    Site Maintenance

    Hello,

    I will be taking the site down for maintenance sometime today. Unfortunately there might be some data loss and we could lose posts from this morning. If you could please take a backup of any post you have made this morning, please repost them once the maintenance period is over. I will update this thread once maintenance is complete.

    Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

    Not sure how widespread this is but I am finding that when I edit a post (either my own or someone else's) the edit seemingly fails to complete (the circle next to "Save" keeps going around and around), but has in fact gone through. (Like this - testing.)

    Unintended double-posting also seems to be more common since yesterday. I've seen four examples today so far.

    Unintended double-posting is indeed now far more common - for example two posts on thread http://www.chesschat.org/showthread....604#post405604

    I had the same issue this morning and also had the unintended double posting resulting from apparent non-save issue. On the plus side no content seems to have been lost.

    I wasn't able to reproduce the double post issue, but I have fixed an error that was showing up. It may have fixed the problem. Could you please test and let me know if there are still any issues?

    Edit: Apparently the PHP version is a bit too new for this version of VB. I will recompile Apache/PHP with the same versions as the old server now. You may notice a couple of minutes of downtime. Also I have reproduced the "SAVE" issue when editing a post. Will try and get this fixed today.

    Edit: The edit post function is now fixed. I'm assuming this has fixed the double posting issue, but since I was not able to reproduce it, please let me know if you experience any double posts again.

    I am not seeing any more double posts from anyone so far.

    Yes, no longer any issues with posting. Thanks STML.

    I wasn't sure if it was my computer causing that problem or not because I use an older laptop to access the web.

    I'll be doing some maintenance on and off today. The site may go down for 5-10 minutes at a time.

    I am now getting:

    "This site can’t be reached www.chesschat.org’s server IP address could not be found.
    Try running Windows Network Diagnostics.
    DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN"

    on many of my attempts to load the site.

    However this only happens intermittently, and it seems that loading it as chesschat.org rather than www.chesschat.org fixes the problem and causes it to stay fixed for some time.

    Anyone else having this issue? May just be me for some reason.
