Xena Central

There are some changes happening at fan-sites.org, and one of them is that all sites hosted at FS will be moving to upgraded, more powerful servers – including this one. There shouldn’t be any downtime but load times may be slow during the move. I don’t have further details yet but considering that there are 26 servers, and 1800+ sites to move…  it all won’t happen in a few hours :)

I’ll keep you posted.

Hiatus

by Ariane/February 19, 2013/No Comments

I’m going on a hiatus for 1-2 weeks, due to personal, health-related reasons. During that time, I’ll deal with any server issues and problems and script updates as normal should there be any, but all other things will be on hold.

I’ve upgraded the gallery to the latest stable release.

Cleaning Up & Refined Alert System

by Ariane/November 26, 2012/No Comments

I went through all my sites today, checking that all scripts, plugins etc. were up-to-date and also did some general cleaning. I’m also taking into a use a further refined alert system that makes it possible for me to post hiatus, server problem etc. notices both on my main domain Crystal Fires that must have everything and only to the site in question (when it comes back online) unlike to all my sites like before – it’s also possible post it on the main domain as well as to either all sites if all are affected or to say to 3, if only 3 sites are affected. So less off topic news to each site with this upgrade.

This post works as a test of the refined system: if everything works as it should, this post should show up on all of my sites.

This Week’s Downtime

by Ariane/July 13, 2012/No Comments

This week’s downtime and errors were because of a failing hard drive, which was detected on the 9th. It affected two of my sites – this one and the Stargate site – and lots of others hosted in the same server. It was an old one, so Gertie decided to replace the server, and we are now hosted in the brand new server.

I’m sorry I couldn’t get here earlier to let you know what was going on – for the first I couldn’t get to either of my sites for about two days. Then during the transfer from the old server to the new server, the old server crashed, so Gertie had to stop in the middle of transfering all the sites and fix it again before she could continue (that’s why it took several days to finish), and I just decided to stay away from the sites to avoid putting strain on the old failing server on my part. So I couldn’t post what was going on here. I posted about the problems on http://www.crystalfires.net which is my main domain and always update-to-date with what’s going.

I have had a look around and looks like we didn’t lose anything and everything seems to be working as it should. Let me know if you notice anything amiss!
