Astral Pulse Temporarily Offline

Postby Xanth » Wed Jul 29, 2015 7:10 am

Hey all,

For anyone popping in here to see about what's going on with the Astral Pulse... I've notified Adrian (the owner of the Astral Pulse) about the issues with the website crashing out on a database table.
I'll keep you all updated on the progress. He hasn't got back to me yet, but he's a super busy guy.

Sorry for the inconveniences.

In the meantime, please feel free to peruse Unlimited Boundaries. While you're here, please sign up for our Destynee's Plan feature which allows us to help you to learn to project on an individual basis. :)

Hope this is not another Frank KEpple situation. Maybe we should go to Google plus or other format if nothing happens in the next little while.

Nah. Something in the database just crashed. It's old software. This was expected to happen sooner or later really.
Google Plus is probably going away shortly. LoL

An update...
I still haven't been able to contact Adrian regarding this.
So at this point, the Pulse is dead until Adrian can fix it.
I'm sure he'll eventually fix it, it just might be a while.

I hope this not an end of AP. It is one of, if not, the largest overall collections of information on this topic that exists. Just losing the ability to look up old posts would be a huge hit. Hopefully Adrian is able and willing to get it back up.

Oh I'm sure it'll be back... eventually. Adrian is a busy guy after all. While he checks up on the Astral Pulse as much as he can, he can't always be around for it.
So it'll no doubt be back... it just might take a little while. :)

In the meantime, we at least have this forum to get together. So if there's anyone from the Pulse which you have contact with, please feel free to forward a link of this forum to them. :)

So what forum software did it use? I ask because I have never heard of a table crashing... :D

EDIT: Re-read OP... Oh, a database table! WHOOPS! :D

I forget the name of the actual software, I'm sure I can find it somewhere.
The software the Pulse was on was a full version behind and it was beginning to show it's age.
So I'm not exactly surprised it would crash like this...

The Pulse is alive again.
It has been repaired and worked fully this morning.
Thanks to Adrian and anyone involved in this.

All Adrian. :)
He's the only one with that level of access.

I wonder what it would take to take the forum off his hands one day. hehe ;)

If he sat in a small room wearing gypsy clothes, crystal ball on the table, his words would contain ' ony with the passage of silver' lol.

YESSSS!!! Time to head back! :)

I can also move one of the things I posted here over to the Pulse... Also, why not have Destynee's plan on there too?

That Astral Pulse is too "all over the place" to have such a focused thing as Destynee's Plan.
We did try it once and it didn't work out too well. So we do it here now cause it just works out better. :)

Please feel free to stick with it. I'm sure we can give you some great guidance.

That's actually a valid point, judging by the amount of subforums... :D

It's still down for me.

I was actually in the middle of posting something when it crashed.

I hope you guys make regular backups of AP too. It've been a member on there for something like 12 years. Lots and lots of info there. Regular backups are crucial. I'm a mod on a younger forum and it gets backed up twice a day.

Heya NLC! Welcome to the better forum. ;) hehe

The Astral Pulse seems to be working pretty good at this point. Can you connect yet?

As for backups... Adrian runs a rolling daily backup over a span of 14 days, then does weekly and monthly backups as well. He's got it covered very well. :)

Please feel free to stick around here too if you want. Your assistance in the Astral Academy section would be greatly appreciated. :)

I'll check out the forum around here, though I haven't been posting much even on AP. It was just by chance that I happened to be trying to post when I started getting error messages and then the server went down.

But yes, AP is still down for me. Not loading at all. I've cleared cookies and other cached data too, many times, and tried accessing it from two different computers. I'm not sure why it would just not load for me but apparently that's what's going on. So maybe it's a problem now on my end but it's very unusual.

Edit to add... I used a proxy and it loaded. Obviously some files pertaining to the AP have become corrupted on my system.

That's strange. I always wonder when loading issues like that happens.

If you're connecting through a proxy and it works... then it could possibly be something on the side of your ISP.
