Gallery Offline

Posted by Zelie | On: Jun 13 2011

I know I’ve been inactive on the site.  I’ve been doing my best to keep up on Twitter, though, so be sure to visit that page even if you aren’t a follower.  I just wanted to update you guys on a recent site change. For right now, and hopefully it is just extremely temporary, I have taken the image gallery offline.  I received a warning from my host that the database it runs on has continuously exceeded the alloted queries.  I haven’t been able to curb the number, yet, and I’ve tried a few things. I’m at a loss. If anyone has any similar database or Coppermine issues, please feel free to share! (E-mail, comment, Twitter, etc.)

I’m going to continue to do research.  If the gallery is just simply too busy for no malicious reason or scripting error, then I will have to find a way to slow down the traffic.  This will probably mean locking it to registered users only.  I hate doing that, but it may be the only option to keep this site up.  If at all possible, I’m thinking of trying to leave certain albums unlocked — maybe the newest ones or something.  Any suggestions are welcome.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Just want to say I really appreciate your site and the gallery. I can tell you put a lot of work into it. Good luck getting it back online – I check in daily to see what’s new. :-)
