Thread: Bug tracker down?

  1. #1
    I've wanted to check the bug tracker for the last couple of days but I can't seem to reach it. Is it down or is the problem on my end? If it's down, how come?

    Since its hosted to an unoffical site, it seems that the servers of armed-assault.net/de are down.So we must wait until the admins went online.

    Admins are working on it already. Hopefully we and all hosted pages will be up again soon.
    Sorry for any inconvenience

    REALISM! No, fuck that, FIRE THE LASER!

    A certain German ISP wiped our harddrives and re-rented our
    servers, without prior warning or even a reason. Apparently the
    booking system was faulty .. we lost all data and are currently
    working with (read: against) the support people to patch the whole
    mess up. This proves to be difficult because that particular ISP
    doesn't even keep a copy of our contract with them.

    We have some older backups, but as long as we don't get our
    hardware back, these are of no use to us.

    Wow that really sucks

    If your ISP does that now you really want to stick with them? Since everything is pretty much (*&^%%$%^ up now why not change host?


    If we (armaholic.com) can be of any help with getting files back or something let us know.

    That means all the reported bugs have been wiped out too? I hope not. Or at least I hope BIS had a backup copy of sorts on their machines.

    BIS is not involved in the bug tracker.
    We had backups of our own, but it seems the host deleted those
    as well. You can plan ahead for disk failure, file corruption and
    hacking .. but a renegade booking system is not something we
    had factored in.

    At this point we're trying to get our hands on the harddrives and
    perform data rescue, but as I said .. they haven't exactly been
    cooperative so far.


    @El nino Foxhound

    Thank you for the offer. Sadly, right now only the ISP can help us.

    It's a conspiracy! ***

    Sorry couldn't resist...


    No-one had local copies on their hard disk drives? That's quite weird... Well it happened with other community websites too. Like with ofpec. Luckily ofpec had at least some kind of backups... I guess this proves that even if you are using a commercial host, bad things can, and do, happen.

    Backup to your computer and to DVD!

    please don't tell me noone of the admins of BTS done export of SQL database ...

    that are some megabytes or tens MB at max ...

    why people never learn to backup (forums, BTS, ISS, wiki w/e) ...

    the worst thing is i already said that about backups so many times ...

    We backed up all of our files on a seperate harddrive and on a
    seperate backup server, we have older backups on other servers
    and we handed out phpMyAdmin access to all our hosted websites
    for personal backups, including the BTS.

    On the other hand we're just not able to prepare for freak
    occurrences like this one. Once the provider wipes both our
    servers and our backup space, we're esentially out of options.

    Maybe boecke has his own backup, or maybe we still have one of
    our own somewhere. We'll come to that when we're sure that our
    drives are really a lost cause.
