Did any of you think to follow the suggestion that you report it by email to Jeff the system administrator?

Jeff's email address was on the last line of the error page.

I did send an email to that address after it had been dead a few hours and he got the site working again; I was just wondering how many others reported the fault.

Not much point in twittering to an email address, it would just get lost in all the 'noise'.

I received a couple of emails directly letting me know about the problem. It took a while to fix the problem. We are running on an older server and I am working on migrating to a new one, but it takes time.

For you detail people, it was not a Brexit issue. we ran out of space and I had to allocate additional space. LotusElan.net is over 50GB of pictures, information, etc. This took time to move to a larger drive.

cheers thanks for the explanation, much appreciated, it appears lots of early posts have been lost during past updates which is a shame for the community to find for themselves without relying on other members who managed to save them, ie the records of cars which came out of the factory with chassis numbers and related engine numbers colours etc it maybe a good idea to reinstate the lists back again as there are other members seeking to see spec of their cars too which I was trying to help a member locate, I having seen the list previously some time ago, knowing what I had seen long ago but not knowing why I went into another room 5 mins ago becomes a nightmare for us fossils

Can you elaborate? We did not lose any data, posts or topics.

Hi this was the page I had saved in my favourites

https://www.elanregistry.org/list_cars.php

Not Found
The requested URL /list_cars.php was not found on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

The list contained information by years cars were produced giving chassis numbers, engine numbers, colours and other information

I actually found my car and was able to confirm it still had original engine fitted within the records, apparently now this information has been removed and only held by one person who we need to ask for
I asked the question viewtopic.php?f=20&t=45480 and saw this reply.

Jim Boone who posts as Unibrain on here, made some changes to his Elanregistry website earlier this year and the link you have saved is probably to his old site which is why it no longer works.
viewtopic.php?f=19&t=43677

Try this link .....

According to that address given, that list was NEVER ON THIS SITE, which is lotuselan.net. It was on the elanregistry.org website, so you are complaining to the wrong person.
