The forum has been down for a while. Can someone contact t00fri so he can fix it?

I don't think it is a CM issue, must be an ibiblio issue. This server is the same of Motherlode. Same problems on both AFAIK.
Never at rest.

Hi everyone,

I am aware of the problem, but haven't found a solution yet. As far as I can say, it is indeed an ibiblio issue. Just noted that the Motherlode works again. So if anyone knows what they did to revive their site, please let me know here!

Here is what I get upon dialling Celestial Matters:

Return to index page

General Error

SQL ERROR [ mysqli ]

mysqlnd cannot connect to MySQL 4.1+ using the old insecure authentication. Please use an administration tool to reset your password with the command SET PASSWORD = PASSWORD('your_existing_password'). This will store a new, and more secure, hash value in mysql.user. If this user is used in other scripts executed by PHP 5.2 or earlier you might need to remove the old-passwords flag from your my.cnf file [2000]

An sql error occurred while fetching this page. Please contact an administrator if this problem persists.

I am a bit worried that I may not be able to access the forum again... Otherwise I would've created my account there for nothing! :sad:

I am confident that my CM site will resume operation in a while :smoke: . Until now, CM operation could always be restored in case of rare occasional problems...

I'll surely continue investigating. Notably, I'll try to seek help with one of the Ibiblio Admins.

Cheers

Also, there was a problem with the Celestia Motherlode that when you tried to look at the information of an addon, it got to a page that said there was an error.

Yes, this error also still persists. Thanks for pointing it out! I am not associated with the Motherlode staff, however.

As to the Celestial Matters error, I have posted for help by an Ibiblio Admin...Waiting for a reply

Cheers
