Shmax.com site status and discussion


Recommended Posts

Edit: Changed topic title since the site isn't down. :P


For anyone wondering why your dynamic signature images are not showing up (Puma, Breaker, etc), Shmax.com has been down since yesterday. There were some bad database errors, which still show up if you visit the forum part (from a bookmark) but the front page has been changed to this message:


Sorry, folks. I did something dumb and have completely hosed the site. It's not looking like it's going to be back any time soon, such was the enormity of my screw-up. If any of you are TOTAL LINUX/MYSQL ADMIN HEROES and think you can help, please contact me as soon as possible at shmax@shmax.com. I'll be in the tub until then. Thanks for understanding. -Shmax


I don't know any details about whats going on other than that. Maybe if we are lucky a backup could be restored. :tfsad

Sorry, folks. I did something dumb and have managed to completely wreck the site. Don't worry, all your collection data and the photos and information you've submitted are safe. I'm going to take this opportunity to do the server upgrade I've been putting off for weeks now, so when we come back we'll be on a more powerful machine, which will hopefully mean fewer 'database overloaded' messages. Hope to you see you all again soon.


Thanks for understanding. -Shmax
