The missing posts are slowly being restored. However as this is a manual process and that I will be interstate for a week. It maybe up to 2 weeks before they are all back on the website.

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.
This is usefull for me as my home provider has not updated their DNS records as yet, so to access ATDB, I need to use the 184.... address above.

You should put this on top of the BusAustralia homepage, I only found out about this link after using a proxy server!

I agree BUT it would only have been useful on the OLD home page and by the time we found out about this we could no longer update that.

I kept getting this switching until Sunday night and during the previous three days when I was in fact switching between three addresses ie the old server, the first address on the new server which was no longer working and the latest one. Most frustrating.

On Sunday afternoon I sent off an email to my service provider setting out all the details.

Then as from yesterday morning all seems to be fine. Later in the day I received a phone call from my provider saying that they had been having a problem communicating with the new server which was the cause of the problem and that they were working on it.

I'd imagine it would be - Running dozens of sites myself. So, are you on a VPS now, Or still shared hosting?

Hows this going? Was reading the Veolia NSW Fleet Changes and got excited seeing that Revesby had recieved a couple of buses... Then realised the posts were still not in order, and I was reading something from 2010!

I saw this series of outages as a chance to get away from this board once and for all. Now that everything seems to have finally been resolved, the addiction is starting to return again. Oh well.

That may not be the case as it is believed that now most if not all posts have been retrieved.

RE: The Veolia NSW Fleet Changes thread I posted about before, most of the time when I request to go to the first unread post it takes me to the correct place HOWEVER, there are still sporadic incidents of being punted to only page 34 (I think). This would happen around 1/5th of the time I guess

I thought it was just me but it has happened to me as well - probably in the same ratio.
