Site Hosting Issues – Update 4

Unfortunately, the files were never transferred over to the new server – though it said they were being transferred. I contacted support and they said they will need to manually migrate the files.

I thought everything was fixed, but who knows what will happen on the new server.

Site Hosting Issues – Update 3

For hosts posting their shows – I think I got everything back to how it was. You can use the same FTP login you’ve been using.

All that’s left to do is to re-upload the missing files.

Once done, all shows from the past year or two should play on the site. The rest can be heard in the archive.

Site Hosting Issues – Update 2

I upgraded the server to a higher tier, which should prevent any further mass file deletions by the web hosting company.

The site had crashed upon migration, but somehow I fixed it, with one line of code.

Still in the process of restoring content, and fixing the FTP for other hosts posting.

Site Hosting Issues – Update

I think I found a solution – but it may take a few days to implement. It should restore all the missing shows, going back at least a year.

I fixed the shows from this month (Feb. 2024) that were not playing.

For those posting shows – there will be a new FTP account after the fix. For now, email me about posting.
