Scottish Football Historical Archive

Post by Aten » Mon Sep 23, 2019 6:04 pm

Has the Scottish-football-historical-archive moved again? The last link I had to the site is scottish-football-historical-archive.co.nf, however it seems that link no longer exists. Does anyone have a new link?

Many thanks.

Due to a problem with the free .co.nf suffix, it has been suspended. This has meant the SFHA site is down yet again and unless I can find a free host the only freely available access will be via the webarchive. I am looking at getting the site up and running again but please don't expect anything to appear until 2020 at least. I have had a big drain on my time for the last 2 years due to pressing family commitments and I'm afraid maintaining the site has been way down in my list of priorities.

I have all the data on disk so if there is anything that is not available on the webarchive version please ask and I'll try to help.

Please forgive me if my lack of tech knowledge shows through in this message but I'm very much a pen 'n' bit o' paper man!
Firstly, I hope your fortunes change Brian and whatever it is you and your family are going through gets better. Mere websites are understandably way down your priorities.
Secondly, so as to get your astonishing full works back available to your indebted followers, can we not muster enough collective financial will through interested members on here to afford a web host? I don't know the costs and would need advised of estimates and just how much you can store within a financial package.
I'm happy to offer my share if anyone in-the-know can advise of how, where and how much.
Let me know if anyone else is interested and, in the meantime, hope the sun starts to shine a bit brighter for Brian.

Thanks for the update, Brian, I fully understand your position and hope that things improve for yourself and family in the very near future.

The point you raised, Alan, as regards possible financial support is a good one. I would also be willing to contribute.

Hi,

I've got webspace on londonhearts.com

I can create a sub domain and a user and password for you to ftp files there if you want?

A quick update.

I've heeded some very helpful advice and registered a new domain name, http://sfha.org.uk.

After making a new home page I added some seasonal files from 1873 to 1890 and will add the remaining 19th Century results over the coming weeks. I will also be tidying up the many other files and pages and be uploading them onto the site over the coming months.

Please bear with me while I do this and hopefully give the site the stability it has sadly lacked for the last few years.

Thanks again for all the support and I am really looking forward to working on the Archive again.
