More server / site updates

Hi there

I'm in the process of transferring the domain name and nameservers over on to the new server. It shouldn't affect the forum but the main site will possibly be unavailable for a period.

Given the track record of the server upgrade so far, I'm not expecting it to go smoothly!!!

Again, any important news/updates will be on twitter at @clydemaritime should the forum become unavailable.

Nameservers have been changed but it may take 24-48 hours to fully propogate and resolve. As an example I was able to view the sites on the new server from work at lunchtime, but it's still pointing to the old sites from home (with TalkTalk).

I'm aware of a few folk who've had some login issues - hopefully that will be resolved when this is fully up and running.

Still having login issues this morning - I've even got it myself! The site should be accessible at http://173.249.154.18/~clydeser/shipping/

Fingers crossed that's the dns issues fixed. Apparently there was a conflict in the apache server setup.

Right, now we have a dna for the site all should be well again .... mind you, I think the Sioux or Commanche server would have been a better bet .... these Apache servers are duff :lol:

Thank goodness anyway .... it's been wig-wamming all over the place this last week.

As a matter of technical record and interest, when it all finally clicked and came together, did you shout "Geronimo!"

Mind you, in Ardrossan that would be regarded as perfectly normal behaviour ..... :roll:

Well we've got four wheels on our wagon again, so should outrun them Injuns, still plenty of Injuneers to watch out for though.

Stuart,

Not sure if you are aware of this, but when I try to access the forum using http://forums.clydemaritime.co.uk/, I get this;

Also Stuart, when I use the http://173.249.154.18/~clydeser/shipping/ link, it accepts my password then after a few seconds sends me back to the sign on page.

Hi Graham

Yep, I'm aware of the directory listing. Trouble is I don't know how to hide it! The tech support guys are on the case though. There was an issue with a .htaccess file this morning which they tweaked, but that in turn has caused other issues. They tweaked something back and the directories became visible!

It's not helped that at home my ISP's nameservers are still directing me to the old site!

We're almost there though. Once this is resolved we should be back on track. I hope!

Stuart

OK. Fingers crossed this time that everything's back to normal. I promise that I won't touch any settings tomorrow to see how it goes.

My only issue is still that I can't view the site using forums.clydemaritime.co.uk as the TalkTalk dns servers are still pointing to the old location, yet I can see the main site ok and I can view the 'new' forums on my phone.

Please let me know if anyone finds any other issues.

Stuart

I kept finding this too, until I deleted all cookies for the site and started from scratch. It seems to have done the trick.

Please use forums.clydemaritime.co.uk to log in from. The temporary IP address will work but won't allow automotive and may give other login issues.

Thanks
