What happened to www.chezgreg.net?
« on: September 21, 2003, 08:32:42 am »

Hi folks,

we have finally gone "online" with the "new" coppermine support board;

I just wanted to explain why we're here and what this site is about:

What happened to the "original" coppermine website at www.chezgreg.net:
Greg, the author of coppermine, has disappeared. Meanwhile, his webhosting contract has expired, so the site went down. We (some guys interessted in the continuation of the project) have formed a dev team, registered the project at sourceforge.net and are about to continue development on the software.
We have asked the webhost (ovh) of www.chezgreg.net to grant us access to the database, but they can't do that without the consent of Greg, so we have no other choice than to start from scratch and build a new site and community.

We need your help and support for that - please contribute and give us your feedback on the new Coppermine support board we have set up.

Hosting Help
« Reply #5 on: September 27, 2003, 12:27:20 am »

Well I would be willing to give him hosting for little or no cost if that would help.  What kind of space and traffic (bandwidth) are we talking about?  I don't want to see coppermine have issues as I fine it to be an excellent script and I use it a lot.

I can be reached at admin@armedforcesconnect.net

I'm from Austria, I would also like to support by donating. So it may be a good idea to use a system that is avaiable worldwide.

*great script*

I can provide hosting
« Reply #7 on: September 28, 2003, 07:37:02 am »

GauGau and others,

I will soon  (2-3 weeks) upgrade my hosting reseller account to 2GB disk and 24GB bandwidth, most of which I won't use in the forseeable future.

I can provide all the necessary space and bandwidth for Coppermine, as well as access to PHP, MySQL, FTP and all the standard tools on a web hosting service. I'm also willing to delegate full administration privileges to whoever wants to take responsibility for managing the web site.

GauGau you have my email, please contact me if you want me to host Coppermine.

EZ.

heh.. great offer but it's only a relatively small site.  I can't imagine CPG would require that kind of size unless we get slashdotted or something, which would be remotely possible.

CPG's running off sf.net for now and moving again would be a pain for a lot of people.

However, I could *ahem* think of a few other non-related uses for it though *grin*...

@Mathibus - you probably know soccer: I had to show the yellow card to you on the old board; I show it to you here on the new board. The next card in soccer will be the red one - you know what that means :x !
We all are concerned about Greg, and as stated on many occasions (faq, postings here on this board) we're trying everything to find out. A little more tact would be absolutely required!

 What is wrong with Greg's site? Every request throws back a 403; I have sent him an email, but he has not replied yet. Has anyone been able to reach him?

 That is unfortunate, but I see that GauGau's FAQs have been transferred to Source Forge. I also see that this question was added to the list, so I apologize for cluttering up the public board. Let us hope Greg is okay.

-----------------------------------------

To whom it may concern:

Someone sent me a private message shortly before the site went down. I got the notification, but I was not able to read the message, so I have no idea who you are. If you feel it was important enough to send again, please use Source Forge to contact me.

------------------------------------------

Would it be possible to contact ovh.net/ovh.com and ask them why the site's permissions have been set to block all users? They might know what happened to Greg.

I would, but I don't speak French. I can only imagine how a Babelfish translated email would read.

[size=18]moorey managed to extend Greg's webhosting contract for one year (hooray!).
This means: soon www.chezgreg.net will go up again, but we have no means (yet) to administer this domain.
We'll inform people there of what happened (with "regular" postings).

As we have no means to administer www.chezgreg.net, please don't post there - only use the support board at chezgreg.net for reference (once it's up)!
