Moving forum to new hosting
« on: January 29, 2020, 05:22:52 AM »
Well, en.war2.ru, tv.war2.ru, occult.war2.ru moved already.

Now it's time to move forum.

Splitting the forum database into 2 different names: old one will be named old.forum.war2.ru
New one will be named forum.war2.ru

Waiting till dns complete migration (should take several hours).
After that if you still have old forum instead of new one, try to update your dns:
reboot your computer and reboot your router to make them apply new dns servers.

Well, looks like most people can see this forum moved to new hosting!
Yesterday we got a drop of views/visitors amount because of domain moving, but everything should restore now!
Also i moved the forum data about a week ago and just updated the database yesterday, right after locked the old forum, to prevent splitting actual data.
So, attachments between a week ago and yesterday should have been disappeared. I can restore them if that's critical, but i hope that will not be a big problem.

Let me know if something else became broken after migration.

IL please fix the links for the forums. If you go through the RU website it is fine but if you Google "war2ru" and click on forum page from there, you get this every time. This is 100% going to turn people away.


Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to forum.war2.ru. If you visit this site, attackers could try to steal information like your passwords, emails, or credit card details.

What can you do about it?

The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it. You can notify the website’s administrator about the problem.
