IMPORTANT!

Post by Siginet » Thu Aug 28, 2008 5:21 pm

All of my websites will be going down for a little while. I have gotten a new host a while back and have been putting off transfering everything for too long. Now my old host wants to charge me $400 to extend my account. :eek: But I am through with dreamhost and will not pay them a penny. They have lost my business forever.

Unfortunately I know there are some users here who have files hosted by me. Please try to grab your files imediately! My deadline to leave dreamhost is tommorrow. :( So I don't have much time at all. I will try to grab as much as I can.... but I may not be able to grab it all.

Any files hosted in the Addons DB should be backed up fine. That is one of the main things I will concenterate on. But it still would be smart to grab your files from there as well.

Sorry for such a short notice... but I just found out I had this deadline a few minutes ago as well. :(

this is the last thing I want to be doing right now. My wifes B-Day is tommorrow!

Don't worry about mine, I have local backups. :)

Hey, as much as we all hate to admit it, we know that your wife's birthday is more important. :) Take care of what's REALLY important.

Cheers and Regards.

If you're moving from Dreamhost then I would recommend you remove the announcement at the top of this page.

If they are that bad there's no use recommending them to anyone. :D

I've never had a problem (a big one anyway) with Dreamhost. And I've heard horror stories about pretty much every single hosting company out there. I think that they're pretty much along the lines of ISPs, cables companies, and insurance companies. They all suck and it's a roll of the dice with whoever you sign up with.

Likewise, I'm still using them without issue.

I am having an issue with the backup I made for the Addons DB website. :( For some reason my backup is not wanting to import properly. That is why there are many missing files on the http://integrator.siginetsoftware.com website.

If anyone is good at figuring out phpmyadmin sql file importing please let me know if you want to try to help. I know the info is backed up but something in the sql file is failing and not allowing everything to import. :(

phpAdmin is nice, but it's crap when it comes to importing larger SQL files (like... anything over 10MB). Get BigDump, it's very easy to use, and it's especially designed to restore larger MySQL dumps.

Yes I tried bigdump allready as well. But the problem is something in the syntax that is messing it up. But I don't have enough knowledge with sql files to know how to fix my issue. :(
