NOW ON NEW SERVER!!!

Post by babybmwadmin »

The site has been migrated and appears to be okay.
If you experience issues, trying clearing cache, cookies etc.
If you can’t get logged in, use the Contact Us option at the bottom with as much detail as you can.

I’ve played around with posting, registering new accounts, requesting password resets etc and everything seems to be good.

Apologies for the downtime today.

Well done, I know how hard work server moves can be! Seems ok for me so far.

That will be a caching issue at your end.
When you try to hit the site, one minute your setup is trying to look at the old location, then the next minute it’s looking at the new location.

Look into properly deleting your cache and flushing your DNS.

I've done all that 2 or 3 times but still getting the odd hiccup. If nobody else is having issues I am happy to accept its a problem unique to me tho.

The time is an hour out I noticed, I'm typing this at 09:23

Ignore that, just seen you can set it in your User CP.

Since the swap I've getting a lot of errors when using search engines to bypass PHPBB's 4-character search minimum, e.g. sticking:

Code: Select all

$6nn site:babybmw.net
Into google.

Some results are pointing to (for example):

Code: Select all

https://www.babybmw.net/viewtopic.php?t=47019
But the correct path includes "/forum":

Code: Select all

https://www.babybmw.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=47019
When the wrong URL is followed, the site loads a completely blank page other than the line "File not found."

Doesn't seem to be consistent - some results have the correct URLs, others don't. So far it's happening on Google and DDG. Not sure if it's on this side or just a case of waiting for the crawlers to fix links?

I just went to post something and while I was typing someone else posted to the same thread
My post didn't get accepted when I first hit submit, but it worked on the 2nd attempt
Is that a server improvement, because before, you lost what you had typed
