Inability to login

An upgrade to the system broke the authentication system which DearDiary.Net uses and unfortunately took a lot longer to trace down than usual due to a complete lack of any error logging, coupled with a reboot attempt (which sometimes works but rarely!) totally failing because the server would not restart.

The server restart issue has been fixed, and won’t recur (at least not for that reason!) and I have recompiled the authentication module and it too is now working.

Apologies for the inconvenience


Now notifies are working again…

For now. Until the next time.



No Notifies After All

Nope, seems like they’re still busted…


Notifies Stopped Again

Diary Notifications had stopped working again. I believe I have found the reason why and have put a temporary solution in place for now, which will hopefully see things for a few days until I can put a more permanent solution in. The permanent solution may well improve things with the Hotmail situation in the future too so I shall look into that as soon as I can.
