Update: The Sanatoga Post Back Online Thursday
SANATOGA PA – The Sanatoga Post news service came back online Thursday afternoon (May 14, 2020) after successful support efforts provided by two of its website hosting companies, located separately in Provo UT and Austin TX. However, portions of the site with articles written five or more years ago were irreparably damaged and must be removed as The Post continues to serve readers.
The damage, caused by heavy bursts of reader traffic Monday morning (May 11) at about 10:45 a.m., crashed its servers. For a short time Sanatoga Post traffic is being diverted to The Pottstown Post website, where all published articles will be available to ensure readers avoid previously displayed error messages.
The Post Publications, the Sanatoga-based company that publishes news editions for Sanatoga, Pottstown, Limerick, and the Perkiomen Valley, has already upgraded its web services to accommodate increased reader visits, according to Managing Editor Joe Zlomek. It also intends to rely on site backups to restore and archive the damaged material, and is working on a site redesign.

Whoops! The Sanatoga Post Had Problems Monday
SANATOGA PA – The Sanatoga Post news website crashed with server problems and was taken offline Monday morning (May 11) shortly before 11 a.m. , according to its hosting provider, HostGator.com. Readers attempting to visit The Sanatoga Post see only a page that proclaims “access is denied.”
Managing Editor Joe Zlomek regrets the inconvenience the situation creates, and offers his apologies. Until the Sanatoga edition can be brought back online, The Pottstown Post will carry content supplied daily by The Post Publications, which owns both news sites.
Thanks for your patience while we work through the technical issues.
