Forum Issues 19/08/19

Post by stewartm » Mon Aug 19, 2019 11:52 am

A number of people are experiencing issues connecting to the forum. We are aware and are attempting to resolve. The root issue appears to be DNS related and will, eventually, effect everybody.

If you are comfortable making changes to you PC, a temporary workaround will be to add:
to your hosts file.

We are working to get it sorted ASAP.

Cheers and sorry folks :oops:

Aha - just had a text from John confirming he has got to the bottom of the issues. The way DNS caching works, some people may continue to see issues for a little while, but it should gradually get back to normal. :thumleft:

We have had some issues today, but we'll get to the source of the problem and deal with it.

Apologies for the outage folks.

A friend of mine who owns KAM Racing had an issue with his website, not sure if its the same problem or not.
But basically the internet was running out of IP addresses and he had to change the version of Internet his website was based on. Had to move from ipv4 to ipv6.

Following on from the issues we've had over the past few days, there'll be a planned downtime at around 10am tomorrow morning for some upgrades.

It shouldn't take more than 30mins, and will probably be less.
