    Default TPR Download Depot down?

    A few days ago, I tried accessing the TPR Download Depot. However, when I try to go to it, I just get HTTP Error 500. What has happened?

    Why? Well, I don't know myself!
    Yeah, diesels are cool too, but I'm more of a steam person.

    Probably late with the yearly renewal, it's separate from the forums etc, robin_hoods normally asks for Donations at the beginning of October, may just be late. not the first time its happened.

    Not all web hosts are very good at sending out reminders. I closed my little site (well it shut by default) after the host failed to action my Nominet renewal, by the time I realised and went to their control panel got a message saying it was too late and the domain was unregistered. CBA to take it any further and TBH not done much with it or updated in the previous 12 months, so gave it the chop. It will be on the Wayback Machine if anyone wanted to look at it!

    Server error 500 means the mySQL server process has stopped and needs to be restarted. A common problem with online databases. The hosting admin would have to do that for them.

    Thanks to all of you for your responses. I thought it would be down for good.

    Anyone hear from robin_hoods about this site, I also Noticed that yukonzoom's site is down also. That site also had ties to robin_hoods.

    Well now the site shows "Account Suspended". I guess that means no more TPR downloads.

    Not necessarily, It could be they asked the site to be suspended since the database wasn't working. We did that for customers if they requested it at the ISP I worked for. I'm sure someone will get to the truth soon enough.

    I have communicated with @RHoods, and the problem is being looked at. I'm hoping the changed indication ("Suspended") is part of a recovery operation - can't have people accessing the database during a restore.

    Happened two years ago when the renewal was late, guessing it's the same issue and probably needs donations to pay for it.

    Also sent a pm on the 22nd but no reply, not surprised though as he doesn't use the forum much now.

    Also a thread on the same thing here https://forums.auran.com/trainz/show...inz-Pro-Routes

    Perhaps a mod could merge them?
    Edit (by mod): done.
