EXECUTIVE COUNCIL MEETING

10:00 AM
 War Memorial Building
Jackson, MS


Old news but still important
Good News Finally

Over the past four or five years we have been going through host after host because of telecom buyouts and mergers.  All went well until an outfit NTSCommunications bought our hosting.  Since that time we’ve had nothing but trouble.  They put us on another server supposedly to “improve service” but in doing so they obliterated our website.  When they finally got it back up very few links worked.  They offered to fix it but wanted a fee for doing so.

I finally got most of the links working but we were still plagued with random outages, and ftp outages where noone could open the website nor could I upload any new or revised pages.

I could have changed the domain name using a different host, and had a new host in a matter of days but in polling a few members I found that they did not want a new domain and frankly neither did I.

None of the administrative files of mississippiscv had been updated.  In updating I found the network solutions and the ICAAN administrative files had not been updated since inception in the ‘90's.  The original registrant is deceased, the original host is out of business, and so on for 97 lines.  All this had to be researched and submitted before we could change the password to unlock the domain.  Needless to say it was time consuming!

I apologize for the outages you might have experienced but - - - finally - - - all the administrative files are updated and we now using a new host.  One that I’ve used for years with other sites and never had one iota of downtime.

The website is up and running but not yet fully functional because I am going through each page, checking links, correcting other errors and cleaning out superfluous antiquated files.  A slow process so please bear with me.  If there are any pages you need soon please advise me at internet@mississippiscv.org and I will get them up.

Thanks for your patience and understanding
