Moving to new system

Postby Dhaiul » Thu Apr 18, 2013 8:50 pm

We are prepping to take the forum offline to migrate to a new hardware system. This will cause an issue with browsers when the DNS swaps to the new server. While I have tuned the DNS entries to have a TTL of only one hour many ISPs will rewrite the TTL.

There is little we can do about this past recommend you choose another resolving name server configuration for your system if this is on your ISP side.

There will likely be similar issues such as viewtopic.php?f=8&t=5383

I will try to keep the downtime as short as possible however this old server is on its last life. Its been a good 6 years but its time to move on to new hardware and take this one behind the woodshed.

Looks like something is up with the image hosting system, since avatars not hosted offsite no longer display and the option to upload pictures directly is no longer available in the user control panel.

https rewrite has been re-enabled. this was causing issue with authentication as you could have a cookie from each hostname that the server runs under then one for both http and https.
