I haven't touched a GH related game for 6 months. Woo. My (dead) song thread: Contains horrible things.

Just letting you know that I know about it, but nothing about what caused it. Hopefully Wembley1967 will know what has happened (it's his hosting account).
I have made a backup of the database just in case.

Probably he didn't pay for the hosting.

I don't know if it helps but it initially went down sometime between 9:00am and 11:00am EST on Tuesday morning.

indeed its because he didnt pay for the hosting this is godaddys standard message when you let a site go. I know mine had same splash screen, i guess now its up to someone to get the code and backup to keep it alive as it was a great system

Guess we need those who can afford to sponsor Divra get his own hosting. Wembley1967 hasn't been active for a long time(he's an FOF player too, I remember seeing him here).

I'd be happy to donate hosting for the world charts. I hope you have a backup of the site though. It looks like wembley1967.com isn't available too, so people would have to update their clients to a new domain name. If you've got a full site backup, let me know and I'll set you up. I'd also need to know what kind of database it is. I imagine it's just SQL and php, but I don't really recall for sure. Also let me know about how much bandwidth it would use as well as the size of the site so I can make sure that we're good to go. PM me all that btw and I'll try to get something up over this weekend.

I also run http://www.techiefive.com but so far, it's just a stupid graphic on an ugly bgcolor. Feel free to hack this one.

I guess I might be willing to run them. I have a server that isn't being used for much else.

(Maybe it would make it easier to integrate with other online play features too - once, that is, we actually do those.)

We could add ads like we did here. I mean, I don't think people normally visit the site, but only use it to see scores.

Divra sent me a pm and we're talking about getting the stats back up, since I can donate the server/domain for dirt cheap (I have a nice hookup for hosting). Nothing is permanent/decided yet as I think he's still considering options, but it shouldn't be too long till they're back.

I am talking to both these fine gentlemen who have offered hosting to try to find out which will work out best. I will be optimizing my old code to make the update faster (it used to take a day or two and couldn't be left alone for more than an hour or so), but I'm beginning to doubt that it's possible to get it down to an acceptable time without removing features. I will be posting a thread where you can tell me what you want to see so I can better focus my work.

Thanks to everyone.

OK, I've got the domain name and the hosting and I'm working on updating the site for the new domain name. Right now my biggest problem is getting the database loaded up. It's too large to upload through php and if I upload it as a zip, the server runs out of memory decompressing it. I'm working with the hosting company to get it loaded up though. After that, it's just a matter of troubleshooting bad links. So the charts should be back up within the week if all goes well.

OK, I've finally got the database imported. Now all that's left is going through countless files to update links for the new domain. Joy...

-- Edit: Sun Mar 14, 2010 1:09 pm --

So... scratch that last bit. I'm done with the site. Every page and link now works correctly.

The only thing now is, how the frip do we change the upload URL in FoFiX now? There is no ini file that I can find, and I can't change it from within the game... what now?

So as soon as I get an answer on this and test to make sure that everything is working correctly, I'll be letting everyone know where to find the charts, as well as how to update your game.

I haven't tried with vanilla FoF, so maybe I'll test with it tomorrow. For now, it's 6 AM and I haven't slept, so I'm gonna pass out.
