    Due to unforseen circumstances, the SCCX website is temporarily unavailable.

    Please feel free to post up run notices, Adopt A Trail updates, and anything else SCCX related here at XN, our temporary forum home!

    Thanks Dave!!

    Sounds good.
    Do we need to start a gofundme to get SCCX back up?

    If we could get a backup copy, I could have it back up in 30 mins with a different host.

    It doesn't seem to be a money issue...I spoke with Bluehost (the link from what used to be SCCX) and apparently there are issues with the shared server that the forum is hosted on. They couldn't give me a lot of information, as I'm not the actual owner/admin of the forum, but what they did share was interesting. I had been told that SCCX was hosted on a private server, but learned it is actually hosted along with five other sites...on a shared server out of Orem, Utah, with 3,000 other clients. The word is, one of the six sites has malware/virus issues, and in an effort to protect the other 2,994 clients, Bluehost shut SCCX down. Only Chris Ritchey/Aperion can get things back up and running at this point.

    I have been in touch with Frank who reached out to Chris. He was aware of the malware/virus issues, as Bluehost had been emailing him. For whatever reason (timing, life, etc.) he missed the cut off to get the site back up.

    So we wait.

    Or figure out a Plan B....which a few people have sent along some ideas.

    Hopefully this will all be resolved by Monday? But if not, maybe we should discuss alternative solutions?

    Sites back up...working with the admin to iron out the issues.

    Thanks again DB!
