What a Nightmare!!!

Post by viper2843 » Tue Dec 07, 2004 2:38 pm

Well, we are back up...again. The day before I was going to purchase my new host and start moving my site, effectively eating the rest of bill with my old host, I get an email saying that they had 'discovered an expoit' on my server. Hmm, that sounds familar. I HAD OLNY BEEN TELLING THEM THAT FOR A MONTH!!! Along with this oh so joyous news came the message that I had been moved onto their Windows servers. Well I don't want to be on Windows Servers. That is why I switched to this hosting company in the first place; to get away from Windows servers! So now it seems that everything is ok (don't hold your breath) and we are on Windows servers for a while. I will probably finish my contract out on this server and move to another one after. That way, I won't lose any money.

Just to give you an example of the frustrations of Windows hosting, it took me 3 and a half hours to get the site up and running because I had to manually do everything that I would normally do in Linux using the shell access.

So, that is an update as to where we stand. I don't honest know what is going to happen next or if this is the last time I will have to do this. But I do know this, sometime in the summer of 2005, I will be switching hosts and there will be a small outage then. Other than that, we will see. Thanks for staying with me everyone. I look forward to many great Episode III topics in the coming months.

Yes, very good to be back up and running. I didn't think we'd be back and up-to-snuff 'till next month. Well, at least now when I visit my computer doesn't get bombed-out with virus messages. :D 8)

I have some good news (for once) but it is going to involve another server move. I just recieved an email saying that my hosting is up for renewal in January. I thought it was in June so I figured I would wait until after my contract was up. With my contract being up in January, it meas I can move the server now, without losing any money. So I will be purchasing new hosting and moving the site in the next few days. Then we will finally be finished with this whole ordeal. :D

If it's any consolation, your site wasn't the only one to be exploited. Glad to see your site back in action! 8)

I have my new host and I am beginning to transfer over. NO POSTS AFTER THIS POST WILL BE SAVED. THE DOMAIN SHOULD BE CHANGED OVER IN 24 TO 48 HOURS. See you on the flip side. 8)

Well, that took a lot less time than I thought it was going to take. I guess I got good at this whole server switch stuff I've done it so many times. 8) :lol: Anyway, let me know if you see anything wrong. Thanks. :D

Viper you might want to send out a message to everyone, I just thought I would try it and see if it was working, I didn't actually get a message. I don't know if others did. It seems that some did but I don't see everyone back. Perhaps my email addy has to be changed, anyway, just a suggestion.
