunity for shared learning Cool

Happy New Year, John
Big thanks for your continued support
I don't know if you changed the deal with R1Soft [Advert top right] but I now have to use noscript to block it....the flashing image gives me a headache!
Perhaps 'a word to our sponsors', might restore the earlier visible, but less intrusive advert?
thanks

We badly need an independent Forum mirror so that on these occasions when murga-linux fails we don't lose our capacity to communicate.

If someone will tell me what resources are needed I will speak to my server provider about the cost to provide such a resource.

-------------------------------------------------
Hmm, www.murga-linux.com isn't loading right now.

The computers that run www.murga-linux.com are having some trouble. Usually this is just a temporary problem, so you might want to try again in a few minutes.

Want more detail? See which nameservers are failing.
Nameserver trace for www.murga-linux.com:

* Looking for who is responsible for root zone and followed l.root-servers.net.
* Looking for who is responsible for com and followed b.gtld-servers.net.
* Looking for who is responsible for murga-linux.com and followed ns3.murga-linux.com.

Nameservers for www.murga-linux.com:

* ns2.murga-linux.com
* ns3.murga-linux.com

The servers listed are working, but something else might have gone wrong.


the main other forum is Linuxquestions

Yup, there's nothing like a bit of downtime to make us all realise how important the forum is to us, and how much we value it.

Thanks a million, John.

This forum is great and is fundamental for different puppy development beside Barry`s great work. I appreciate your hard work. And also these statements about what was problem.

Keep up the good work. And thank you.
