Sluggishness - posted 4 March 2013, 10:22 amHi all,
I'm aware of the site's sluggishneses lately - vaCentral has been blowing up! It's a great thing. With that, I'm in the middle of rewriting vaCentral, based on nodejs instead of PHP, along with optimizing a ton of things, and a new design. It's tough finding time in between my 70+ hour work weeks, but it's in progress, and I haven't abandoned y'all
Potential Downtime - posted 28 October 2012, 4:04 pmHi all,
With Hurricane Sandy on her way, there is a possibility of phpVMS and vaCentral being down, with the datacenter being located in New Jersey.
If this happens, ensure that your site has the VACENTRAL_ENABLE set to 'false' in the local.config.php, until the site is back up.
Let's hope it's just the weatherman being wrong!

Security Fix released for 2.1.x - posted 24 August 2012, 4:00 pmA small patch to fix a security flaw has been released; it applies to version 2.1.934 and below. It doesn't apply to any of the beta versions. Replace the admin/index.php and admin/action.php files. Thanks for Jacob Axford for finding and bringing the flaw to my attention.
The updated version is now 2.1.935.
Recent Downtime - posted 28 February 2012, 12:31 pmHi all,
As you've definately noticed, phpVMS and vaCentral have been down. While I'm still tracking down the cause, I believe it to be malicious in nature.
As of now, avatars and forum attachments are unavailable, until the backup recovery completes.
The documentation above is also unavailable until some certain pieces of data are recovered.
I don't have an ETA on the completion of recovery. But, over the next few weeks, I will be bringing back online vaCentral and the main phpVMS site - while I'm not sure of any data loss, I don't believe there to be any. I will keep you all in the loop of far as the progress.
Thanks all for your patience.
Even though phpVMS is free, there are still many costs, including server and hosting costs for new and upcoming features. Any amount will be greatly appreciated!
