NOTICE: GRAMPS USER SITES HOSTED IN OUR LIBRARY SYSTEM WILL SOON BE REMOVED TO TRY TO KEEP US IN LINE WITH OUR HOSTING SERVICES' REQUIREMENTS... Some of you may know we've had troubles over the last few days with our hosting service. Two issues have been identified - server load and total number of files. We're working to try to sort out the server load issue (you will notice that the wiki is currently unavailable...) The number of files issue relates primarily to the hosting of user sites that we do, as seen as http://library.gramps-project.org - it has more than 150,000 files in it... That directory on its own puts us offside with the hosting service, with immediate impact that they will not include our site in their backup routines. Reluctantly, it appears that we will have to remove all of these user sites. I hope that we can, over time, offer alternatives. But the short answer just now is that they will be deleted just as soon as I have taken a full and accurate backup. Presumably, these sites are simply 'snapshots' of each users' current Gramps work. You should, that is, already have copies of your site on your own machine. If there are any issues with this, you can contact me directly. On behalf of the project team, I apologise for (1) having to withdraw the service and (2) having to do it in such an abrupt and sudden manner. It has not been our first choice of process, for sure! Apologies to all
