Free Image Uploads Temporary unavailable

Dear GarageSale Users,

because of a scheduled maintenance downtime, uploading new auction images to GarageSale’s Free Image Server will not be available for you during the following time period:

Australia (Sydney): 23.Nov, 9:00 a.m. – 23.Nov, 9:00 p.m.
Central Europe (Berlin): 22.Nov, 23:00 – 23.Nov, 11.00
USA (New York): 22.Nov, 5:00 p.m. – 23.Nov, 5:00 a.m.
USA (San Francisco): 22.Nov, 2:00 p.m. – 23.Nov, 2:00 a.m.

Auction images uploaded prior to that time period are not affected. These images will be served from a fail-over machine.

Our primary server’s hosting provider is moving its datacenter to a new building in a different city. We are using the opportunity to put additional hard drives into the server.

If you need to start auctions during the maintenance period, we suggest you configure GarageSale to use a different image hosting option or to perform the image upload prior to the downtime by submitting the auction to eBay using eBay’s scheduling option.

This temporary outage will effect GarageSale, GarageSale Basic, GarageSale HD on iPad, and GarageSale Touch on iPhone – but only if they are set to use GarageSale’s Free Image server for image storage.

We are sorry for any inconveniences this causes for you.

    Wish you had posted this information prominently on your website. I spent too long unnecessarily troubleshooting.

    I am in the UK and the Image Server is still not available: 19:27pm. Please can you advise when it will be working again?

    Hi hayleyjayne,

    What error message do you get when GarageSale tries to upload an image?


  5. Madeline Says:

    I am still getting this error:

    “WebDAV: Could not create file: 405 Method Not Allowed.”

    it is past when the downtime would be, it is now Nov.23 11pm CST. Any idea when this will be solved?

    Hi Madeline,

    Seems you computer did not receive the new IP address for the server yet. You can manually force this process by entering the following line into the Terminal utility:

    dscacheutil -flushcache

    If you are still on Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard), this line should have the same effect:

    lookupd -flushcache

    Hope this helps,
