weather-watch.com down?
« on: November 13, 2017, 10:19:44 PM »
I've tried for the past couple of hours to get into the Weather Watch website but get a consistent error message. I haven't been on the site for a week or so.

Checking http://www.isitdownrightnow.com/weather-watch.com.html shows the site is down for everyone, not just me.

I believe Chris lives in New Zealand, not the UK...

Okay, I guess you are correct - sorry...  :oops:

Thanks Ken. I also noticed that the isitdownrightnow.com website shows the site has been down more than a week. Can't believe it's actually been down that long without someone noticing it.

Possible downtime
on: November 10, 2017, 08:12:34 PM
I've done something very silly and deleted some important files required to keep the server running  #-o #-o To make matters worse I've just checked my backups and the files don't seem to have been in the backup set  :oops: :oops:

Given time I'm sure I can rebuild them, but if the server crashes or the web server restarts then it won't come back up again until I fix the problem. The forum should stay up, working on copies of the files in memory, so keep your fingers crossed that it stays that way until I rebuild things. If the worst happens the forum will be down until I finish the rebuild.

Sorry!
Chris

And the last message :

I think normality has been restored. In some ways it's a bit better than it was before because the Apache web server has now been re-installed with the config files completely re-written so they're a lot tidier than they used to be. That's not what I intended though and I've lost too many hours of my weekend fixing it. As a warning to anyone who uses Linux...beware of 'rm -rf *'
