Microcogen down.
« on: August 11, 2022, 12:50:48 AM »
Microcogen is down.  The host most likely did another update. Bob G is working on it. It could be down for a couple days. It might be that the PHP needs updating again. Will post when it's back up.

yes i have an update

the problem is based on hostmonsters server software and their liking of wordpress and no real interest in simple machines forum software. 

i have contacted a tech guy that i have used in the past to correct the compatibilities between the two, my end hope is to have the problem not only solved but to move the forum to a more compatible hosting server.

its likely going to take several more days, but my thinking is lets take our time and get it done right, so we don't have to
keep having these things pop up every year or so.

at least that is the goal/hope/oh please let it be so!

:)

thanks for the patience

just an update

i have transferred the funds to get the tech paid to fix the problem
and he has agreed to work on it over the weekend.

so hopefully he is able to rectify the problem and get thing sorted so we can move
to a more agreeable and helpful host.

my problem is one of never enough time, being the Mayor of this little town, as well as the
state certified water and waste water operator, having a rather needy 88yo mother, and a
degenerative spine problem that limits my ability to sleep more than an hour or so at a time
makes for very little time to school myself on how to fix the forum issues as they have come up

over the years, 90% of the time when a problem came up it was with the host moving to a newer
php version,  the forum would go down, i would call the host, have them move the php back to the earlier
version and back up the forum would go.

the last couple of times however it has been other issues, wherein we had to upgrade the forum software
several versions to be compatible with the host.  to do that required help from the simple machines forum
tech guys, and i found one that was able to get the job done, and back up we went again.

this time, i have had to wait until the tech guy had time to work on the problem,  he is much like one of our forum
members taking time to drop over to another forum members shop to work on a problem with a listeroid, or a changfa
however thankfully it is software not hardware and he doesn't have to physically come over to fix the problem.

he being in denmark and i being in kansas, its a good thing he doesn't have to come over! :)

so anyway, again i thank everyone for their patience

hopefully we will be back up by sunday night

microcogen is back among the living again!!!

the tech got it all sorted out, and for now it is still hosted with hostmonster
i will be looking to move the forum to another host within the next few weeks, but for
now all is good.

let me know if there are any issues

Microcogen.info forum has been fixed. It looks like all data and attachments have been saved. The forum is operating on another server and will become live soon.

The forum has not been launched on the original domain name. Were still looking through topics. Once were completed it will be launched.
