Thank you for taking care of this Matt.

The only issue is not related to any of the work you've done, I can access the board on the new server from my Telstra mobile but my TPG home Internet has not redirected as yet. Hopefully that will rollover tonight.

I could access the new one for a while on my PC then fell back to the old one and just now have come back to the new one. Did we fall back again for a while?

If you don't mind, I'd like to make an "Explanation" post of sorts: AHEM...

When you transfer the DNS of a domain, The change does not happen straight away, Rather it takes up to 48 hours for this change to occur. Each ISP needs to make note of the change, and redirect you accordingly.

The reversion that Fleet Lists was talking about is not unheard of, Though it has never actually happened to me before.

I resolved that by clearing cookies.

In fact I had one funny one where a new post I looked up actually displayed attachments from the old server - some attachments which would have been lost as they were made after the backup was done. Obviously they were cached somewhere.

I'm glad I was not the only one who had Withdrawal Symptons, I visit 2 other forums on a daily basis and when any of them go down, it's bloody hard not to keep checking to see if it's back up & running.

There is a thread in the Adelaide section of the board, Random AdMet questions or something. When I clicked view oldest unread post, it took me to the correct spot, about page 7 or 8. Went to click on the next page and you can see for yourself the error. viewtopic.php?f=6&t=45671&start=150 I did think it odd that there had been 6 or so pages worth of postings in that thread in the last 24 hours or so.

I went out of the topic, back in to the "newest post", and all of a sudden the last post was on page 13. Page 7 relates to posts from 2011. Yet manually enter that address (Start at post 150) and it says it does not exist, even though the thread is over 300 replies long

Further, if you flick through the pages of the topic, page 10 is viewable, page 7 "does not exist". Not sure if it is other pages, hopefully this highlights something

There has been a further major outage which has just been resolved.

There has been a double-allocation the IP addresses and they have now given us a new one, meaning we need to wait up to 48 hours for the domain name to correctly point to the new IP address...

Until the IP address propagates you can use http://184.170.246.114/~busaustr/forum/ temporarily to access ATDB.

I have found that the link from the forum to the photo gallery does not work but http://184.170.246.114/~busaustr/gallery/index.php will get you to the photo gallery

I guess this post is not really much use because once you have got here your domain name has been corrected by your service provider.

It has mainly been posted for record purposes.

One thing I noticed is that over 1000 of my posts have disappeared, any idea why?

We've identified the issue and we are now working out how to reload the older posts which appear to have been lost.

I've just logged on, seems okay at first glance on here. BUT... I went to check out the NZ section of the Fleet Lists and I have discovered that several random operators fleet lists have disappeared, my last updates were around 05/08/12, and About 300 vehicles that I've recorded have disappeared. It seems to of been after the server had changed because during the down-time, they were all there displaying properly.

Edit: Problem solved.
