Prepare for a bumpy ride...
« on: July 06, 2019, 04:16:51 PM »
Our hosting site has locked us down and won't let any new members join. They are putting the screws to me to upgrade our server. I just payed this years hosting fees, but, I'll probably need to switch hosting servers....

Just letting you know, this site could be up and down till this gets worked out. We will probably be switching to a different server even if they don't refund my money....

How much were those fees and when is the click on the Donation feature going to kick in?   Seriously HD.  You need to do the Donation thing.  If some can afford to donate they can or can't whatever.  Nothing personal.  BUT to keep your site going is paramount.  Don't let it get to tough on you.

Like I said before, the hosting fees ain't that much....around $70 a year.... I can handle that (the domain fees are a different animal)
The server that we have now, changed their criteria without letting the site owners know.

Glenn had brought this to light, without me even knowing, folks couldn't log on and create a new account.

Granted, we have had little down time compared to the previous hosting company.

But, if we can't grow... what's the purpose?

Lps, I understand your frustrations.... and I'll work on that.

This is no scam, or scare tactic of any sort. I'm just letting you know that this could get bumpy, and hang with me!

I sent what they call a 'Ticket" , (this is their form) to them to either fix the issue, or refund my money to move the site to a different server. So, the ball is in their court. We'll see....  :confused:

The tech-guy added a error message for those that are trying to gain registration. The server hosting still has us locked down. Sent several messages to them and only got one response, asking for a copy off the error codes. They were sent, and have not heard a peep for over a week now. The tech-guy put a copy of the site on a different server to try out the registration, and it works fine...so, it is the hosting service that is causing the problem. I just payed for the hosting fees prior to finding out about the problem. I asked for a refund if they can't fix it, with no response. So, I guess I have to make a decision to move the site and loose the fees already payed and pay a different host for the site.

I registered for a account on the new hosting site....so, I'm pulling the plug.
You might not notice any down time, but may see some posts that don't get through during the transition. This being, that we have to make a complete copy first, they install it, then turn it on.

The tech-guy also has a plan for a donation button, if that's what you folks want.
