Re: TextDrive officially dead

What we need first is a dedicated server administrator, as part of the core team, with access to some good scalable hardware. It’d never even get started without someone like that in place.

But we don’t even have ownership of Textpattern domain or brand, so don’t get your hopes up. I could rage on about certain previous project members, but I won’t.

Frustrating.

If Txp’s installation process was made more robust (properly handled Exceptions, etc) there’s no reason I can see why hosted installs couldn’t become a reality. It’d still need some kind of scripting element to create DBs and handle creating config.php.

Do we have the bandwidth?

I would think we have the bandwidth to do this. There is also the housekeeping scripts to cleanup txp_logs as well.

Reminds me we need to get the projects domains into the projects hands. I’ll ask about that next time the person who shall not be named asks me another question.

Re: TextDrive officially dead

Thanks Jacques. When we’ve all got a bit of spare time maybe we could get the core devs together and have a chat about an official Textpattern hosting model. Maybe it’s not feasible or not any value, but it’s worth exploring the options.

Re: TextDrive officially dead

WHAT THE HECK!!!!

I don’t visit the forums that often and I just got an email from a client saying his site was down! I checked and all of my TxD hosted sites are down and then I find this thread?! I can’t even connect via FTP. No warning at all…. no email? nothing!? (except a forum post?!)

How do I go about getting my files and DB off the server?
