  • issue with searching/links


    I just recently started EQ again, so I'm not sure how long this has been the case, but from the main site, search functionality doesn't work, and most of the links give this error:

    " This page isnít working is currently unable to handle this request.

    HTTP ERROR 500"

    Welcome back!

    We had a rough week last week, with our hosting provider mucking with DNS, then once that was fixed, mucking with out servers and such. They ended up updating us to a different version of PHP that broke both sites, and then did something to break all pre Aug. 2 posts on the EQ2 forums, etc., etc., etc. The House Ogre got things up and running for a few days with some frantic recoding, but we still can't always access our site editing tools at the moment. We're still not sure what was done to break our EQ site (but not the EQ2 site) THIS time today, but we're looking into it.

    ~Mum the frustrated (not frustrated with you for reporting, frustrated at our hosting provider and the site ;P)

          It sounds like the EQ site was probably coded with older php commands to connect to or converse with the databases. This will definitely be fixable I would think but the EQ2 site might be working as it could have been written with newer php code that hasn't yet become obsolete. Can be a minefield finding each part of code depending on how neatly it was originally coded. Hope you guys get it sorted soon, not least because working my way to 350 is impossible without this wonderful resource!

            This has been going on a few days ...seems all we get is the side menu and header and a search bar but all the links stall out ...excepts this one to the boards

              Sadly, it will keep going on until probably the weekend, as Ngreth will need to do the recoding, and he's kind of sort of busy with his day job. He said he "may" be able to work on it tonight, but we're expecting Saturday to be more likely.

                Velisaris suggested the following over on the official EQ forums:

                The Wayback Machine has a snapshot of the site from a few months ago, for people that really need their tradeskill fix:

                The search won't work, but you can get lists of recipes and links to the materials. Between that and Google's cached pages for specific items, it should tide everyone over until it's up and running again.

                  Appears from work at least that we seem to be back in operation. Crossing fingers and doing the praise House Ogre dance just in case.

                  - Coa

                    Thanks to all, the site is looking good again.

                    However, noting that known recipes are not filling where they should be.

                      Site is up for me but not showing any recipes, they are left blank and missing the item info required.

                        Whoops! Well, baby steps. I'll let him know about the recipes ...

                            I don't know if this is related to the earlier issues, but when I do a search, it is not giving me the next page of results. For example, I searched for 'ether' and it says "1 to 0 of 121" and no navigation buttons. I tried in normal search and advanced. I also tried in Chrome and Firefox.

                              Yes, it is related. I'll poke the ogre about it. Please keep the reports coming in as it is quite the hunt to find the stray underlying issues. Every bug chased down tends to reveal yet more issues, it seems. :O
