Title: contest?
Post by J. Davidson Hero on Jul 7th, 2014, 11:28pm

When I try to go to the contest page (anotherealm.org)  I get an error message which has been there for a few days.  :(  Here's the error:

A problem has occurred on our server!

Page is currently unavailable

We are working on a fix
Please come back soon ...

Error : Unable to connect to database

Yes, I also noticed it...probably some update of the site or a partial and temporary server crash at the moment...? :)

It is an upgrade to the site which had an unexpected side effect.

We are working on it but it might take a bit to get it fixed up.

Please be patient.

The site is back up but there is a scripting error that needs tracked down so I can do some much needed story updates. Still working on it......

Looks like I am painted into a corner here.

On one side the main program needed updated for security reasons.
On the other side the module that was running the articles section or contest stories, doesn't seem to work under the new upgrade. It is noted that there may be compatibility issues. And so there we are.

I'm not able to rewrite the module from scratch and can't seem to find any patch for it so it looks like the contest section is down until we can find something else to replace it.

Which also means compatible with the database that the present stories are in.

Hmm.... This is getting complicated at a pretty fast clip.

So for now, contest stories are still there but there won't be any new ones for a bit.
