I would be interested to find out what the problem was, Quite probably it was something I did Undecided
But at the time the forum went down I was editing the Web Site pages, and as far as I can tell that is seperate from the forum, it is only the links that connect the two together.

I gather BT or "Bengal Telecome" as I now call them after the debarcle with the helpline yesterday, they were updating there server about the time it all went wrong Angry

Chances are good that what happened was, they were changing things with the server (which you didn't know about), you panicked, thinking you did something to wreck things without knowing it was actually them, and fixed things into oblivion.

(My hubby does this all time time - "No dear, it's NOT Windows, Outlook, FireFox, iTunes... it's the ISP mucking up again. Go get a cup of coffee before you hurt something!")

Next time - and I'm betting there will be a next time  Grin - before you panic, ask your host what they did this time.  Roll Eyes
