I'm no web guru, but learning today of the issues with servers recently have me gobsmacked. [/size]A friend of mine runs a wholesale hosting service and he couldn't believe this site had been rolled back to the beginning of the month. [/size]We've just been through the biggest month of the year, where everyone has posted of the problems they've had, and the responses to everyone's displays - and all of it is gone. [/size]From what I heard earlier today, the last server backup was done in April this year. [/size]The site wasn't backed up since the beginning of December. [/size]And even our site host http://harrisonkohn.net/ only has his index page up with every single link on the page going to a 403 error. (something you might wanna fix if you have it backed up Harrison) [/size]Now please don't misunderstand me - I haven't seen much of what Harrison has done for ACL because I haven't been around here that much, and I am not here to create a virtual lynch mob - He has obviously done a great job otherwise i'd never have been able to learn what I have so far. [/size]But from what i've been able to discover, Harrison only resells the server space that ACL occupies from another supplier - http://www.serversaustralia.com.au/ [/size]Like I said, i'm no web guru - but I don't understand why ACL would host through a reseller when the actual host would provide the same service (or more) for the same money? [/size]I know not all the issues are with the servers - the issues with the Chat are not server based, but code based, but i've noticed that in the past 2-3 months there just seems to be many issues. [/size]I have my own little website - it's not much, and i haven't done a lot with it, but my host backs up both my site, and the email accounts associated with it (which I do use regularly) EVERY DAY. That ACL wasn't is just a cardinal sin. [/size]I don't use servers australia, but I know the guys there take care of their customers, and would bend over backwards to keep their clients happy (as I'm sure Harrison would as well) - so why the middle man?
