Hi all,

Just to let you know that if you are jonesing for a bit of the old LightWiki magic you can get it here right now: http://www.esaa-aquitaine.com/lightwiki/public_html/index.php?title=Main_Page. Everything should work okay and many thanks to new hosts Laurent and Olivier Giboulot. Over this week I hope to change the DNS over so the lightwiki.com domain points in the right direction...

Ahh fantastic to see it's back up and running, and hopefully it will have it's correct name soon! :)

Fingers crossed. I just have to deal with the Gordian knot of OpenSRS and Powweb who've stitched up my domain between them.

Don't celebrate just yet, it's looking like a very old backup (from 2007), so I need to check that too...

Are backups newer than '07 available?

Is it difficult to weed out spammers like this (http://www.esaa-aquitaine.com/lightwiki/public_html/index.php?title=Each_organization_which_includes_w eb_store_need_to_have_some_effective_strategy_of_i mprovement) and all the recent posts (http://www.esaa-aquitaine.com/lightwiki/public_html/index.php?title=Special:RecentChanges)?

Thanks, am curious,
Nick

I'm trying to get it going again on its "normal" URL of www.lightwiki.com but other things have priority right now.

Use spammer blacklists: http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Combating_spam

Call me optimistic but a proper Wiki can be used by a community to strengthen that community.

Thank you Ben for holding the wiki together for so many years, and Tonttu for the black-list link.

I didn't need a blacklist tool at all before because it was set up so that only registered users could edit or post - it didn't take long to weed out usernames like "jbw3iu5yakfnwo34tuvbn" :). When the site is back up it will be using the backup from about a year ago.

Cool :) Does this mean all my dynamics reference will be back?

I remember it was admin approved registration. Maybe with the blacklist you could have registration without admin approval (spambots can create accounts on their own after all).

The backup is complete from August 2010 so I hope so yes Mike. The reg *was* admin approved - it only took a mo to do so I didn't mind, and there's only so much automation can get you.
