Server updates

Post by admin » Tue Nov 26, 2019 8:59 pm

Hi there

There may be a short period of downtime over the coming days as my server hosts are migrating from cpanel to Interworx behind the scenes, but in order to do this they need to provision a new VPS server and transfer all content over. In theory everything should just transfer over smoothly, but, the best laid plans etc...

I don't know when this migration will take place as they've quite a lot of customers doing the same (cpanel have drastically increased their charges, hence the demand for migrations). So bear with me whilst this is ongoing.

The main ClydeMaritime site was also starting to play up and has crashed a few times over the past week - don't know the cause, but because it was running a really old version of drupal that is no longer supported, I'm now in the middle of migrating it over to Wordpress with a slightly different look and feel, but the main items such as the arrivals and departures are all there and working. That hopefully will go live in the next few days, with ongoing tweaks after that.

Still waiting on the server to be transferred / upgraded - no indication as to when that will happen yet.

As of tonight though, the main clydemaritime.co.uk site has been swapped over on to the new wordpress-driven site. Everything looks as though it's ok. Should certainly be more stable and shouldn't crash. The only item that I'm needing to check and update manually are the X-Lighter entries as they didn't migrate properly.

UPDATE FEB 3rd 2020: The server containing all my websites is now in the process of being updated and synced to a new one. There may be some downtime over the next few days. I'm hoping there won't be any problems, but I'm in the hands of the support guys as most of what they're doing is beyond my level of knowledge!

Bear with me if there are any issues - it might take a few days to resolve (and I'm not around this coming weekend to fix things).

Test post

Apologies - had to change domain name servers and it broke links to the forum. It's still not right, but hopefully it's back up and running.

Hi all

Server update - 4th March:
The past few weeks have been a bit fraught! My main server became infected with a webshell exploit which affected my wordpress-based sites. They've all been migrated to a new server, including the main clydemaritime.co.uk site. However, I'm hoping to keep the forums on the old server for now as it was (as far as I can tell) unaffected by the exploit.

However, in order to try and keep things simple, the forums now have a new domain name, namely http://clydemaritimeforums.co.uk and this should be used to access the site from now on. The old forums.clydemaritime.co.uk address *should* redirect to the new address once the DNS settings have fully propagated around the internet.

Sorry for any inconvenience.
Stuart

There's an issue with the cookie settings on the forum. I *think* I've sorted them tonight, but if you keep getting logged out, or the 'remember me' button doesn't work let me know (it should only remember you for a max of 3 days, which was the setting used before the update).
