Power Outage. Server Errors. Website Bugs

 Last night

We had a big power outage here in Fairbanks. All of the aurorawebcam.com webcams where taken offline. Here is the offical story from the local paper.

 The last week or so

 I have been tracking a bug from the webcam server. This webcam bug will stop the camera and not let it restart. I have contacted my hosting providor and tomorrow we are going to test a few more solutions. This bug is diffrent from the "no input found" error that will happen when you try to changes pages on the website. (which i believe maybe 99% fixed??)

 As always

 I'm looking for error reports under this topic here in the forums. Please give as much detail as you can. What internet browser are using, how often it happens, and how to reproduce the error if you know how.

 

More news to come soon. -Troy

If it hangs up again send me a email. I might be able to fix it sooner. I only check the chat a few times a day. In the future I hope to have it restart automatically every morning.

Yes, much better now. Missed yesterday's display though.

Just restarted the server. I hope that helped.

I just checked into it. The USAF stopped making the data for it. I just posted some info on the home/news page about it. Looks like its down until i can find another data source.

Troy, the monitor stopped working because the system that holds all the data for the predictions changed their website about 10 days ago. It broke a lot of links to the data for a lot of apps.

looks like a little aurora above the clouds to the north east. (lower right)

I'm going to turn off the Aurora Monitor for a few weeks. I have to figure out why it stopped working. I hope it will be back soon.
