EricDubay.com Website Down - CSP Missing

Post by Admin on Fri Jun 22, 2018 4:26 am

Long time IFERS member CSP has been hosting EricDubay.com since he kindly bought the domain for me.  A long-time poster and flat-Earther, CSP was a regular member of IFERS, but hasn't signed in in over 3 months and hasn't responded to my private messages or emails in that whole time.  The EricDubay.com website is now down and I have no means of contacting him nor any recourse that I know of to reset the server, recover the site info etc.  The only contact information I have for him is csp@protonmail.th  If anyone knows of his whereabouts, how to contact him, or advice on how I should proceed it would be much appreciated.  Thanks

Interesting!

'Error establishing a database connection.'  (font on page created w/ bold type)

I could be wrong but that looks like a created web page and not your standard service error message.  I made a few web pages back in the day so to me it looks typical of something that has been made as an index/home/landing page of a site.

My best guess would be that CSP created the landing page himself for whatever reason. My second guess would be that he failed to renew it and someone previously put in a back order for the domain and they now own it.

The failure of CSP to respond could be out of sheer embarrassment for not renewing the domain.

My advice would be to put in a back order for the domain yourself just in case he has decided to let it go.

Regards.

It's likely a WordPress website (or a similar content management system like WP)...

This kind of message can occur when the server is down or when the configuration has an error pointing to the database. Either way, the only way to resolve this would be by gaining access to the server OR obtaining the domain registrar login and pointing the name servers for EricDubay.com to a new server. Both require admin access unfortunately Sad

Hopefully this person who controls that info replies soon.

Looks like Web-Archive has a good chunk of the site archived in their database:

https://web.archive.org/web/20180304000837/http://www.ericdubay.com/

Worst case scenario, someone could download the content of the archived pages and use it to rebuild a new site. STILL, you would need registrar access to EricDubay.com in order to rebuild the site on that domain

Seriously? What the hell. If the domain is important then why would you let it lapse or even let some other bozo supposedly "host" it for you and keep the name for himself and not transfer it to you? This is absurdly stupid. And if there is in fact a database error then the previous poster is correct in that it may well be a WordPress error or the site has been hammered and is down. For whatever reasons... typical with WP and it's penchant for being the target of hackers, I'd have to say this was lazy thinking to entrust to someone you can't even get ahold of or don't even know personally. As an old IT hand stuff like this just pisses me off.

CSP is not a bozo, nobody has let anything lapse, and he has transferred the domain to me. It is just his server which is down which hosts the site, and he himself that's missing. My other sites, forum, youtube, facebook have all been hacked/censored in some way so he was personally hosting it instead of leaving it on a public platform so as to be pro-active in pre-empting censorship attempts. I have started rebuilding the site now at http://www.ericdubay.wordpress.com and will re-route the domain there when finished.

Hi Everyone. I didn't know where to post this so my apologies if this is the wrong spot. But it seemed relevant given the context of the current thread.

If anyone can offer guidance on the following. I want to set up a new website, YouTube account, etc. to start spreading Flat Earth like a wildfire. It was clear to me from the first moment that this is the biggest lie that hides all the other lies and it must be exposed.

I want to make sure that I have a website that is secure and displays the videos I make independently of YouTube. I will still use YouTube/FB as long as I can to build a following but I don't want to be at their mercy if they decide to shut me down. So I would like to plan for that from the start.

Can anyone offer advice on how/where to buy/register a domain, where/how to host it so it is secure, where/how to host/backup all my videos and other content so they are relatively secure, etc.? And of course whatever else you think I am missing. I would really appreciate any guidance from those who have already gone this route.

Cheers

I have finished re-building EricDubay.com but am now having trouble with the domain forwarding to www.EricDubay.wordpress.com When people type EricDubay.com without the www, the re-direct isn't working, but it should be working if you type www.EricDubay.com Though some people are saying even this isn't working for them!? Can some IFERS members let me know, is "www.EricDubay.com" currently working for you?
