So, appears my host is having some sort of problems. Their client area(s) have been showing a database error and a maintenance error at least for about a week now, meaning I can’t pay my February bill. Also haven’t gotten the e-mail that there is February bill waiting to be paid, or the usual reminders before the due date (today). So. The other hostees have the same problems. I don’t know what’s going on, and they aren’t communicating. I DM’d them on Twitter a couple of days ago, but no reply.
If my sites disappear/go offline/whatever unexpectedly, it’ll probably be related to this. I hope I won’t need to find a new host because honestly, I’m not sure I’d resurrect any other sites than this one (https://www.so-obsessed.com) and Jeri Ryan. Fingers crossed!!!!
If the worst happens and my sites disappear and I need to find a new host, I’ll be posting status updates to my DW https://intothisshadow.dreamwidth.org and my Tumblr https://intothisshadow.tumblr.com as well as my Pillowfort https://www.pillowfort.social/intothisshadow Be sure to bookmark at least one of these in case you need it later. DW is probably the easiest to find the newest site news post – I can make a sticky post there which will be always the first.
My host has been having some problems recently, but nothing that affected me until now.
There was an issue with the power supply of the server, and once that was resolved, turned out it had caused a database corruption issue in WordPress. But everything is now fixed and should be working normally!
I was trying to delete one of my Tumblr sideblog and like a total idiot… deleted my main Tumblr instead. Sigh. *head desk*
Unfortunately that means that the Zahn McClarnon and all the other sideblogs were deleted too. *head desk x1000*
Not sure I’ll re-create them, it’s just too much work. I’ll propably just post all things at https://intothisshadow.tumblr.com instead from now on.
I’m going on a hiatus for a while.
I just got back from the ER where I had to go early this morning because of the migraine. They managed to knock it down back a lot – not completely to get rid of it, that never happpens at anytime – and I’m currently feeling better. But it kinda feels like it might flare up again in hours/days because the sunny, hot weather will continue at least for the weekend and so there’s just too many triggers. So in an effort to avoid it going bad enough for another ER visit to become necessary, I’m going on hiatus.
No updates will be posted until I’m feeling I’m out of the immediate danger of it flaring badly. Sorry all the Zahn fans, there’s so much delish Zahn stuff on the horizon! I’m so annoyed by the migraines and the summer getting in my way. I’ll be back as soon as I can!
I’m sorry for the slowness of several of my sites recently. It’s due to the server being busy because of so many busy sites. My host will be adding two new servers, and will move many sites from the current server to the new ones to ease server load. This should make all sites faster again. They’ll be working on this the next several days, including the weekend.
I don’t know yet whether my sites will be moved or not. I’ll let you know once I know. Some sites, such the Xena and The Vampire Diaries sites, the gallery is so slow when I try to add pics that it’s next to impossible to do it until it’s working better. So no updates at least on those particularly slow galleries until the server load eases.
