View Full Version : Flashpoint2source.com is live
Aug 8 2004, 00:21
I have mentioned that I was working on a OFP2 site, and I can now invite you all to my site:
In addition to OFP2, it also covers VBS1, OFP XBOX, IL and some OFP stuff. (which is needed now with the new releasedate...)
So, check it out and I will be happy for any feedback to things I can do better!

As some of you might have noticed, Flashpoint2source has been down since 2300CET yesterday.
After heavy inquirements to my hosting company, I still haven't got an answer, but found out via other users of the host what's happening.
The server my site (and others) are on, is located at a company hired by my host. They got into dire financial problems and have NOT paid for their internet lines! http://forums.bistudio.com/oldsmileys/mad_o.gif
Way to go... this can only be described as the most unproffesional hosting company I've ever dealt with!
Anyways, they have promised that the server will be up and running by midnight CET. So I hope they do that, while I shop around for a new host!
Warning to norwegians looking for a host; stay AWAY from xmac.no
(they promise an uptime percent wich boils down to 17,5 hours in a year...in one go they have gone way over it!)

Thought I'd just give a quick update to what's happening.
The server is not up and running yet. The last message I got from my host, was just a few minutes ago. Basically, they have no clue as to when or if at all, it will be up again... http://forums.bistudio.com/oldsmileys/mad_o.gif
So, they are contemplating moving all domains on the server in question over to their own main servers. But they will then delete all content, and I will have to set the site up from scratch again. If this happens, flashpoint2source.com will sadly be away for probably a couple of weeks.
It's not decided yet, so I hope for the best. But now you all know at least. I'm sorry for this.
Sorry to hear about the problems you're having, hope they're resolved soon http://forums.bistudio.com/oldsmileys/smile_o.gif

Yeah, it's sucky when it's all out of your control.

Things are moving along now at least.
They will move my domain today, so I at least can get a page up that explains matters.
They've also (more or less...) promised that all data on the server I had before, will be retrieved. So I'm awaiting this, and hopefully don't have to start from zero again.
To all members at flashpoint2source; There is a full DB backup from the day before this happened (29/8), so in worst case scenario (they can't get anything off the old server), only members that joined in the 24 hours from the backup to the downtime and forumposts in this period are gone. All other should be preserved.
Anyways, as fast as I can get FTP access to the new server I will put up a static hmtl page that explains matters, and will be updated untill I know if they get the old data or not.
Hope you all have patience while this plays out, and hopefully I'll get the source up tp speed very soon.
After the preliminary explanations from the host, it would seem they can't be blamed at full lenght for what has happened. They have at least offered me refunds or upgrades.
DB backups on a daily basis will be implemented now, it was every other day before.

Daily backups, schmaily backups. http://forums.bistudio.com/oldsmileys/biggrin_o.gif Don't worry about it, man. Don't let a relatively small hiccup create more work for you. Not too much important info will be passed within a couple of days. Nothing you can't recover in some fashion anyway.

Flashpoint2source is live again. All information and data has been restored, and everything is running as before.
So, except for 48 hours downtime, nothing has been lost.
I still consider backups as a good thing to do, backing up the sql database in a nuke install takes perhaps 10-30 seconds... I'd say it's worth it.
Wow! Nice design! I really like it! Looking forward to reading about the OFP2 demo on your site http://forums.bistudio.com/oldsmileys/wink_o.gif

Congrats on a very nice website.
Now if only the game could be done and hit "gold" ahead of schedule and get released for X-mas....
The website looks great! I'll be sure to sign up for the forums etc! It's very informative and it's good that people are keeping an eye on VBS, it'll give us a hint as to what to expect for Operation Flashpoint 2, that's on the top of my Most Wanted list!
Well done again, keep up the great work! http://forums.bistudio.com/oldsmileys/biggrin_o.gif
