MBN moving hosts Tuesday, 9th of Februari
Tomorrow I will move the MBN to a new host, which means that it will be down for a while.

The move is going to start around 18:00 CET. After moving the latest files and restoring the database backup I will chance the DNS which can take up to an hour to propagate.
It should be a fairly simple task, so I do not think it will take a very long time.

Edit: Move complete. If you encounter any problems, please report them in this thread.

Thanks for letting us know.

Thank you ^^
May I ask why such an operation is in order ?

ChaosFish 2016-02-09 19:29

Mazel tov!

elmuerte 2016-02-09 21:08

The reason is simple. The current host is ceasing operation. So that's why everything is going to move.

elmuerte 2016-02-09 21:14

If you see this, then you should be looking at the moved MBN. I hope everything went correctly, but if you see anything weird, then please report so here.

Ship appears to be in working order. This guy survived the move this time around. Applauds to captain El!

The new server seem to be more responsive than the previous one.
Thanks for keep it alive :tup:

Lurker reports!
Opera web browser and Chrome report of possible danger if I try to go to MBN.
Son-of-the-woman-of-easy-virtue Chrome blocks me with NET::ERR_CERT_INVALID error.

elmuerte 2016-02-15 19:44

Then there might be something wrong with your browser(s). I recently switched MBN to HTTPS using "Let's encrypt"'s certificate stuff which is properly signed by a widely accepted Root CA. It also passes SSLLabs's test with an A mark.

For me Chrome shows no certificate issues. (Version 48.0.2564.109 m). The front page gets a "mixed content" warning due to the thumbnails pointing to the http part of MBN. But that's all. My IE11 also has no problems, just like my Firefox.

Works fine at home via Vivaldi browser on Ubuntu powered PC.

Looks like Windows XP PC on my work is not up to date or something...

Darkflame 2016-02-16 04:08

wow...someone other then me uses Vivaldi :P
(looks fine here as well, Windows10/Vivaldi)

elmuerte 2016-02-16 09:29

Windows XP?!... It looks like that's the problem as also explained here: . And by the looks of it they haven't tackled the problem.
Firefox might work on Windows XP.

Kroll 2016-02-18 01:04

Because Opera is unusable for me since it turned 15 :bloated:

Yeah, looks like old XP retired almost completely.

Polaris 2016-02-26 15:33

I can't see any quotes anymore... Is it a problem only I have ?
Chrome blocks me as well (windows 7)

Darkflame 2016-02-26 18:37

Nope, I have it too.
Quotes are erased from new posts - not just not visible, gone.

Earlier I thought it was just something funky when I quoted from moby games, but even writing "test" in quotes doesn't work.

Polaris 2016-02-27 02:21

For me, every quote is erased, even in the posts made before the moving :?

edit : after double checking, I can see quotes made before the move, but not afterwards.

I hate PHP :/

Should be fine now for new stuff. Old posts need to be re-rendered (I hope).

Darkflame 2016-02-29 23:18

I tried some old threads and it worked for me.
So fingers crossed its ok everywhere now.

Polaris 2016-03-01 01:49

Cool, thanks a lot El |)
I mean, not for fixing what you're in charge of, but for having remained in charge of this place and keeping it running fine after all these years :)

Polaris 2016-03-16 22:42

I think what Niborius reported might have to do with this.

Chrome on Windows XP should now work.

K. A. T. 2016-04-08 16:58 sometimes after login

elmuerte 2016-04-09 01:05

I think/hope I fixed that now.

K. A. T. 2016-04-10 20:05

Ok, I think it is ok now:) thanks:)
