Missing site, 404 server down?
« on: March 26, 2013, 05:12:26 PM »
Hi all , can I ask if anyone is experiencing connection problems in the last 24 hrs? For a good while all home computers I pad I phones were  unable to access  - eg site not found / site moved/ URL 404. Fearful I may struggle to connect again....Is it just me?

I had problems also and scarily followed some technical instructions which made no difference at all. A great relief to find it was not only my computer!!

Hi Gilly, all, yes I was on the verge of following some URL repair advice which looked rather too technical for me!
The worry was I had no way of checking anything out, all members who I had shared e mails with we're accessible via e mail but only via the site, which was gone! Couldn't check if it was just me.  Can't recall this happening before.

I find these messages misleading. Past experience has taught me that this message usually means the site you want to go to is inaccessible for one reason or another! The instructions seem a bit drastic!

If in doubt refer to the San Stefanos Travel page on Facebook (if you are on it) and see if anyone else has posted about any problems with the site . From previous experiences when the site has gone down for whatever reason several SS regulars post about it and also post when the site is back up again.

A 404 error usually means that the client (your browser) connected to the server, but the server could not link to the specified base page.

This can be caused by:

* an error by the website manager when updating the site pages
* the host ISP having set it to reject the link (bill not paid?)
* an internal error on the server, usually caused by a faulty system update

There's nothing you can about it, so don't waste time with wrong advice on the web. If you own the site, you get onto the ISP and find out what's happening.

Thanks for the advice Jimbo, will be more patient if it happens again, just realised that all e mail chains, pm's etc were reliant upon the server. Contacts with friends on the site should perhaps be backed up by other means.
