    Hello all,

    I'm pleased to say that we are now on the new server, so hopefully we can now consign the "server busy" messages to history!

    However, there are a few glitches we are aware of and some, doubtlessly, that we are not.

    I would be very grateful, therefore, if you would post any bugs you stumble upon in this thread.

    We are aware of the following:


    1. Users not receiving email updates
    2. Avatars and Signature images missing
    3. Avatar/signature upload problems
    4. Webroot redirect not working
    Hopefully we'll get everything cleared up very soon.....

    Thanks,

    SJ

    Ed, would you please be a bit clearer? Where, exactly, can you not post? All threads or threads in one particular forum?

    Thanks,

    Ed? Who's Ed?;):D
    Can't say exactly which part of the forum it was. I was trying to respond to various threads I subscribe to, (Through email notification). But it has happened maybe 4 or 5 times in the past few days. When it happened, it effected every post I tried to respond to. What typically would happen is, I would get all the way to submitting a response and after clicking the button, the entire page turns white, and there's a short message in the very top left hand corner. Can't remember what it said though. If it happens again, I'll make a note of it.

    Sounds like a DNS connection error. That wouldn't be a forum issue as much as an Internet connection issue. I get that from time to time as well, more often that most people because I connect via satellite, and not just to this forum.

    It could be just that the route between you and the server has had some periodic issues over the last few days.

    SJ, uploading pictures to my album gives the following errors:

    Warning: fopen(./albumpics/3/3410.picture) [function.fopen]: failed to open stream: Permission denied in [path]/includes/class_dm_picture.php on line 488


    Failed to write file. Check disc quotas and permissions for the path: ./albumpics/thumbs/3/9499d02147791b5b562b8924b7fd00ac_3410.jpg

    I think I got the same thing:
    Failed to write file. Check disc quotas and permissions for the path: ./albumpics/thumbs/3/0273e2abf94c7c4cf8d72e5784039ce5_3411.jpg

    I created an album, tried to upload two photos (both under 20KB), and got that error message.

    I also tried using the paper clip "manage attachment" thing and kept getting the "upload failed" message with no explanation.

    I try to respond to a post and when I click submit it repeatedly says "page not found" in the upper left corner. I can post other responses but every now and then one won't work, no matter how many times I try it.

    Yup, that's the same message I was also getting when trying to respond to some posts.

    Me too, in fact I'll be surprised if this post posts. :(

    Ok, that's me surprised, it's the 1st of several test posts I've tried over a couple of days and the 1st ever, to go through. I'm trying to reply on the National Forums > South African Vapors forum with no luck (or is that njoy), whatsoever.

    Here is something really odd about this problem. Last night I could not respond to a particular post due to the page not found error. I could respond to other posts in the same subforum just fine. But every time I went back to that thread I had the same problem, It's hit and miss.

    I do know that one of the threads I had trouble responding to, is also one of the threads that lost some posts during the server switch.

    I don't know what the problem is but I have found a work-around.

    The failing posts were fairly long, about 4 paragraphs. When the above posts in this thread went through, I tried breaking up the failing posts into short posts of 1 or 2 paragraphs, and then they went through ok. Maybe some sort of character limit kicking in?

    I haven't been able to browse the site since Saturday, pages take literally 5 minutes to load, but now I'm browsing through an anonymous proxy, Anonymouse.org, I can browse just fine? I'm in South Africa but it doesn't seem to be affecting all members from here.
