Recent Downtime [July] [Updated]
« on: July 15, 2014, 09:30:22 AM »
Hi all,

2S has been down for a few days due to a problem with our ISP. This is being sorted as we speak and FT is looking at getting a new hosting provider.

In the mean time I have ssphere.sorck.net setup to maintain Second Sphere. It's was a day or two behind the live copy of 2S when it went offline because we'd been experiencing some issues for a number of days.

*This* site will be moved back to secondsphere.org when the main server is available once again so you can post here safe in the knowledge that your post content will not be lost. Avatars uploaded will also be transferred over and any previously lost avatars will return as well once we get back to the main server (FT has the avatar backups of these so will be getting them up later on).

Thank you for your time,
-Second Sphere Admin Team

You lost more then a couple days. At least two of my story posts are missing and they were written about a week apart.

The database backup was taken on the 7th. Problems on 2S started on the 10th and we were completely down on the 12th.

So 3 days for the most part and a couple of days where most couldn't access the forum properly. (The forum was too slow in the last two days for me to even load the backup system).

I've double checked the dates of what I posted, I thought one of my stories was posted later then it actually was so I've only lost one. I'm posting to more then one place so it isn't gone, just not on here no more.

Thanks for the update Sorck.  Server trouble is a right pain, so I hope that you manage to get everything sorted out.

Update: We're back to a nice spacious server. Hopefully it will keep running for a number of years.
