Need feedback on new hosting company
« on: June 20, 2007, 07:04:18 AM »
As of last week I have finally moved the SGU site to a new host.  This change was needed due to the fact that the old host seemed to always have an issue with the server we were on.

Is anyone having access problems with the site now that we have moved?

No problem here.

Over the last few days there'd been a bunch of us who couldn't get on for a few hours, but that might have been when you were moving.

If you are referring to the boards, that's Rebecca's thing.  The boards are hosted on Rebecca's site and the SGU site (which Jay runs) is separate.

Unless I am misunderstanding this and Jay is talking about a new server for the boards.

Oh no I misunderstood. I thought they moved skepchick thing and he was refering to the board. I forget there is a real site sometimes... Itunes and quicklink to the boards makes me absent minded.

Damn the convienence.

I was unable to access the main page about 30 minutes ago.  The lack of access lasted for several minutes.  I didn't pay much attention to the error message I received.  I think it was "page cannot be displayed."  I'll make a note of what it says if it happens again.

I've seen this on occasion on some of the .asp pages:

Code: [Select]
Microsoft JET Database Engine error '80004005'

System resource exceeded.

/includes/meta.asp, line 8


That one was from about.asp. The message usually goes away and the page starts working again if I try again after a couple minutes.

Jay, I have been unable to access the boards directly for a couple of weeks.  I don't know if this has anything to do with the changes you are instigating - since as has been pointed out - the SGU site is not necessarily the same thing, but I thought the timing suspicious.  

I've been using a proxy server in the meantime hoping the problem would be cleared up, but it's still no go.

My ISP is Telstra Bigpond.  Location:  Melbourne, Australia.

I know Mickal was having problems a while back - he's in Brisbane, but haven't heard him complain lately.  And Jason mentioned on another thread that he has had no problems.

I have a dynamic IP address which I have changed a couple of times to see if it had any effect, but alas.

IM, by coincidence Rebecca also had a server upgrade that week.  I will forward her the link to this thread and let her know what's up.

I get problems too.
They seem to coincide with the weekend but I will record details of the next outage so there's some hard data.
Assuming there is another outage for me.

I am unable to download not only the archived shows (either directly or from iTunes) but the latest show as well.  Please - I need my fix! :)

There is a problem with LibSyn, the company where the MP3s are hosted. See this thread for a solution, until LibSyn fixes their problem.
