Basically, what happened was that our host, AdvancedRack, basically shut down without any notice whatsoever. Because we had absolutely no clue this was going to happen, we didn't change servers nor did we do frequent backups of our site.

Fortunately, I was able to obtain a backup of our site and forums. Just before our host died. This backup is now running on a server by thaDJ, one of our IRC channel members. However, the change in servers basically screwed up the backend of our website. The content is still there, it just doesn't show up properly.

In hosting, we're pretty much in limbo. If anyone could help us out, that would be cool. But we will be looking for another host very soon.

[UPDATE] After a lot of fixing, the site is again fully functional. The downloads have been removed for the time being.

Ok, the gallery is fixed now.

Only downloads won't work. And they will never work while we're on this server because of legal and bandwidth concerns.

Before the gallery, I was doing random crap... And it did something. And the only "I" I found was on my 2nd post.

But you fixed most of it yes. :D

So basically, thaDJ fixed the gallery and secured all the holes I left open. :wub:

This time, it'll be a nice slow search.
We've gone through two crappy hosts already. :D

i received this mail from this guy:

My Name is Glenn Martin, I worked as a System Administrator for Advancedrack.com. As many of you already know Advancedrack.com went in to major debt and is now out of business. They were behind in server payments and due to this all three servers Alpha, Delta and Theta were turned off be the respective DC's. As system administrator i had intricate knowlege about the Advancedrack.com servers and which DC they were located at and how far they were behind on payments. This information i have passed along to a few select customers who were willing to take over their late payments to restore access to the servers to get backups of their DB's, software and html. wwww.Chronichosting.com (john) has already paid 155.00 for the Theta server to restore access. Any customers on the Theta (rackshack server) should speak to john via AIM or MSN. As for the Alpha and Delta servers. John along with a few select customers paid to have access to the Delta server restored. The Delta server is now up and Apache running. Please backup your files and DB's as soon as possible as that server was only paid to be online a few days at best. Regarding the Alpha server we are still taking donations to restore access. One customer has been gracious enough to agree to send payment for the Alpha server later today to try and get access restored so that you can backup your files. Donations are still beign accepted to pay back this customer for his efforts. The balance due on the Alpha server was 199.00. If you would like to make a donation please contact me at [email protected] for the next few days. That being said if everything goes correctly the Alpha server should be back up later today. If you have any questions please email me back and i will try and answer them to the best of my ability. AGAIN, i no longer work for Advancedrack.com. I am trying to help as many customers as i can through this mess left for us by Matt and Sherry Williams.



Thanks again, Glendon Martin

To access the alpha server use http://http://66.246.85.157/ /whm for your reseller /cpanel for your cpanel and /webmail for your mail




Glenn Martin

Thanks to few customers who donated the monthly fee and reconnect fee the Alpha server is backup so that you can get your backups. If you are inclined to make a donation to pay these customers back please send any monies to the [email protected] paypal address. If you have any questions please contact me.

Those two emails are totally different from one another...
One says pay Chronichosting and the other says don't pay.

But it's all good anyways, I already have all our files backed up. :angry:
