  1. Thanks Phil. I didn't think it was likely to be easy! I wasn't going to move the dns servers. Simply create a copy of my site on a new server with a new domain name for my regular customers to use temporarily. As I have over 2000 items and no physical shop I haven't got a clue what I have or what they cost, so I can't fulfil sales manually. Many of my customers run businesses themselves so it was only about ensuring they remain happy. The host has been in touch, and explained the situation though it went over my head - some module or other! It would seem it was a physical failure, something broke! So nothing I did, nor anyone else. Just bad luck. Essentially they are trying to get the sites up without losing any data, but I presume that as that seems to be taking a while they would eventually resort to cutting their losses and just getting everyone back on line, I'm hopeful that will be very soon.

  2. Hi, My website is offline and has been for the past 24 hours. I have another blank domain name with hosting with another company. I have a tar.gz download which is apparently a complete back up of my website which I have obtained from my cpanel (which does still load). I have no clue how to open this file or how to upload it. I am hoping to somehow get this onto my new host, in the probably vain hope that I will have a functioning website to take orders while i'm awaiting some information on what has happened to my 'proper' website. Hopefully I'm not being completely unrealistic, but if anyone can talk me through any of this or advise me in anyway, it would be gratefully appreciated. thank you kellie
  3. Hi, That doesn't sound like good news! Im in the UK and the host is in the US, I don't even have the number and as i can't get on their site i wouldn't know how to obtain it. I'm not at all offay with all of this programming stuff, so don't really understand cpanel, though i'll take a look and see if there is anything I can do. I did try to go onto phpadmin but it wouldn't allow me, as obviously it couldn't connect to the database, so I'm guessing its going to be a non-starter? As i said i was contemplating going over to abante, but i don't think my database would even be compatible as there are so many alterations to it. Kellie
  4. Yes it is a long time. Perhaps they didn't notice? My site is very busy, so when I got up this morning and there were no orders I was immediately concerned, but there isn't a lot I can do I guess. I have considered re-doing my website, but I have made a lot of alterations to the database fields and found last time when I moved hosts, it didn't keep those alterations and made it very difficult for me. I had considered using abante carte as my partner thinks it is much easier, but really not sure. Oh well, ill go and find something to occupy myself that doesn't require money! lol Kellie
  5. Hi, I can get on my cpanel, but not my admin interface. I have just tried to do a 'support ticket' with my host and i get the same message so i presume my there is something wrong with it on the host end, as their database won't connect either? Kellie
  6. Hi, My website has been offline since sometime after 6pm yesterday (uk time!). I presume it is a server error, as I have not altered anything. can any advise. I have contacted the host, but not rec'd a reply. I'm just wondering how long I'm likely to be off line, as this is my only income and it doesn't bode well if I'm going to be shut for even a few days. its saying MySQL error, I don't know how to paste that into here, it doesn't seem to let me, www.sewingchest.co.uk Any reassurance would be appreciated! thank you Kellie
  7. So Jack, I'm presuming I don't have the GEO IP installed on my server then, seen as you are the host? And thank you frankl, that's actually reassuring. I did wonder what sadsack had logged on over 400 times! it does seem more likely that it s robot or scritp rather than a person, though it makes one wonder what the scritpt is for. Maybe just likes to use up bandwidth and just be generally annoying and worrysome!! thank you
  8. Is there a way to block 'Russia' through my control panel - i.e a super quick way without adding any code. Rather worried something might go wrong in the interim!
  9. Hi, I don't know how to see the ip's, or block russia. I will try the 'view counter' and see if i can install that. thanks kellie
  10. Hi, I've had a huge amount of 'customers' creating an account. They are not genuine, unless they live in a very very big house, as they generally use the same addresses, They usually put 'apple' or 'Microsoft' as their company and use the surnames: Vigorda, Ken, Olivier, Holland. I have literally deleted around 100 in the last few days. Sometimes they have logged onto their account 400-500 times! I think they are probably Russian as they often use .ru as their email. What on earth are they up to, and how do I stop these people creating an account. I'm not happy about them being on my site, as they are obviously up to no good! Kellie
  11. Hi, Sorry if i seem a bit thick, but the latest version of oscommerce doesn't seem to suggest its the bootstrap/responsive site. Can anyone point me to the link for the latest install, and only if it has everything one needs to start a new store from scratch, i.e must have a paypal payment option on there without the need for hours of programming. I already use oscommerce, but a friend is about to give it a go, and have just installed a version via the apps installer on cpanel, but unfortunately the login/password don't seem to be recognised so already reached a bit of a stop. Thought i might as well check what the most up to date version is before we attempt to erase and re-install. thanks Kellie
  12. Hi, This contribution looks perfect, but with 13 pages of comments/errors/updates I'm a little worried it might be too complicated for me! Essentially my site is already a mess due to the clumsy addition of a dresscode theme. Is this contribution difficult for a non-programmer to do, and is it likely to 'break' my live site if i do something wrong? Windows 10 has just 'updated' my pc, and resets my printer on a document to the last printer i used. I usually have one file open to copy/paste my label info to, whihc is then sent to a thermal printer (small labels), and my invoices go off to my brother A4 printer. Now if I have to change the printer setting each time to the one i want as it no-long saves the printer choice for the document. Hence the reason i need a batch printing method! thanks Kellie
  13. Hi, Pretty sure there isn't any admin switch. I used to remove the yellow paypal button and you do have to edit the code.
  14. Scrap that! I did get this to work on a brand new unmodded install, but on my live website, which is now fully up to date, this fix doesn't work. There are actually numerous places/files which mention the Street_address, but fail to mention company or suburb. I have tried to add these in, and still it carries the address, minus the company and second line of address. If anyone has come up with a solution please let me know
  15. Hi, Czymborjeff@gmail.com did you ever figure this out? I got the same error. Messed about for ages with it. There were spelling errors in a couple of the files though, but even after fixing them, same error (a few places title was spelt 'titel') Given up! But MrPhil, I did want a simple blog - just for news, like 'blah blah fabric back in stock!' etc Kellie
