KO4BB site down ? ( manual repository )
« on: October 05, 2023, 04:37:35 pm »
Hi there,
anyone knows what is going on on KO4BB website ? http://www.ko4bb.com/getsimple/index.php?id=manuals

Any pdf manual I try to access, I get :

"Warning: mkdir(): Disk quota exceeded in /var/www/html/getsimple/admin/inc/theme_functions.php(544) : eval()'d code on line 68"

Tried differen browsers and two different OS,,,

Disk space exhausted ?  :o

I'm having the same problem. Did you ever find a solution or did it resolve itself for you at some point?

The site owner mentioned somewhere that he is limited to the #GB of downloads each day.
If more people donated maybe it will help.

Links from his articles to his docs repo, like the manuals in this Fluke 742A article work fine for me. It's just that you can't browse the folders anymore because people where bulk downloading many gigabytes of data, taking up all the bandwidth. But links work fine for me.

Tried to upload a manual (Varian V4700A) yesterday, but neither the app, or standard ftp worked. Also tried to send an email, but error returned on that as well. It's a valuable resource, used often here, so are there any mirrors for the site ?...

There are several ways to get data from the Xdevs archive:
1. Internet Archive https://web.archive.org/web/20230715223647/https://xdevs.com/doc/
2. Mirror https://xdevs.mymsk.cloud/doc/

P.S. I am also very annoyed by the practice of posting photos on third-party resources. Many old topics have already been irretrievably lost :( Perhaps it is worth banning this or making the forum copy them for itself.

well  it is a problem if people abuse them ... and yes  linking outside eevblog can or could be problematic ???   but bandwith / storage  etc ... has a cost

If eevblog  is starting to host them too,  im not sure of the impact it could create ...

i contributed a few times on KO4BB   and i do realize  i did not myself done some backups  ....  :palm:

i was i need of a few things, some where still downloadable from xdev's   some where not


kO4BB now seem ok  if i click on some pdf ???

The mirror seems OK:

https:xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

I removed the mirror link after a complaint.

I don't know what happened to the original site/files. I can think of three possibilities though. One is permanent. The other two may or may not be.

The previous post was about KO4BB being down. Where are the KO4BB contents? For xdevs.com, how about just requesting access as described here, instead of linking to a website that states:

This is a denazified copy of the xDevs.com website

There has been a message about website capacity limits for some time.

NOTE: the website is currently near its capacity limit. Some operations (uploads, downloads) may be intermittently unavailable while I work on the problem. Please be patient, hopefully this will be fixed soon (March 16, 2024).
