Recovery Status....

Post by MichaelP » 15 May 2018 16:16

As you noticed trle.net was down for a bit... this was related to a hardware outage with the server hosted by a provider.

Today the hardware was replaced and I am in the middle of recovering the full site from a backup taken in the last few days as the issues had started.

Please be patient. I will post here when I THINK I am done with the recovery process completely and THEN I will be very grateful if you can post about errors you are still finding and that I need to be looking into.

Sorry for all the troubles... :(

Frequenters of this forum now have some idea of the suffering experienced by drug addicts going through withdrawal. Michael has sponsored and maintained this site on his own from its inception nearly two decades ago. He could easily charge us for the privilege of accessing its many treasures, and undoubtedly many of us would willingly pay, but he has never placed this burden upon us. But quite apart from the time and technical knowledge necessary to keep this site up and running, there are attendant out-of-pocket costs which the Boss has chosen to absorb silently. This is as good a time as any to remind everyone that there's a "donate" button at the bottom of the home screen at trle.net, and those of us in a position to contribute financially should make it a point to do so generously and periodically.

The jpgs in the chat section thread about CMS's new Ice Age 2 level are not loading.

The review taglines that are usually at the bottom of those pages seem to have disappeared.

The Ice Age jpgs are unfortunately lost as they were posted after the backup was taken, so Clara will have to add them back in - I will let her know...

The tag cloud I had to remove. It does not work on php 7 and I did not want to downgrade to php 5.6 again as everything else seems to be working fine, so this feature will unfortunately - or some may say fortunately :D - cease to exist...

And Thanks for the gentle hint / nudge, Phil - much appreciated, as always :)

One suggestion to improve the site would be to improve your firewall between the download level files and the website/forum pages. Symantec continues to treat trle.net as a dangerous site and blocks it because of levels by SirDanielPonces and LoreRaider. Obviously it is the patched exe at fault, but treditor.hu and the Levelbase sites were similarly blocked last year, and they have apparently fixed their websites to prevent blocking. You should probably do this too while you are still tweaking the new rebuild of the website.

Can you be more specific, Torry? What kind of attachment where you trying to load in which forum and what error did you get?
