Like I said over on the status blog, I think I could probably migrate the server in my sleep with my hands tied. :p

Great, it’s a date then! Next Friday everyone prepare for another tour of the Scenic Server Route… Actually nevermind. I never want to see another server again in my life! :Sp

What type of admin offers a personal date, only to instantly retract it ? ;)

Sounds like a bit of leftover old DNS caching.

I see, thanks for the info.

I’ve flushed my DNS cache but seems like I can only access any page of BLF with the no-ip site now.

Weird, the normal site was working 10 minutes ago. Smile

I’m sure this will go away, thanks for all this!

My pleasure.

Did you try flushing the router, OS, and browser DNS caches?

I cleared the OS and browser’s cache but don’t know how to reset the router’s cache, but that’s okay, I’ll be fine. Thanks for your support, and again it’s blazing fast!

Surfing Budget Light Forums again…for the very first time…

We all really do appreciate all of your work, sb. I can only imagine how frustrating it gets when things don’t run like you know you want them too. Add to that the feedback you get when things load slowly or not at all, and I’m sure it’s a perfect recipe for a first-class headache.

It doesn’t go without being appreciated by the vast majority of folks here.

Wishing you a very blessed and merry Christmas!

Laughing

He's at work with his usual fervor

Unseen by the casual observer

It must surely suck

To rely on blind luck

That this one will be a good server

 

Best Wishes , SB

We love ya man

Sweet. Anybody else still stuck on the temporary URL? I’m going to leave it up for about another 24 hours and then remove it.

Oops, thanks very much for letting me know. It’s fixed now. I will later be setting up a re-direct from the www -> non-www.

You are indeed getting very proficient at this! Not one of those things you really strive to excel in, but it’s a good thing to know when necessary! ;)

Working so fast I’m 2 days behind already….

The server move worked very smooth, especially with the alternate link to the new server.

But the email notification is not working yet.

The last one I got was yesterday. This may mean that a spamfilter somewhere is removing them.

Yeah, my spam filter blocked the new notifications, but whitelisted them and they are working fine now. Might have been looking at cached SPF record or something.

Thanks guys. I think I fixed the last remaining email delivery issues, and it should be friendly to spam filters and strict email providers.

I also took down the temporary access subdomain, looks like everyone should be back by now.

I also noticed the email notifications in the FROM: field say “noreply@budgetlightforum.com” instead of “Budget Light Forum” like they used to.

Usually that kind of thing happens when you use a naked email address instead of one in the form of “English Name” [space][less than symbol] someone@someplace.com [greater than symbol]
Email clients usually use the part of the email in quotes for the FROM: field and only show the email address in that field if no description is available. Oh, and www is working now, thanks! My bookmark to this site has the www so I originally thought the site was down because my bookmark didn’t work.

Edit: Sorry, I meant the FROM field.

OK, I’ll give it a try. Actually it will look like BudgetLightForum.com <noreply@bugetlightforum.com>. It should be implemented now. We’ll just have to make sure that it doesn’t affect message deliverability.
