Im looking for some kind sole to donate some web space to host the 2 EduGeek Moodle Themes, any chance?
Wasn't Velox doing this?
Yeah, he was, not sure what's happened ... =/
DanIT; It might be worth signing up with someone like sf.net and taking advantage of their version control system (subversion), linked in webspace etc. - might be a little OTT at this time though!
I am doing this :S
We are sorting your problem as we speak dan.
I've sent you an email
Edit: we have moved to a new server and naturally had a few things to sort, your being sorted now dan if you would still like me to :S
Was that why your site died the other day with no links working etc?
New server feel any better?
The site 'died' the other day due to essential maintenance at the datacenter see: VeloxServ Communications - Announcements
New server was planned anyways, from dual core to quad core with double the ram..
Hm.. that doesn't stack up with the errors witnessed, main page was fine, all links threw a 404 (and yes, the server hostname was right.)
Oh well, not to dwell, glad the new one feels better, onwards and upwards =)
Are you talking about the edumoodle site throwing loads of errors?
Onwards and upwards indeed
This would not have been to do with the migration, as we did that yesterday.
We didn't get any issues reported at this time, all i can do is apologise for the downtime.
Free or not dan, if you have any problems tell me!

Basically I had reports from Edugeek.net users that my site was unavailable:
This was about 4pm 17th Jan 09, I didnt see this but other EduGeek users did.
Everything was working fine until a post made on moodle.org,
"Cant access your site or the download link" - 21st Jan 09 10.30am
And again today:
"If you click on your demo link you end up trying to install "Moodle" on your server!"
My inital thoughts were that the site had been hijacked (badly) as the config.php files had been removed from the 3 Moodle installations. It wouldnt suprise me the way I have Moodle setup is not exactly the most secure, permissions are all over the place. But thats my fault!
I tried to replace the config files (No big issue) but Moodle was throwing up errors about the Moodle database not being UTF8-Unicode, changing it to UTF8 didnt work. Think it was set to swedish??? Bit strange.....
Contacted VeloxServ, responded quickly, got the problems sorted, I think recompiled Apache and were up and running again!
I should also mention VeloxServ give me this webspace free of charge, Messa does a cracking job and has always done well by me. My site is not mission critical....I just wanted (in this thread) to find an alternative mirror for the zipped Moodle Themes.
The Themes are very popular!
Look: sloodle - Virtual Environment Learning System
Im getting around 1500 to 1900 hits average per day. Wonder what that really means ????? Anyone got any thoughts on that?
Little blip, but its all over now.......
I'll say this again, I get this excellent (1 blip in 4 months) service for free! Thanks!
Many Thanks Dan!
Good Post DanIT,
I think craig is doing an excellent job, i have been talking to him for about a month or 2 now regarding me transfering all my website's from my current server over to craigs. this is because before i took over the managment of these sites they were done by a guy who liked to use US servers.
Anyhow, myself and craig have been working together in the planning and preperation of the transfer and he has helped me allot, and his advice has been great.
There are about 80 sites in total, and 10 sites that are secure sites so its a big job. this will be happening around the 1st of February and i have no doubt in my mind the transfer to craig will go smoothly.
A bit of topic i know, but i just wanted to point out that his service is fantastic especially for a young company.
