Yes, I get this message. So, I went to a search engine (iwon.com) and did a search on "websleuths". I then clicked on the link that was provided and it brought me into the forum. I still can't get to the front page, though.

My saved link has always been to the forums page. I've not visited the main page in eons. I'll go try that now, and see what happens.

Sprocket
12-26-2003, 12:38 PM
Yes River. When you hit the HOME link, at the top of the FORUMS main page, that link takes you to a FORBIDDEN MESSAGE PAGE.

So, that would be happening for everyone who tries to reach WS through the main page, and not through a saved forums page link.

Right...what Sprocket said....

My saved link works fine to the forum.

River I got it this morning. I figured out how to get in, but the title page is missing along with some forums.

Yesterday I was getting the same message all afternoon. I was able to finally ascertain the following as the direct URL to take me to the main forums page. It was nothing clever I did to find it. I clicked on an old page I had saved with some Thanksgiving recipies and and found myself back in unexpectedly. I then checked the properties of the new page and came up with this URL that works:

http://websleuths.com/forums/index.php?s=

It will take you directly to the forum index.

If you changed the DNS it may take 24 hours or so for it to work through the Internet pipeline.

River
12-26-2003, 12:45 PM
I don't have access to the front page or a few other admin things. So I don't have access to the DNS lines, etc. We haven't started to move the site yet. A few other things need to be done first.

It will all work out. I just needed to know if anyone could access it or not. That means that it's gone, gone gone.


At this point, all I can do is laugh!

River, where ever your registered www.websleuths.com, fax them with what ever papers you need, to show the correct email address, yours, so that you can go in, online and change the DNS pointers yourself.

(I did this with register.com for my web sites, when I needed to change the access email, so I could redirect the DNS...)

I don't come here thru the mainpage, but I checked it out. I'm getting the same error message, too.

I was able to get in, through a Laci Forum link I saved, this one:

Yeeaaaahhhhhh!!!! You're found again. You probably already know WS was lost in cyber space for a brief time again this p.m. After I posted my last note on this thread, this is the message I got no matter how I tried to access the site:

"Warning: mysql_connect(): Access denied for user: 'admin@localhost.localdomain' (Using password: YES) in /home/virtual/site1/fst/var/www/html/forums/admin/db_mysql.php on line 40

There seems to have been a slight problem with the database.
Please try again by pressing the refresh button in your browser.

An E-Mail has been dispatched to our Technical Staff, who you can also contact if the problem persists.

We apologise for any inconvenience."

Anyway, glad that brief disappearance is over!

I received the same notice Aperture did, just about an hour or so ago. But I waited awhile and got back in. Glad it seems to be fixed.

I was in earlier through my bookmark. I have the main forums page bookmarked. From there, I can quickly pick my forum. I got the forbidden message later when I tried to log back in. Then also what aperature got, I also got. I just got back through a link from purgatory. I was curious and remembered that we were to go there while our forum was down before. There was a link which led me to google and I linked with the Laci Peterson forum and WAAAALAAAA. HERE I AM.

Do I dare log off? I should probably keep WS on minimize all day. Thanks River, and all the mods. I love you all. Keep us posted River.

Bella
12-26-2003, 03:02 PM
Yes, River I get it too. It began sometime last night? I did a work around by going to a search engine and typing in Websleuths forums and got in that way...

River, I sure hope all works out.

Add me to the list....I get the above message when I try to access my usual way...had to use a different link to get here.

Yes to all the above. I thought you had closed down the site as the first error stated there was some problem with files in the data base. So for some reason went to google and here you were. Thought you had re-opened the site. I am happy River you are keeping the site. Peace

I don't know why this didn't work for you. It should take you to the Laci forum; I just tried it and it took me there. Hummmm.

River I have also been getting both the same errors as the other posters on thread. Thank goodness I saved a thread in my bookmarks otherwise I wouldn't of been able to get back into ws.

This doesn't work for me, either. Tried using the link directly and copy/paste, also. But then, I'm willing to wiggle, wobble or even waddle just to get here! :)

As long as you've been trained to go outside, you can stay. :D

I also got the "Forbidden" message.
I thought I was either banned, or WS was closed. I was lurking on FFJ and saw a link. Boy, was I surprised!! I was so happy!!:)

12-27-2003, 01:41 AM
I got an e-mail from someone on the forum who thought it was already closed because she was getting an Access Denied message with the main page.

But I've saved the link directly to the Laci Forum, and I haven't been denied, so I told her to come in that way. Here is the link I use:

http://207.36.4.219/forums/forumdisplay.php?s=&forumid=3

There's no telling how manyh people are trying to get here, and they think the forum is off-line right now. Is there any way you could send everyone an e-mail, River, letting them know there is another way in? The person I spoke to was pretty upset and sad.

Animal: If they'll let a fox in, then you should get in, too. That is only fair. Just don't turn into a werewolf, like I did, or they will send you packing, LOL.:evil:

Me too, River. I was bookmarked to the front page and, on Christmas morning, I stopped by to catch up, only to read your message that you were closing the forum. Then later in the day, I came back to post only to get the forbidden message too! I thought you'd made good on your intention. But then Jayelles posted a viable link today on FFJ that redirected me and voila! Here I am.

Later today, while trying to post at FFJ, a similar thing is happening at THAT forum. You can read the threads but when you hit submit to post a reply, you get a message that there seems to be "something wrong" with the FFJ database. The message directs to hit the refresh button, but that doesn't work to post replies either. I've emailed Tricia....

Funny that all of a sudden there are problems at 2 of the 3 anti-Ram forums, eh? Could this be coincidental to the Fox lawsuit just filed?

Ivy
12-27-2003, 07:06 PM
Like DejaNu, I got the forbidden message and had to use the link Jayelles posted at FFJ to finally get here. (Thanks, Jayelles!)
