New Server, Board Upgrade et al!!

Postby mark » Fri May 16, 2014 9:38 am

OK, guys, over the weekend we are going to move Codeinefree to a new server and upgrade the board to v3. There are some pluses and minuses to the move though...

Main pluses:
Faster board
Tapatalk so you can use an Android or iPhone to read and post

Main minuses:-
It will cost more
Games pages won't initially work, probably a couple of others also..

Given the ability to use Tapatalk, this outweighs the negatives. As our ip will change, you may need to clear the dns cache on your computer. to do this:-

Windows (This is from memory!)
1. Click on Start.
2. Click on Run.
3. Enter cmd in the box.
4. A black window should appear. Enter ipconfig /flushdns and press enter.
5. It'll say something to the effect that the DNS cache has been flushed.
6. Type exit and press enter to make the black box go away.

Linux
1. Open a Terminal window.
2. Enter sudo /etc/init.d/nscd restart and press enter.
3. Iif you don't have nscd installed, it can be installed by sudo apt-get install nscd

Apple Mac
Sorry, I haven't a clue.

Hopefully it will be a smooth transition without too much disruption...
Regards,

Mark

I'm sorry but I don't give advice by pm. Sorry

Mark I think you've spent enough of your own money on this, could you kindly consider a paypal donate button?
I think we've all taken advantage of your generosity for far too long and some people may want to help with your costs.
