Title: WEBSITE BEING MOVED TODAY (Fri May 26 afternoon)
Post by: Rick Couchman on May 26, 2017, 02:41:27 PM
The website is FINALLY being moved to a new server.

Fingers crossed that it does as planned.

Just in case this doesn't work it's been a privilege getting to know all of you.

Except Frank.

Also, if you do find an error, please give it up to 24 hrs or so.  Should be pretty quick tho...  Like in the next few hours.

Looks like the move went well?  I notice the forum looks different today, no issues here so far.

Everything seems to work again, the only glitch is I get this ACCESS DENIED error message when I first bring up the site after shutting down my computer:


The page you are trying to access is restricted due to a security rule.

If you believe the security rule is affecting the normal operation of your website, contact your host support team and provide detailed instructions how to recreate this error.
They will be able to assist you with rectifying the problem and adjusting the security configuration if needed.

But then, when I reload the site, it works fine.  FYI

CRAP.  If it happens again please hit print screen button and send me a copy.  Or at least copy the text and send it to me.  That ain't good!

I'll try and fix this template blip tonight or tomorrow.

I've noticed the site's been down for me in the morning the past couple days. Could be related to ZBBM's security issue.

Busta, we all decided you need a timeout, we've restricted your access each day.

Whenever I try to quote a post it gives a loading banner across the top of the page and does not do anything.

It's still not 100% to where it was before the server move - that simplemachines banner is there, plus the top menu isn't sized right - but it's almost accurate.  I'll figure it out over the next day or so, unless anyone finds any other errors!

I figured it was either you guys, or my boss.

Hey Rick,

Just got back from town and saw this note, and your previous message.  I'm sending an email with  a screengrab.  But as I say, all I need to do is reload the site and it comes up the second time.

The only other problem I've noticed is the navigation dropdown at the bottom of pages doesn't work anymore.  When I try to use it I get a "Loading" message at the top of the page (which I think comes from Simple Machines) but it doesn't load.  Again, not a big deal because I can still navigate back to Discussion Board homepage via the sitemap language at the top of the page, and go from there.

Toolbar looks good.

My avatar died, so I had to upload it again, but I received an error about the directory not being writable.

"The attachments upload directory is not writable. Your attachment or avatar cannot be saved."

And I, too.  Something is obviously not functioning properly.

For me some of the sections are out of place.

Just for Fun is now at the top, having previously been at the bottom. Site info at the bottom, which I think was at the top so they may have swapped places?

Otherwise everything seems to be functioning ok for me

I also couldn't upload a profile pic (attachments directory not writable). Luckily they already had CB's pic loaded in the defaults.

I still cannot update mine, either.  I've tried again and again and again but get either same message "The attachments upload directory is not writable. Your attachment or avatar cannot be saved" or "Your upload was successful" yet either way --no avatar nor photo from URL is displayed.

and as Arn pointed out earlier, forum sections were all out of order but those seem to have returned to their old (and preferred) heirarchy too.

danke part two!

Avatar upload operation confirmed.

Youtube plugin seems to have disappeared.
