Frustrated bloggers at the LANG papers have been facing delays of up to a half hour when trying to publish posts and readers are being blocked from posting new comments. The troubles are due to a stalled effort to change host companies.
In a Tuesday memo, Los Angeles Daily News online editor Ryan Garfat pleads for patience and promises imminent relief. However, I'm told the problems have persisted through today.
The memo follows:
We have widespread reports of posts not showing up, people not being able to sign in and commenting problems starting last night and into today.
From what I gather from Josh Kleinbaum, relaying information from Denver, expect those issues to continue but relief is imminent.
We were on schedule to migrate the blogs which are hosted by Indigio over to MNGi's control tomorrow. Right now it looks like tomorrow's migration will be for testing-purposes only and several of us will be going through the new server to identify any bugs or problems. After they have fixed the issues, then they will move everything over, which should be instantaneous and you should see no difference.
We expect the official migration to occur sometime this week.
Until then, we're not confident Indigio will address the issues we're experiencing today, especially since we're about to move everything off their inadequate servers. So it's likely we'll experience our widespread problems for the next couple days until we can get this completely migrated.
The issues, however, are not experienced by everyone, so try a few times to post or rebuild your blogs. Some can post, most have problems.
Better times are ahead, and we appreciate your patience.
