Mirrors wreaking havoc with images?

14 posts in this topic

Lately I've noticed that a lot of images are missing. Avatars seem to be disappearing left and right, and the images Sammy attached to the "guy falls into netting at Yankee Stadium" thread aren't there, causing an error to be produced when you click on the thumbnails to view the full-sized images. Is this because of the server mirrors?

Yea Rowdy, there is several HTTP servers, but they all feed from the same database server. Essentially uploading an image will only get fed to one of the HTTP servers. So if you land on the one without it, the image X's out.

The servers are ending pretty soon, it should clear up .

Any idea when this should clear up? I haven't seen my own avatar since I uploaded it, and I want to make sure I didn't just screw something up. Thanks! :D

The server is back to one. I would reupload the avatar, it was probably on one of the mirrors. Sorry about that.

Hrmm...I'm getting an error message when trying to upload an avatar:

Board Message

Sorry, an error occurred. If you are unsure on how to use a feature, or don't know why you got this error message, try looking through the help files for more information.

The error returned was:

The upload failed. Please contact a member of staff to help rectify the problem

Man, that error message was useless! I just uploaded a test image with no problems. Can you describe the image RD, or maybe just AIM me.

Yeah, I've been getting that same error message. I was trying to upload my current avatar (and the Kool-Aid one I had before that); I finally gave up and hosted it remotely.

Can you ping njdevs.com and tell me what IP it is telling you?

Still trying to figure this one out. I think it has something to do with the file permissions, they must have gotten screwed up in the file swapping we just did.

Whenever you figure it out DM, could ya let me know? I've been battling the error message RD posted... and I've been doing so for some time now! I feel very... un-me without an avatar. :D

No rush! :)

OK, I gave up and emailed tech support. The file paths were wrong, it was changed from home to home2 during the mirror situation.

Avatars are working again, sorry for the delay!
