NOTE: for everybody that logs into their blog at v2.weblogs.us, all problems should be gone. For people that login at admin.weblogs.us, we either need to upgrade you to V2 or if you’d rather move to a different host, the export feature still works on admin.weblogs.us
Hey guys, sorry for the poor communication lately, here is an update of what’s been going on:
Information about the recent problems with Weblogs.us
As I left Missouri for vacation the weblogs.us server ran out of hard drive space, server was shut down.
I discovered the problem and upon arriving in Colorado I emailed TulasConnect (with whom I collocate the server) and asked them to reset the server, it took a couple tries but service was restored on the 17th.
MySQL became overloaded on the server, prevented commenting and posting. Fixed on the 23rd
Earlier in the month I tried using SCODE to prevent comment spam, this was blocking many legitimate comments. This problem has been fixed for V2 users.
Issue still remaining
The blogs hosted on admin.weblogs.us are unable to post new entries. This problem is related to the Berkley DB system that admin.weblogs.us uses.
The solution for is to transfer the blogs to v2.weblogs.us which is faster, easier to support and overall just better than the old system. Thankfully, admin.weblogs.us blogs are still able to export all their entries and comments to the standard Movable Type export format.
If you have an admin.weblogs.us site and would like to be transferred, let me know by posting a comment on this entry or by emailing me at jd_hodges_ii AT hotmail.com and I will get you transferred.
My apologies for the problems, and my thanks for your patience. I am glad to have this opportunity to upgrade folks to the better service of V2.weblogs.us and to keep weblogs.us free as always.
To see which blogs have been upgraded already, check out the extended entry…
