SITE STATUS [updated Mar 2017]
« on: December 07, 2011, 03:35:37 PM »
This topic has been pinned for service reports and status messages.

Latest report: https://www.katsbits.com/smforum/index.php?topic=333.msg4492#msg4492
Quote
Over the past few weeks (Feb/Mar 2017) KatsBits has been migrated over to the secure https protocol from standard http. There are still a few remaining hiccups from this process, namely old content linked to and referenced using "http" throwing a spanner in the works, resulting in "Unsecured Connection" or "Mixed Content" browser error messages.

When this happens the connection is secure despite the warnings.

To fully address the issue each post and its content has to be manually updated so its linked and referenced correctly, which may take some time to do given the size of the forum.

To this end members are encouraged to use the "Report to Moderator" link at the bottom of posts exhibiting this error which will let the team know something has been missed and/or needs fixing. Your patience is appreciated.

Where necessary status reports are also posted to Facebook and Twitter.

If you're reading this then it means the forums are back up and running (comment text can't be read from the home page). The archived forum should also be active, so too should archived news. The store is currently offline whilst it's being fixed, once that's done everything should be back to normal ;D

As DNS was updated last night it may still take a while for everything to filter through and settle down. Send any problems or breakages (in message form) to info@katsbits.com. Cheers!

I am most certainly well and truly done (knackered)! Not even coffee stopped that from happening ;) I'll probably be posting a blog about what's been going on but suffice to say here, if KatsBits were a new site this would have been a relatively easy thing to do. But it will allow the site to grow some more.

Database error caused the forums, and much of the site it seems, to black out for a while earlier today. Problem appears to be fixed as of 10PM GMT.

Server was down for some maintenance earlier (0200/0400GMT).
Everything should be back up after a minor forum error.

Re: SITE STATUS Store and DB work

The Store and other database reliant services have been a bit patchy the last day or two whilst some background issues are sorted out. The site may go offline intermittently due to various "SQL" and "Connection" errors. The problem is known and being fixed.

Problems encountered with the store looks to have been cleared up so everything should be shipshape and Bristol Sound. Thanks for your patience (was a migration issue due to having to move the store to a new location).

Server was upgraded earlier today so may have been temporarily unavailable for visitors. Everything is back up and running now but if any problems are spotted post below or send an email in (support@katsbits.com). Cheers Peers!
