Welcome to Helio : Atlantis

This site is a spin-off archive from Heliopolis, in much the same way that Stargate - Atlantis is a spin-off from Stargate - SG1. Heliopolis is a huge, multi-author, Stargate fan fiction site. Like the original site, we do not host slash stories here, but we do welcome gen or adult stories, any genre or rating, other than slash. (See our FAQ and Submissions pages for more info.)

My name is Lyssa, and I am the webmistress of this site, opened 01 August 2004. I welcome your comments and suggestions. You can contact me at:

Downtime Explanation

I received a question today about the server downtime and what happened and why. I am sorry about what happened. We were with out previous host on a VPS for several years. I kept getting several e-mails a month that we had exceeded our allotted resources and should increase our package. I would, and it would work for a while, but then would happen again. I kept increasing our allotment to keep up with the demands, but the price was becoming prohibitive.

I finally decided to make the shift to a complete dedicated server. I am hoping that this will solve the problem. It is a bit more expensive, and there was a bit of a learning curve involved, as the software is all new to me, and all of the server, database and file location information had to be updated. This is also why the email was down, and I couldn't be contacted.

I lost some of my personal files, but all of Heliopolis seems to be intact from the last update on March 17.

Thank you for your concern and continued interest.

New Server

We have moved. We are now with a new hosting company (Codero) on a bigger server. I apologize for the downtime. There was a bit of a hassle moving things over. I tried to do it all before the old server was disconnected, but that didn't work out so well, and I had to start over. And then I spent almost a week chasing around a stupid bug that I should have seen in 5 minutes. I blame the craziness at work (or, you know, transient idiocy) I worked overnight, swing and morning shifts last week. (I hate those weeks).

Anyway, everything should be back up and running smoothly. Please let me know what isn't working.
