Radio UserLand: Radio UserLand service closing

UserLand has decided to close the Radio UserLand and Salon Radio services as of December 31, 2009.

You can continue to use your Radio weblog hosted with UserLand until the end of the year.

If you plan on continuing to use Radio to publish your blog, we would recommend that you look for an alternative web host if your weblog is being published to a UserLand server. You can use the FTP option [1] in Radio to publish to your own server.

The closure of Radio will also mean that the UserLand-hosted comments, trackbacks and stats tracking will be unavailable after the shutdown date.

If you have any questions, please send them to

Manila: Admin Site: Clean referer stats

Manila referers stats are automatically cleaned when someone requests the referer stats page at /stats/referers. However, if ths page isn't requested over time the table can become quite large.

You can now clean the stats table for all sites on the server by using the Clean Referer Stats commands on the Maintenance settings page in the Frontier Admin site.

If your config.root file in the /Guest Databases/apps/ folder is quite large (20MB+), we recommend you use this command and then try compacting the config.root file.
