I emailed Emrys with a couple of questions about what is required both technically and financially - and he then added the details to his post.
Based on those tech details i did a quick search and found "Go Daddy" hosting site which to me seemed reasonable price wise and could (i think) offer enough of our technical needs to run - i might be completely wrong and talking rubbish as my computer knowledge is self-taught..
What if say 6 of us agreed to host the site and pay a sixth of the cost each? Between those 6 there must be at least one with the technical know how?
I am very keen to keep it all going both financially and technically with help from others. If we "signed up" for a 12 month initally at least it would do so.
With regard to the time element - can anyone estimate what that involves please - are we talking a certain number of hours every day?
I don't know what powers the photo hosting, it may even be something Emrys has made himself so that may be an issue.
getting a copy of the database and images would be one way of saving the content.
It would be far easier in terms of time to see if it's possible to transfer whatever account Emrys already has to someone else.
It's the time taken to set up a new copy of the system on a different server and sort out the existing problems like the main site. It's also running a version of the forum software which is no longer supported and so I need to think if doing an upgrade at the same time makes sense or not.
