CPCWiki online now on new server
« on: 18:05, 10 August 09 »
Hi together,

after a few days of intensive work on the old CPC-Wiki database file (about 80mb), I managed to get CPC-Wiki website back online.

Many changes were needed in the internal database to make it work, so I still cannot promise you, that everything is back online.

Please check http://cpcwiki.eu and try it.

Also tell me please, when some things are not working yet.

Cheers,
Markus

Hello Markus.
 
Congratulations with your work.
 
Well, I have a little problem with this file :
 
http://cpcwiki.eu/index.php/File:Amsword_Disc_-_side_A.jpg
 
When I upload it, I don't mark on Show this file, and Then I try to upload another time well but I can't see now this file.
 
Is it necessary mark any time when upload files this: show this file?.
 
Perhaps we don't need this option.
 
Can you help me to repair this.
 
Thanks for all.
 
 
RAFA.

Hi RAFA,

I fixed your file.
It was not your fault.
Some folders were / are still wrong chmod'ed.
Maybe the correct chmod's will take effect later. My filezilla is going mad with this site.

Thanks Markus.
 
Now is OK.
 
One question : When I have some big manuals that I can't upload (bigger than 2 MB) in the past I send to Gryzor, now I can send to you for upload directly to the datafile of the CPCwiki.

Best thing is:
- Wait until Gryzor is back, so we (Gryzor & me) can discuss about the future.
- Use Wiki as read-only first, please.

Another small problem: When I try to login I only see a complete white page. I use the plain old standard Wiki style, as I don't like the new one, so I guess, that there is a problem with it. I would change it back, but I can't access my options. Can you please have a look at it or just change the selected style in my profile :)?

Sorry, I'm no Wiki-admin. Please wait until Gryzor will come back.

This new server is much, much faster than the old one :) Is there any way you can get the old domain (cpcwiki.com) pointed here though?

Hello guys,

@CPCmaniaco: I've got your manuals, will ftp them as soon as I get back, don't worry - and thanks!!!
@Octoate: when I get back I'll debug the php and see what causes it - haven't really tested the system with the old theme. I may need to ask you for your password or we could do it together at some point, but don't worry, we'll get it fixed :)
@Executioner: Kangaroo appears to be withholding the domain as some sort of punishment/revenge against me, I'm afraid...

Back to the beach,
Gryzor

No problem, I am not in a hurry - so you have all the time you need. Have a nice vacation and after that, we can have a look at the problem :).

You may modify articles links on wikipedia to point out the new page, i modified French edition : http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amstrad_CPC
"NOP" is the perfect program : short , fast and (known) bug free

You're very much right about that....

This is one of the problems we're facing - since Kangaroo 'stole' the domain, the word must spread about the new url in every place. Tedious job... But thanks for pointing out the wikipedia articles.

@Octoate: I'm back now, so we can work on the issue you're facing. Can you email me? krakout gmail is the address :)

Hi, has anyone mentioned that adding external links to a wiki page fails with a Captcha error ???

Yes, it's over here: http://cpcwiki.eu/forum/index.php/topic,138.msg2710.html#msg2710

I'm working on it right now...

Ok, a couple of words about the wiki situation:

You can read the entire story here:
http://cpc-forum.de/viewtopic.php?t=710&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0
(though most of it is in German).

To cut a long story short:

-Kangaroo decided, without any discussion, to withdraw support from the wiki (among other projects)
-In doing so, he also launched a personal attack against me, for reasons really unknown
-So I moved the wiki to another server, currently donated by Devilmarkus
-I also asked him to give me ownership of the cpcwiki.com domain, which he refused to do, and made it auto-redirect to his personal blog.

You can read my response here: http://cpc-forum.de/viewtopic.php?t=710&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=45
(in english, you gotta scroll down a bit)

End of story, for now. You can visit cpc-wiki.com, and everything is
functional again. Devilmarkus not only donated the space here, but he's also done a terrific job debugging the whole thing and cleaning the database to work on the new server, so let's all thank him :)

Thanks for your interest :)

Cheers
Gryzor

By the way, initially, and after Kangaroo's taking over the old domain, I feared for the worst in terms of people not finding us. Especially search engines - CPCWiki had built nice positions in those and we were getting enough traffic from there, and this will take time to happen with the new domain (anyone with expertise in SEO???). However, traffic is great, all things considered. Look at this:



Blue line is this year, green is last year. Of course, this year in general we're higher than 2008, but I think it's good enough. And not only that, Bounce Rate is down by 32% (meaning less people just land here and leave) and average time on site is up by 13%. So I think we'll pull it through...

Monobook (the default skin for the wiki) has been reinstated, it was a file problem. It hasn't been customised with stats and all, though, so please don't use it unless you MUST :D

Hi, that's a bummer about the cpcwiki domain...

Not sure if you're already aware of this, but now when editing a page with external links the captcha appears ok, but on submitting I just get a blank page with "Cannot open socket" at the top ???

Thanks for all the good work you're doing, BTW

Yes, I mentioned that in another thread; I had to reconfigure reCaptcha because of the domain change, and this is what happened. Can you try it again? I did something and it seems to work now, but it'd be great if you confirmed it...

Hmm no still not working... :(

PS would you mind adding an "announce" to the front page of the wiki that Robotron 6128 is complete and released now (http://cpcwiki.eu/index.php/Robotron_6128).

Cheers!

Woops forgot to reply the other day...

Well I'm still getting an error when trying to edit my wiki profile http://cpcwiki.eu/index.php?title=Lachlan_Keown.

See the bit down the bottom "insert facebook profile once can edit"?? Well, when I change that to [http://www.facebook.com/lachlankeown Facebook Profile], it asks me for captcha, then sends me to a blank page with "cannot open socket" message...

Hope that helps you resolve...

Damn (again)... The solution stopped working. I'm on it.

@Markus, can you ask the ISP if they're blocking connections to the ReCaptcha servers? I think the server is api-verify.recaptcha.net (sometimes called via https)...

No connections are blocked...
Maybe wiki has a blacklist? This is your job to check  ;)
