Re: Site going down.

Glad you’re sorted. If anyone else wants to join HostPresto can you PM me first as they’ll give me a couple of months free hosting for signing others up. Hi Ray - have you just had an email saying they are upgrading their server to support only more recent versions of PHP. If so do you know what im...

Re: Site going down.

I don't pay for backup service, you still get them free by default as part of cpanel. The extra charge is for automatic backups - useful if you're running a big forum or something similar. I usually perform a manual backup once a month just in case something happens, but I do have quite a few sql da...

Re: Site going down.

Hi Ray, that provider looks pretty good compared to what I've seen so far. Did you go for the starter at £24? Dave Hi Dave, yes I did. If you have a standard Cumulus1 setup your requirements are tiny. Support is great. They sorted out a PHP problem in a few minutes. Thanks Ray. I'm okay because my ...

Re: Suggested web site hosting offerings

Well, we're going to have to bite the bullet now Steve has made his decision to shut down. Is the basic A2 offering sufficient, and when it says "used to cost" does it mean it's an introductory price that will go up after a year. I don't want to be changing people's servers on a yearly basis!

Re: 2018 - An exceptional (ongoing) summer for the UK

For the S.E and specifically Essex, in many ways it has been a better summer than 1976, lasting longer. I moved into this house in 1976 and have good memories of the near constant sun and heat. But it broke down badly at the end of August beginning of September (when I went on holiday!) and we had a...

Re: Site going down.

Good luck with the Japanese restaurant!
Ray, it's only the 17th today so you would never see the dayfile.txt file for the 17th till after midnight.

Re: Site going down.

Ray, it's not really much different setting up with a different provider than it was with Steve. It's just Steve had a nice fair and straightforward pricing policy. A lot of them are £x a month then it goes up the next year. As for the website - yes it will just pick up with the current data availab...

Re: Site going down.

I posted earlier but hadn't seen about later in the week so I will wait till then. I have two people now whose Cumulus has stopped uploading since 15.15 and 15.20 on October 15th.
I need to know fairly soon what the longer term prospects are so as I can advise them what to do re: their websites.

Re: Site going down.

This may not be relevant but my brother runs a similar hosting service to Steve which I use. He has contacted me in the past and said that Cumulus uses a very large amount of bandwidth, especially caused by frequency of uploading, especially the graph files apparently. To alleviate this I cut down m...

Re: Site going down.

I've also sent a message via that form url. I'd urge as many as possible to do the same whether you are hosted by Steve or not.
