Web Portal Server Change – Another sleepless night

Well – I was paged again due to server issues at 10:30 PM last night – I am not getting much sleep. I have opted to move the web portals (note – these are NOT the ministry hosted sites, just the web portals – this is one of them) to a new hosting provider. I have been led to believe that the server needs more memory – and that my problems would go away if I had more memory. The new provider provides more memory, disk space and bandwidth for a little more than we are paying now, plus we get 50% off for the first six months. I will let you know how things progress. Please pray for the move to go smooth and that the new service meets our...

Comodo Software in the Commode?

The firewall started using 99% of the CPU power and all but stopped ALL the computers I had it installed on. Fortunatly the fix was easy, I uninstalled the Anti Virus/Firewall Software and reinstalled it. The computers are working fine. I have no idea what caused the problem on this specific day. Comodo Free Firewall won PC Magazine's “Editor's Choice.” Up until now I have had no problems and love the package. You can download it at: http://www.comodo.com./ On the bright side the servers seem to be stable.I had some rough times over the...

Emmanuel Baptist Church in Newland North Carolina

I received a call today from Pastor Mike Daley of Emmanuel Baptist Church in Newland North Carolina. The church has put up a web page and when he did a Google search our Unnofficial Web Site was the first listing. I put a link from the former Unofficial Site to his web page (http://www.ebcnewland.com) which will get them instant traffic, and seed the search engines with their new site (as does posting their URL here. Pastor Daley thanked us for our ministry./ I have been wrestling with the server (Web Portal – not the server where the church web pages are) most of yesterday and today. I am learning more about Linux than I wanted to! I think I have most of the issues...
