    Default Vectra-Sport website down

    I have been on this once in the last 8-9 months, but was reading a post on another forum the other day and their site is still down.

    I dont use it but still interesting to see how another forum has fallen, although probably temporary.

    Vectra-Sport still in Limbo.

    ?


    Bye bye Vec B

    Ouch, I run quite a few servers and i feel for them, i know its awful when hardware fails, although if i was them i would have taken abit more than just a database backup! Long live vectra-c as the number 1 vectra site then!

    Whilst corresponding with our host regarding the recent slow running of the forum, he replied that another ISP had a major security issue that brought down over 100,00 of their sites!!!

    This ISP was using a different software to what our host is using - all to do with the servers - but they (our host) decided to play safe and take the opportunity to upgrade all boxes to the latest software. That explains the half hour or so last night between 10:15 and 10:45 where people couldn't log on.

    I wonder if Vectra Sport are one of the sites that are using that other ISP? Either way I hope they get back online soon without much, or any, data loss.

    Jeez, 'tis a bit extreme!

    Thanks for the links knoxv. I've no idea if that's who Vectra Sport use, although it's not looking good. Hopefully it's a sheer coincidence that they've gone offline and not related to this.

    EDIT: Just pinged their server - looks like they're using Pipex so looking like it's another issue.

    So they were using that same ISP that has had the problem - bummer!

    Hope they get sorted soon. Sounds like their database is intact/up to date through backups, just the other stuff like attachments, photos etc. that they're waiting to hear the fate off.

    Hope they get sorted.
