I couldn't understand what was happening. Inrepparttar next half hour I received 50 unsubscribers. I checkedrepparttar 124409 list to see what was going on. In my mindrepparttar 124410 only name onrepparttar 124411 list I was sending to was mine.

When I pulled up my ftp program, last weeks list was on it. I went to my software to changerepparttar 124412 list but it wouldn't change. The only thing that would cause it not to change was ifrepparttar 124413 chmod settings had changed. They did. I had sent my 'test' to my list as it was last week.

The upgrade onrepparttar 124414 server had reset allrepparttar 124415 settings to everything in my cgi-bin. After it was all said and done, I lost over 200 subscribers. My host is aware ofrepparttar 124416 problem and have done a number of good things for my site, so I see no need to move. The real goal of this article is to make web owners aware of checking their site frequently.

Thoughrepparttar 124417 program I use is unusual in thatrepparttar 124418 mailing list can change inrepparttar 124419 cgi-bin, I had other programs that users brought to my attention were not working. What this means is that as a website owner, you have to check your site allrepparttar 124420 time. Don't trust that it works.
