Server Move and Server Errors & Fatal Errors

All,

The site will go offline shortly ready for me to pack it up in to moving boxes and ship it from Japan back to sunny Melbourne. She'll be home in an hour or two.

Don't you wish you could pack up and move house that quickly?

This should solve the problem of the site failing to cope under any sort of load.

Nasher, seems ultra quick now which is brilliant. Only concern is there is no 'home' page.. Will this eventually change? I like where topics from both FAFFJH and the Melbourne section come up together..

Yes, this will fix once the demonland.com transfer takes place. Should only be a few hours.

If you're using the site2 address, remember to check back to normal demonland.com address every now and again.

I'll take this opportunity to remind everyone that Nasher really is the backbone to this site. The work he does behind the scenes is invaluable not to mention that it takes him away from his family.

I want to put together some money to pass along to him so if you would like to contribute you can do so in two ways.

You can take out a Demonland subscription here: http://demonland.com/forums/index.php?/subscriptions/

Or if you already have a subscription you can donate here: http://demonland.com/forums/index.php?/donate/

Cheers for all the work you put in Nasher.

I had a bit of trouble trying to log in, took me multiple attempts to finally get on. Changing pages seems to log me out as well, not sure if anyone else is experiencing issues like this. I'm using site2 address at the moment because demonland.com is still down for me so perhaps that's the issue?

That should resolve itself in the next few hours.

When you click on the Home button it is sending you to Demonland.com and because your ISP hasn't updated it's DNS records (read the article I linked above for a laymans explanation) it is still pointing to the site on the old server.

The site2.demonland.com/forums is forcing your ISP (Telstra, Optus etc) to take you to the new server.

When you click the Home button in the top left corner it is taking you to demonland.com and because your ISP hasn't updated yet it is taking you to the old server. This should update with 24 hours. You will know it has when you click the Home link and you see the DEMONLAND homepage or when you type in demonland.com and you see the standard homepage and not the site2 link.

Please don't bookmark or continue using the site2 link once the Home button takes you back to the standard Homepage.

The biggest culprit in slow DNS propagation is Telstra Bigpond.

i'm not sure that isps have any control over this demonland because its an automatic process

bigpond might seem to take longer because they are the biggest isp and therefore have the most dns servers to be updated

They do have control over it, it's up to them how often they refresh and so on. My Telstra phone is taking ages to see the new site, but my iinet home account saw it an hour or so later.

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had
