Panic at wIMG!

Today I woke up to find out all my screen-shots had turned into gray squares at globolister!!



Turns out the server that runs wIMG yesterday stopped receiving email for some reason, and it looked like the problem was cause by the "clamav" anti-virus according to the logs. Following a recommendation found online, I attempted to upgrade clamav but I guess I ended-up accidentally upgrading the whole operating system!! (ubuntu..)

Then I was lucky cos after the whole upgrade everything was still working fine, it actually didnt even fix my email problem... then I restarted the system and the mail started working again, the web sites were up so I toughed everything was good.

It is only the next morning that I got up and had a look at globolister and I was horrified to find out that all the screen-shots had changed into gray squares!!! (not to say gay squares) New screen-shots were also coming out as gray squares....

Anyways after a bit of investigating I quickly found out that the reason of the problem was that upgrading the system had upgraded most applications, including firefox and the exact executable path for firefox had changed from firefox-3.6.6 to firefox-3.6.13.

So I only needed to change the executable path in my PHP script that runs the browsers and Et Voilą! Everything is working again.
