Hello all,

As a solution to our FTP server space issues, we will soon have a new FTP server among the forum.

It will have on it:

250GB of disk space
2.1TB of transfer per month

and hopefully we can upgrade when we want as we want, unlike the current dedicated server which has fixed hardware.

Because of this new server I am asking people if they could kindly donate a pound/dollar or two, or what they can, when they can, to help keep this server online. Remember that it will store all of the betas we currently have, so losing it is not an option.

I thank everyone for their support in advance.

Andy (Admin)

Its going to be about 24 hours before the server is available to people. Unfortunately it looks like this will be HTTP based since the host doesn't allow permissions to be set on the FTP accounts. However, this isnt much of a drawback I don't think.

Thank you to all those people who have donated so far. We now have enough in the piggybank for the first 2 months of the hosting.

Right, this is going to be a HTTP based server, but it will have password protection on it. Again the password will change randomly and be displayed in the server's section.

The download speeds seem poor on both HTTP and FTP unless using a download manager. Ill compile a small list of download managers soon.

Upload will be via FTP. FTP Permissions cannot be set so it means I can't offer an Download account. It only takes one idiot to delete the lot.

I am currently having upload problems on the new FTP so it seems it won't be available today as I promised. Sorry :(

I keep getting "too many connections (10) for your host" when Im not even connected! No one else has the password so it can not be accessed by anybody but me and the hosting company.

Ill keep you all updated.

Finally got this issue sorted out to an extent, but I can now only connect with one connection at a time. This means the max transfer speed is about 200KB/s, not 1200KB/s.

Its going to take about 3 days to upload the rest of the files with one connection. Unfortunately because Im uploading directly to the download folder I cant open it yet because a lot of people may try to download incomplete files.

Ill keep you updated.

Good news! The FTP server is finally fixed and I can now upload files properly at the full 10Mbps speed the server allows. I estimate 8 hours before the server is ready for access. Hopefully much less.

Thanks everyone for your patience. I did hope to have it done sooner.
