Hmm... I am using PHP 5.3.10 myself with no issues. I can't think of anything in Extend-A-Story or PHP 5 that would cause the issues you are describing. First, if you haven't already done so, I would suggest making a database backup and turning off episode creation. If there is a problem that is cor...

I am currently running Extend-A-Story on MySQL version 5.5.31 using Ubuntu 12.04 with no problems. However, when I migrated from an older MySQL version, I did run into some problems. First, there is this bug: http://sourceforge.net/p/extend-a-story/bugs/9/ That bug is fixed in the latest version of ...

The networking change that I mentioned earlier has been implemented by my hosting provider. AOL is no longer blocking email from sir-toby.com. As far as I can tell, no email providers are blocking email from sir-toby.com at this time. If you are having any issues with receiving email from sir-toby.c...

I am now seeing email from sir-toby.com being blocked by aol.com. I am still waiting for my ISP to make the networking change that I mentioned earlier.

Another quick update: I am still working with my new ISP to make the networking change that will help email providers to accept email from Sir-Toby.Com. This is taking far longer than I anticipated.

Thank you for keeping this site going through the many, many years! You're quite welcome! I'm glad to do it. I didn't get episode 100000, but I'm happy to have written episode 99999 and 100001. They're not milestone episodes, but the numbers are both palindromes separated by just one number. I don'...

I am glad you found the information you needed to get everything working again. I am also curious as to what happened. If there is a security hole in Extend-A-Story, I'd like to get it fixed. Of course, it is also possible that your host simply upgraded the version of MySQL they are using and you go...

Extend-A-Story Updates

This is a quick update on some changes with the Extend-A-Story project. I've recently upgraded the Extend-A-Story project on SourceForge to use an updated version of their project management software. One of the big changes in the new version of their project management software is a new interface f...

I just checked my email logs and saw that email to other GMail users seems to be working. You may still need to tell GMail that email from sir-toby@sir-toby.com is not spam to prevent GMail from sending messages from sir-toby@sir-toby.com to your spam folder. I am still waiting for the networking ch...

My latest test emails seem to be working. GMail may be accepting email from Sir-Toby.Com again. I'll keep monitoring to be sure. Just in case, I am also making a small networking change that should make it more likely for GMail and other email hosts to accept email from Sir-Toby.Com.

Sir-Toby.Com Email Blocked by GMail

I just noticed that GMail is blocking some emails sent from Sir-Toby.Com. I'm not sure what the issue is currently. I am looking into it. If you are using GMail, you may not receive some emails from Sir-Toby.Com until this is resolved.

The migration is complete. If you can read this message, you are seeing Sir-Toby.Com on its new server. One thing to note as part of this migration is that the email address that is used to send email notifications from Sir-Toby.Com has changed. The new address is: sir-toby@sir-toby.com Please make ...

I've tried to factor in the DNS propagation delay into my estimate of the migration time. I figure about an hour for my work and maybe an hour or two for DNS propagation. But you are correct, there are variables outside my control, such as for how long your ISP will cache the old DNS information for...

I expect the migration to take two to three hours. I will have to take down Sir-Toby.Com during the migration. During this time you will see...
