OldPete Posted May 9, 2022 Share Posted May 9, 2022 Been running osCommerce since 2002 or 2003 -- can't remember... at Pair.com Site has run well all these years. Great relationship. Rarely needed support, but when I did, they were there and it was handled quickly. Fast forward to this weekend... out of the blue the site is down... Ok! No problem, let see what's going on - after "checking" they tell me that they had to "lock" my DB -- but they can't tell me why - only that were queries that were taking too long and bogging down the DB server. Fair enough! Let's test it and see what's up! We can't duplicate it. They can't tell me what time it happened, they can't tell much of anything except for a list of the queries, which I had no problem accessing. I tell them to please unlock and let's monitor it - if it happens again, PLEASE let me know right away so we can find out what happened. Nope. The next day they lock it down. No warning, no info. Nothing. I get lucky and they unlock it yet again -- this time with the understanding that although I don't want to leave, it's clear they don't want me there. That's fine. So I set my sights on a new host and happen upon TMD (recommended by osCommerce). Well... so far that's been one mistake after the next. They tell me it's migrated and that I can test - however I can't access it to test it. (using IP domain.com www.domain.com via host file in PC dir)... They get that working, so I can see the index page, and some pages, but none of the pages for categories, items, etc. Is this part of how things are now? Miserable, I tell you. They said they specialize in osCommerce. LOL. Anyone else to try? Thanks for reading all that. More of a vent, but... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
