Old style urls not working any more

posted by simon on Friday, November 27, 2009

The http://tiddlyspot.com/siteid urls have been deprecated (though working) for a long time. Since a few days ago they have stopped working. I'm planning to setup and test a rewrite that will redirect them, but until that rewrite is in place the old style links are broken. So it's a good idea to update your links and bookmarks to use the new style urls such as http://siteid.tiddlyspot.com/

(hopefully) back to normal now

Control panel is working again. And I've just switched the site creation form on http://tiddlyspot.com/ site back on.

Anyone who is still having problems with their site please send an email to support@tiddlyspot.com.

Download urls should be working again now

If you are still getting 501 errors when trying to access your site then please send an email to support@tiddlyspot.com. Mention your site id in the email.

Site creation is currently unavailable

There is a new directory structure for tiddlyspot sites which should prevent future 'directory too large' problems. However the code that creates sites and operates the control panel doesn't know about the new structure yet. Hence these features are currently disabled until at least tomorrow night. Thanks again for your patience.

500 errors for password protected sites

This should be fixed now also.

Hopefully now all sites are restored and saving to web works. Please let me know if this is not the case for you. Control panel is currently still broken.

Dreamhost is doing some reorganisation of file servers and because the directory containing all tiddlyspot sites is too big for the file system it's being moved to they decided to tar and gzip it. So tiddlyspot is down until further notice. Apologies for the inconvenience. I'm hoping to be able to sort this out tomorrow. (Sunday au time)

Warning about security

I think this should be made more obvious than it seems to be at the moment.

Is Tiddlyspot secure?
No. Your password is sent in clear text when uploading and when authenticating to access a private site or your control panel. This means that your Tiddlyspot is vulnerable to packet sniffing and your password could be discovered by a malicious third party. For this reason please don't put sensitive information such as banking details in your Tiddlyspot and don't use the same password that you use for other high security sites.

I've added this to the FAQ here:
