    Server status page reads down at all times

    Noticed earlier that the server status page wasn't accurate.

    Poked and looked at the source which references images for dynamic content.

    Parent Directory
    UP_03.png
    index_01.png
    index_02.png
    index_03.png
    index_04.png
    spacer.gif

    Gabriel, it appears as if someone has hacked your page and removed the ability of the page to display the UP_03.png file. It now permanently reads down.

    I'd like to think anyway that it was hacked, and not done deliberately :dry:

    Its a PHP page, you don't get the code that checks the server is up client side that way :lol:
    There is the high level design of a gameplay mechanic. Then there is what everyone does in spite of it.

    That may be so, however the site is still inaccurate, and always indicates the server is down. The visible code does not even mention the file which might display the "up" status (UP_03.png).

    I have had the site read up every once in a while, but the mechanism it uses will probably need some tweaking do to the change in the server.

    On the other hand, the page source will always reflect what is displayed. So if it did display "UP" the source will replace the appropriate index.png with the up.png. PHP allows the web server to dynamically generate a static page. So you wont see the effects of a change until the page is refreshed and the cache clears.

    Ah, I see. Makes sense I suppose. I haven't coded in 20+ years so I was looking at the code through the eyes of a Fortran/Pascal coder, and seeing no decision subroutines. I figured the server status code was elsewhere, but wasn't thinking that the page code might be generated on the fly.

    Learned something interesting today, thanks
