Gallery moving: IMPORTANT!!!

Post  stephster17 on Fri May 21, 2010 1:48 am

Hello ladies! Our current hosting for the gallery is up for renewal on Saturday and I just can't afford it anymore, plus being without credit card make the payment process frustrating for me! I have found a cheaper hosting service, that is Canadian, which also makes payment issues easier for me. I will be closing the current gallery tomorrow morning, and downloading all of the files. We MAY be without a gallery for a couple of days, this might cause some issues regarding Crop & Chat this weekend, I am hoping everyone has a photobucket or other image hosting account to minimize problems, and apologize for the inconvenient timing. I would ideally like to have it back up and running on the new server tomorrow but I don't think this will be possible, I have dr. appt tomorrow morning, work tomorrow evening, Austin's birthday party and out-of-town family visiting Saturday and work again on Sunday, so Monday is the most realistic time frame, but I will try for earlier if I can find the time!

Thank you for your understanding!

We can still post our C&C pages on the C&C thread and put them in the new gallery at the first of the week. What happens to partially completed charms? We have links on our tally for the pages in the old gallery but we will finish the charms with page links from the new gallery. So are we on our honor with the completion of the charms or do we have to start them over? I have a few that are not done that I started and didn't finish during the last couple of stressful months. I am just curious. I have never had to switch to a new gallery before.

Karen, if all goes according to plan, which I pray it does, everything that is in this gallery will move to the new one. Unfortunately, since it's a new server and new URL the links will be "broken" in your tallies. BUT it should be easy to fix, and all you will need to change is the links to your most current pages.


I am closing the current gallery NOW

Just thought I'd pop in with a little update....I downloaded the gallery files on Friday morning (WOW, over 12000 files!!) and then uploaded them to the new server while I was sleeping on Friday night. So far we are not back up and running, the files uploaded but the gallery isn't showing up. The new server does say that it takes up to 72 hours to get everything set up on their end, and the 72 hour mark is still a few hours away, so hopefully when I wake up in the morning it will all be working smoothly....cross your fingers ladies!! LOL! If not I will contact their support team tomorrow and make sure we get things working ASAP!

Thanks Deanna, I'm so frustrated, this really shouldn't have taken so long. I did get the files uploaded successfully this time, but there is still an issue actually accessing them. I have emailed the support again and I have been quite impressed with how quickly they have been responding, so hopefully they can help me get this next issue sorted and we'll be done very soon!

Don't get over-stressed, Steph. We know that you are trying to get the gallery working as quickly as you can. We still have Photobucket to help while you work on it.
