Aaaaand we're back.

After a week long hiatus to address some important technical issues AstroSafari.com is back online.

  • Is the problem with image uploads fixed?
    Yes, the maintenance fixed the attachment uploads issue. You should have no problem with posting images now.
  • Is the site on a new server now?
    Yes, the site and its' database are on new servers now. The site should be speedier than ever.
  • Is the issue with searching the forums improved?
    Yes, the search results should be improved. The search index was deleted and rebuilt. Since the search results are re-indexed you should be able to get accurate results for your searches now.
Thanks everyone for your patience. Please reply with any issues you discover as there may still be a few bugs that need to be worked out.

Cool deal, but.. If I go to astrosafari.com/index.php I get some php coding. May want to look into that. It may not be anything, but then again, it could be something that could hurt the site.

Site does seem a little faster, so far. Still not as fast as some others I am on with more users. Not trying to complain or anything though.

Has the database been optimized? hahaha. Sorry, I had to ask.

Good job though

Wow ! Talk about becoming BLUE... I haven't had to hold my breath for that long, ever. Good to see A/S.com back on my screen. I was starting to really deteriorate, because of not being able to

get my daily Astofix. Ha.

Please keep on truckin'

The downtime was kind of like being on a 14 hour flight with my supervisor who couldn't have cigarette until we landed... only to see him and many other people drop their bags on the tarmac and suck down a half-pack of cigs back to back in less than 5 minutes before going inside.

Yeah.. it was like that.
