In The Hospital

by Ariane/February 12, 2014/No Comments

All sites are on hiatus until further notice.

I’m in the hospital, been here since yesterday morning – first at the ER then ward. Don’t know when I can go back home, they need to find out what caused the acute bad diarrhea that induced dehydration (so bad I was falling down due to dizzyness) – antibiotic  or acute worsening of Crohn’s Disease.


They also performed the liver scan test thingy that my gastroentorolist has queed me up for due to abnormal bilirubin results, and that came back all clear. Also, my skin is tinted yellow jaundice I think is the word. Didn’t see it myself at all at home, but here under neutral lights yes. Azamun might be the culprit for all this, they say but are still investigating.

All good on my sites again. I finished fixing the problems caused by the php upgrade on Coppermine installations on day before yesterday but wouldn’t you know – when I woke up yesterday, the Coppermine developers had rolled out a security upgrade while I slept *head desk* Talk about bad timing!

So again I had to re-upload all the Coppermine files to all my sites and re-install. Took me today and yesterday to finish but it’s all done now! So, all galleries on all sites should be up and working normally, and as far as I can tell, no content was lost :) If you encounter any problems, please do let me know, so I can fix them

My host upgraded all the servers to latest stable version of php this weekend, and this has resulted in some problems. None of my sites were affected with the WordPress problems loads of other people have, but looks like that for some reason most of my Coppermine (gallery) files have became corrupt, resulting in Internal Server Errors. At first I worried it was a hack or something in the upgrade hadn’t finished properly, but that’s not the case. Coppermine files just became corrupt/damaged in the upgrade (don’t ask me why!)

Luckily from one test site I just did, I can fix this by myself :D Please bear with me while I work on this, hopefully everything should be back to normal by Tuesday or Wednesday night. I will propably re-upload the Coppermine files to all the sites, regardless of whether the gallery is coming up with the dreaded Internal Server Error or not – just to make sure that all files are that should be.

I just hope we haven’t lost any photo content – haven’t heard anything such from other hostees though, and haven’t noticed anything missing myself. But I’ve been in the panick mode the last several hours, so not sure I’d notice unless like half the gallery was missing.

Hollywood Bar Messes Up Sites

by Ariane/November 24, 2013/No Comments

My host’s partner, Hollywood.com, activated today the Hollywood Bar on all fan-sites.org sites without Gertie’s OK on the Bar design and in the process messed up the layouts of all the sites.

It’s been looked at now, and will be fixed ASAP but until then the Hollywood Bar messes up the layouts of the sites more or less, depending on the design.
