HOSTING PROVIDER CHANGES

Post by bjcollin » Wed May 16, 2018 1:09 am

Our board was knocked offline at the end of April 2018 because our contract with our last web host provider Webnet77 ended. We loved being with Webnet77 for many years as they were a Christian based web host provider. However, our board status required payment to continue to renew the contract, so I opted to not renew the contract....

After almost a month of down time, I decided to host the website and board on my own private linux server at my home here in San Antonio TX. It took me some preparation and many late nights of configuring the server correctly to host the board... but the result is that we will have a FREE website host here on my linux server as long as I am here to keep it up. yea.

If you experience any issues with this new server configuration, or some board features aren't working like they used to, please give me a holler via IM, Email, or posting in the questions section. Please note that I am working out the kinks and permissions problems daily every evening as I find them, but it seems to be stable for now. Thank you.

in Christ,

Per one of the last requests we had last year, to install HTTPS secure website controls to the board... DONE.

Go to https://www.tehillahdreams.com

When you press the button to enter the board it will be the secure https version. Since I just installed it tonight, and this is a new feature, please let me know if it works and you see the green secure lock icon or if you get red and unlocked and if so what error message you get. Thank you.

in Christ,
