Update on Forum Issues Since Moving Servers

On Tuesday, June 20, 2006 at 7am Eastern, we are moving the SEW Forums to a new server. It will take anywhere from a few minutes to maybe a day until the domain system starts to point at the new server.

You will know you are at the new server if you are able to read and post threads. If you are still sent to the old server, you'll see a temporary URL that will point you to to a new server until the domain changeover is complete.

Otherwise, the forum URL will remain: http://forums.searchenginewatch.com

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause in the short term.

##

Thanks everyone for your patience in advance - once we move the forums and upgrade them, we'll be able to do some other improvements that we've had on our to-do list.

It would be interesting to do an information DNS propagation test... have people post as they get the site on the new server. Wouldn't be the same as if you had a team of people all over the world trying every five minutes, but it will still have some entertainment value.

Good luck with the move.

10.52 pm Sydney time (i.e. GMT +10 i.e. Australian Eastern Standard time...) - I tried earlier - got the 'moving' message - tried http://beta.forums.searchenginewatch.com but got a 404.

All is good now.....

I couldn't log in at first. I tried switching off ZoneAlarm, but that didn't help. I then closed Firefox and restarted it. Then I could log in, but after the login, i was taken from forums.searchenginewatch.com to beta.forums.searchenginewatch.com, making me log in again.

I've sent a note over to the developers to look at the issue. If others can't log in, try restarting your browsers.

No problems logging in here, of course I'm always fashionably late to the party.

Oh my gawd, I think I've joined a forum way over my head! Yikes!

I'm simply trying to learn how be found by SE.

5:38pm PDT in the San Francisco Bay area...

Noting that the home page nav url has apparently been changed. Before, it was...

http://forums.searchenginewatch.com/forum/index.php

Now, if click on the "Search Engine Watch Forums" link from the top breadcrumbs, you get...

http://forums.searchenginewatch.com/?

From the logo, there's no question mark.

That's how it is in my Windows Favorites, but the new way (without the extra redundant folder) seems more correct and easier to remember for type-ins.

Then you've come to exactly the right place! And welcome to SEW Forums, just pull up a chair and start reading.

Hmmm... Some posts are missing...

Hi Folks,

I know you have your hands full with this changeover, but I thought you should know that some posts from yesterday are missing.

I was about to reply to another poster in a Google thread who asked me a question yesterday afternoon, but his post is gone today...

Not a big deal, but it may look a little odd if I post an answer to myself...

I still have to login every time I come back to the forums. Also just now, while viewing the forums after logging in and being active on it, it asked me to log in again.

On Apple Safari 2.0.3

I use IE and everything is working A-OK. Maybe a browser compatibility issue?

the developers have told me this so far about the login issue:

Logging out is likely to be a cookie problem, at a guess. If there's more than 20 mins between your uses of the forums then there's a 50/50 chance of you ending up on the other web server -which may invalidate your cookie.

They are looking into it further
