My Website
« on: January 24, 2020, 01:03:40 PM »
I'm in all sorts of trouble with my website or more specifically the servers it runs on. It was tied to our IP address and that changed yesterday when our router got changed so now I can't even FTP onto the server..

It was great while it lasted but I am utterly clueless as to what to do to host a website on a VPS. TechMonkey dealt with all that side of things.

if it disappears there's sweet FA I can do about it until I get chance to speak to the hosting company.

I do however have control of the website addresses I gained control of them over the weekend. The URL's registered at Namecheap are now In my name.

I'm not clue'd up on VPS but I've been with a hosting company for over a decade now and they're very good and reliable so if you can't find anyone to help pop over to https://bellonline.co.uk/

Things have gone south quicker than I'd anticpated. Now Microsoft have locked me out of email.

Like I said TechMonkey dealt with teh Microsoft accounts. I may lose access to nameservers soon.

My website will be on a Hiatus until well after his funeral next week. No ETA as to how or when its likely to be back. It needs an overhaul to say the least.

Take some time Gary...
If we can't figure out the VPS etc there's always a hosting company...

Have you done a backup of your sql database ?

That's good, so even if you need to sort a new website out, you'll still have all the information :)

After yesterday's attempts at trying to install a web server and wordpress. I can safely say I know bugger all about Linux.

I'm definitely going to have to let the VPS go on the 10th Feb (Thats what its paid up until)

Just tried to get my WordPress database to install on the MariaDB server on my PC and I keep gettingmessages about Packets being to large. Its only a 50MB file.

I've Googled and even the first few posts I looked at were no help and didn't fix the issue.

If your truly stuck Gary goto BellOnline
Depending how much bandwidth your site uses will depend on package you need but they start from £2 per month and you get cPanel so you can install wordpress within cPanel, you'll have to point your domain nameservers to their server though.

Hardly any disk space with most of their plans... My The smallest is way too small the 1000mb still isn't enough and that's £4.00 a month plus I need slightly more traffic than they allow you to have, don't think I'll bother.

Do you work for them or something?

I got given some good news by the VPS host the servers paid up until August I guess that gives me some breathing space.
