All our domains will be offline during a short backup on Monday the 23th of August 00:05 GMT+1. The domains will be back online within 15 minutes. These back-ups will be executed because of recent DDOS attacks on other major software distributors and newssites.
List of all domains being backed-up :
Help pages, update servers, blastgen registration, 36IC, DPR & LPX DashBoard channels and the ROC server will be offline as well.
We are updating our site (new theme, new layout, MySQL update, dynamic content, new parts,…) and this may cause certain services or parts of the site to be unavailable. Starting tomorrow we will begin by making a full backup of the current site in case anything goes wrong.
So tomorrow in the morning (GMT+1) you can experience downtime of the server for several minutes to an hour.
In the days following we will update the site’s theme and layout. Keep in mind that we will not take our site down for these and you will see it all happening in real life. So it could be possible the starting tomorrow in the afternoon several pages are unavailable or look weird, since we will handle the update frame by frame starting with the menu-frame.
When the MySQL and dynamic functions of our site will be updated users of the DashBoard 1.2, LockPhix registration tool or ROC can experience problems. This will also be the case when the backup is made.
This site update is a result of the problems at Download.com, which cause Download.com to release descriptions of older version of our software, post wrong download links and freeze the download counters. Download.com downloaders do not have to worry, we take the full blow of all problems and you will be redirected to the application on our server.
Our website http://www.phoenxsoftware.com/and all subdomains will be offline from 15.00 to 22.00 (GMT+1) because of a blackout in the server center of our webhost Combell.
All emails sent to our servers will be received with a delay of 24 hours. The tutorials, update pages and other Dashboard technologies will be down and the Automatic update panel of 36-image converter 4, speedshut 3 and FileTorment Suite 2007 will also be down. The parts of our site that will still be online are the forum, blogs and polls. Some registration systems will also be offline. No data will be lost and we will be back online this evening.
