No it wasn't just you JB.
I couldn't get onto Maxi Muppets all day. Only just got in at just after midnight on Tuesday.
I could get on here alright throughout the day though.

Funky's been wrestling with problems at the server.

I think he's managed to get somewhere with it but requests patience.

Message from Funky - 9.00. this evening:

Maxi-Muppets.co.uk forum update...
After a huge amount of attempted troubleshooting I am seeing too many issues caused by the hack than I can fix, some of these issues may have been added to in my attempt to fix others, its a real mess. The database for the forum is unaffected which is why it appears to be ticking along nicely. Because of all these issues in the background, I am planning this weekend to shut down the server and re-install from scratch. This will take a long time, but no where near as long as it would to trouble shoot everything out.
Thank you in advance for your patience.
Peter

Not being a violent person but seeing the problems the hackers/ransom geeks have caused just makes me want to super glue their fingers to a 50 pound keyboard.

A bit harsh oldwingguy.
Just publish the names and addresses of the perpetrators and village justice to take it's course.
Village justice is when people pop round for a "quiet word"... :-)

And toss them in the river! Oh wait, were you referring to the cost of the keyboard or the weight? Either way, send them to visit the fish.

13.00 GMT

Peter Moulds: Just thought I'd give you all an update...

- everything backed up successfully and tested to ensure no data loss
- came across a database issue and fixed which reduced it from 260 MB to a much more manageable 125 MB, This is why the search function was not very good.
- database re-exported and tested to ensure no data loss.
- Server Rebuilt
- Currently updating server

Peter Moulds: Ever since yesterday I am seeing high CPU load now whenever I activate the forum so am spending the day trying to trouble shoot why, in the mean time whilst the forum is installed it will remain down.

Thanks for the updates Mike. It always impresses me just how much work people 'behind the scenes' of the forums do. I'm sure it applies to all forums.

So a big 'Thankyou' to everybody who labours away in the background keeping these things running.
It's all to easy just to log on and take things for granted.

No luck yet; Funky's called in the services of a friend to help as he's run out of ideas.
He's getting loads of encouragement from Facebook Muppets but the end is not yet in sight.

Fingers crossed.
