Daily Page down or is it just me?

Postby Bwis53 » Tue Jul 24, 2018 8:14 pm

I've got AT&T DSL and an IMac. Just this evening, my bookmark for here and my Last Pass login give me the following message: Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.

We can’t connect to the server at forum.isthmus.comucp.php.
If that address is correct, here are three other things you can try:

Try again later.
Check your network connection.
If you are connected but behind a firewall, check that Firefox has permission to access the Web.

and:
No route found for "GET /forum/index.php"

I got here by clicking on history. What's up?

Re: Daily Page not down but ain't quite right

It's been acting weird for me today. The bookmark I usually use (goes directly to "active posts") wasn't working but I got in via the main page. That link does seem to be working on here tho.

Also, when replying to this message it gave me that error message when trying to log in ( "path not found") I had to first log in via the "login" link first and then hit reply to make this work.

Added: after posting this it also gave me that error message rather than taking me back to this thread.

Something is amiss. Russian hackers?

Nope, that doesn't work either.

It isn't just you -- it's acting funny over here too but I seem to be able to work around it.

Same here. Less convenient but not impossible to get around.

My old link to the active topics quit working today. I thought the site was down but got to the forum through the front page. Looks like they've done some code update, shifted a server or two, changed some urls, stuff like that. I get the impression it was a major update with some but not too many hiccups, most of them fixed.

I would have preferred a heads up but that's probably my inner IT guy.

This is what I get sometimes when I post:
No route found for "GET /forum/viewtopic.php"

Further checking: No route found for "GET /"

I did a fresh installation, and then restored the content of the database with ACP-tool.
But I found a solution for this. I just altered the .htaccess and added 'DirectoryIndex index.php'.

My emphasis added.

Admin could try adding "DirectoryIndex index.php" to the .htaccess file. However when you get that error while posting, the post goes through anyhow. The site techs apparently changed something.

This is a work around from the phpBB website.

Yes same problems here. Instead I google search for the forum and it comes up. A heads up would have been nice.

Something is redirecting this link in my bookmarks (and yes, the bookmark itself is correct):

https://forum.isthmus.com/viewforum.php/?f=60

to this link

https://forum.isthmus.comviewforum.php/?f=60

with that one key slash stripped out. When I reinsert the slash to go to the proper URL, I get a very poorly formatted page. Every other link I've encountered appears to work fine.

EDIT: and when I tried to post this comment, I got the GET error mentioned above.

I deleted my old bookmark then went to google to get to the Isthmus homepage. I then went to the forum active posts and reset my bookmark. Works fine (for now).

Edit, after posting the above, I got the GET error, but it posted correctly.

Looks like the site maybe just went to https, or if it was a while ago, then my https-less bookmark finally stopped getting redirected properly.
