Monday, August 17, 2009 dysfunctional again

Already the main page of greets with a nice PHP warning at the bottom
Your script possibly relies on a session side-effect
which existed until PHP 4.2.3.
While this warning is just looking very unprofessional, and should have alerted the webmaster, when trying to access any page on a specific district, or also one of the news linked on the main page, it only shows the header graphics and then
1064: You have an error in your SQL syntax; check
the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server 
version for the right syntax to use near '' at line 1
It seems the webmaster updated the PHP, which was really overdue as the 4.2.3 was from 2002 and had many security holes - not surprising that the website was hacked several times already. The current problem has started within last week, lets see how long it will take this time.

And same as before, attempts to contact the webmaster to alert them of the problem fails. The most logical email address is not working at all, my note via the contact form wasn't answered and obviously did not result in any action yet. Also neither the email from the WhoIs record nor the webmaster seem to be responsive.

Update: It's working again on August 24.
