Everything should now be working okay for anyone hosted on waves. If something isn't working right, let me know.

11:42 pm - Server Move

Today, thanks to geekish, I found out that my webhost is MIA. So I found a new one and amazingly, everything is already transferred over and the DNS has been changed over already. I haven't checked out everything, but I know that the subdomains and ftp accounts are no longer set up. I'll take care of that tomorrow so sorry for the downtime for anyone hosted at waves. You can access your sites at wavesoflife.com/directory/ if you need to tonight, but won't be able to access FTP.

I think that for the past oh...five years I've had to switch hosts every year because of some reason or another. Let's hope this one is a winner.

3:57 pm - Server Move

I changed the IP addresses today to the new one. It can take up to 48 hours to take effect. There may be some slight down time because they were originally changed last night to the wrong ones, I'm not sure. If you visit wavesoflife.com and see a weblog post that says server move complete, you'll know it's okay to upload to your sites.

10:51 pm - IMPORTANT! Switching servers again today.

I apologize for the suddeness of this, but I decided to switch web hosts again today. It's not something I'm pleased about doing. My old host was sold last month and support has become pretty much non-existant with weekly site downtime. What inspired me to move was that my card wasn't charged last month for them, but was charged twice within a week this month. I had previously sent in a ticket asking them why I wasn't charged in May and they responded that I wasn't going to be charged to June (didn't say why). Then when I was charged twice last week I sent in a ticket asking why I had been charged twice in one month. Never heard anything. I don't want to have a host that sporadically bills me. Not to mention the lack of support in general.

So I signed up with HelloHost tonight. It was the last day of a 25% WebHostingTalk forum readers discount otherwise I might have waited a few days. They're transferring the sites over today and then I'll just have to change my IP addresses for my domains.

There should be no site downtime. You should probably hold off on uploading anything or updating any weblogs until the switch is completed. I'll be sure to post again once I switch the IPs and then when everything is complete.

Again, I'm sorry for the lack of warning on this.

I finished moving everything over for wavesoflife.com and change the DNS. It could take up to 24 hours for it to change over. If you go to wavesoflife.com and no longer see the message that I'm moving servers and will be back soon, then it's transferred.

I think I got everything uploaded correctly, all the file permissions set, and all the ftp accounts set up properly. If anything's not working, let me know.

4:30 pm - moving hosts!

*** Very Important! Please Read! ***

I'll be switching web hosts this week. I scheduled the move for wavesoflife.com for Friday afternoon.

Please don't upload anything or comment on anything after 2 pm EST Friday. I'll probably begin transferring things over around 3 pm Friday. After I'm finished, I'll change the DNS servers to the new ones. When I'm done I'll post a notice here.

The reason I'm switching hosts yet again (I've moved the past two years in the spring...right around finals oddly enough) is because in the fall sometime the previous owner sold the company. The new owner took down the forums because people were complaining on it about downtime and unanswered helpdesk tickets and emails. There's no way to get ahold of the owner except email and he only responds randomly. Most people are leaving there. I don't want to stick around in case he ever stops responding all together.

Just wanted to let everyone know that my server is having problems again. I've been getting Error 553: Disk Full, Access Denied since about 5:30 this evening. I emailed my host and he replied in about 15 minutes saying that he fixed it and I shouldn't have any problems with it in the future. It still isn't working. I emailed him back right away and told him and haven't heard anything since. It's been about 4 hours or so since then. I'm really unsure why this error has been happening. I'm not anywhere near my quotas and the server doesn't appear to be full.

Also I wanted to mention my newest domain, cleverness.org. It's my replacement to andwedanced.net, which is no more. It's mostly finished, except for the pages for information and statistics (and a few more wordpress hacks). But since I can't upload, I can't finish today.

Just an update:
The webhost guy said that he ran a script to fix quotas and make sure cpanel was up to date and to let him know if there were any more problems. So, if you get an access denied or disk full error let me know.

wavesoflife.com hostees:
There's an issue today with the servers where myself and Aphie have gotten Access Denied, Disk Full errors when trying to FTP files. The problem is the same with all of my domains, not just with wavesoflife, so I emailed my hosting company to ask them about it. I'm not sure when I'll hear back, since they're not that reliable since switching owners, but it will hopefully be soon. Just wanted to let you know in case you get this error too. I have plenty of space left on my account so it has to be an issue with the server.

5:44 pm - MT BlackList

I added the MT Blacklist plug-in to MovableType today. So those of you with weblogs there that use that don't have to worry about comment spam.

I uploaded a new script to my directory this evening, and now I'm unable to contact/ftp/connect.

7:48 pm - greymatter

There's a rather big security bug in greymatter.

http://foshdawg.net/forums/viewtopic.php?t=2771 tells how to fix it and more about it.

i already fixed both crystal's blog and the shadow sister one, which are the only ones that I know are one my server. If I missed one please let me know.

Also, you might want to tell anyone you know that's using greymatter about this.
