SpringFiles website down ?

Post by Sebby »

This isn’t about SpringEngine specifically, but it’s related because it’s one of the main repositories for maps and software builds.

The website seems to have a serious problem since yesterday. It seems like someone didn’t pay the hosting bill because all I see is the hosting provider splash screen, out of the box.

Can someone here contact the website owners and let them know ? Or am I missing something here (being new) ?

thanks

More than down though.... it looks like the website is completely wiped out, not a 404.

the dns entry of springfiles.com is wrong. it should point to 37.187.92.174 but isn't. i've notifed the owner, but i'm out of control of this.

i can only wait and ... lets see what happens.

It appears it's finally fixed.

Both api.springfiles.com and paste.springfiles.com seem to be working now.

EDIT:
wait, the images for some of the items are missing (but not others).

meh, i tried to fix it, the migrations were out of my control :-|

this whole thing should get replaced by a single upload page and auto generated content pages.

sending mails on springfiles.com is broken: so new user registrations aren't possible. IMHO its not fixable because it runs on inside some home-like network.
