QB64 down ?

Postby Mulles » Fri Jul 14, 2017 10:30 am

Hi,

I can't access the Forum and WIKI of qb64.net.
(WIN10, Firefox).
Anybody knowing some more?

Regards
Mulles

QB64.net has been down for a week or more. I emailed Galleon with no reply.

Thank you for your reply,
even if it is not a happy one.
I was particular interested in the SQLITE.DLL and its use in QB64.
I dropped the MYSQL features because of the massive overkill for a simple local application.

Anyway I am hoping for a speedy recovery (of Galleon).

I noticed that qb64.net has been down for a long time. But at least until just recently, you could still reach the download page, even if forums and wiki were unavailable. Now I can't even get to the code.

I was wondering whether this is just another long outage, as we've had before, or whether it's Galleon gearing up whatever new version he has been working on? Gets worrisome, though, when it's out for so long, with no explanation. Would be nice to have some kind of brief message when trying to reach the site, at least.

If you look at the daily builds, they haven't been updated since May 18, and the uploads themselves stopped on 24 June, which is worrying.

EDIT (11:17): I have just tried to download the zip file for Windows, and it worked for me

Galleon contacted me and said he will fix the site soon.

Site wiki and forum are all ok now

Galleon has posted an explanation on the forum!
