Tomax's site temporarily down
« on: May 02, 2016, 02:42:26 PM »
Hey all, so here's the deal.  Last night in order to do some other nifty things, I upgraded our server.  As part of that process, I upgraded PHP from 5 to 7, which is a pretty major upgrade.  The thing is, though, when Red Tomax created the site, there were a whole bunch of things that were just about to be deprecated (mainly procedural database calls in deference to MySQLi and eventually PDO), and with the upgrade to 7, they've been officially removed from the language.

As a result, after the upgrade, Tomax's site broke pretty horribly.  I'm having to go through and recode every database call that the site makes, which is almost every file that the site uses.  I'm also taking the opportunity to audit the code and plug up some holes I've found to make it more stable, tight, and secure.

So Red Tomax's site is currently down, and probably will be for a day or two, with functionality incrementally returning after that.

Sorry for the inconvenience, but I promise, we will get it back up ASAP.

Any progress on this front? Or, and I suggest this because based on my experience with PHP 7 it sounds like it might be quite an ordeal to get the site up and running again, any chance of just making a database dump available for download?

I believe the current plan is to extract just the City of Data portion from Tomax and bring it up to par with PHP7. We will get it back online eventually, it's just taking longer than expected.

The rest of Tomax (everything except City of Data) probably will not be restored. Its content was very outdated and Paragon Wiki covers it all better at this point.

Hi,

Just thought I would check in. I would like to use the data, and was wondering when it would be back up.

Thanks!

Tony hasn't had a chance to work on it any further, so for the time being, I reverted the Tomax site back to use the version that is on our older (not-upgraded) server. It may take up to 2 days for the DNS change to propagate.

https://tomax.cohtitan.com/data/powers/
It asks me for a name and password and rejects the one I use for Titan Network.

Can this pretty please be fixed?

Looks like it's just the https that has issues. You can access the site fine with http:

You say that "almost all of this info is in the Paragon Wiki", but none of the info I actually used that site for is on the Wiki - the hard numbers behind the powers.  (I was just going to look up how Incarnate Judgement powers damage scaling worked, in fact, which is how I learned the site was down.  Yeah, I still like going to look at the numbers, even after all these years.  Usually when I get into a discussion on other forums about how powerful CoH characters really were compared to the tissue-paper weaklings in other MMOs)

So you're a fan of the data dump plan I take it?

I second the data dump plan.

I ... guess?  But "dump" makes it sound like it's just going to be a single document with all the numbers jumbled together, rather than a searchable organized set of pages.  Going to miss that.

I'm hoping for something more elegant and refined.

I grabbed what was up on the Wayback Machine. Comes to about 190MB

Is there any chance of getting a data dump?

Any chance this will ever show up again? I looked into many snapshots on the web archive, but not every page was archived.

Would love to have this for posterity or if the SEGS guys ever get something finished.

Did this just include data that was in the various bin files which shipped with the game, or was it more than that?
