    We have a new web server that is much, much more powerful then the current one.

    Before we put it into production and change the DNS, I would like a bit of help testing before doing so. We have to install a lot of PHP modules/settings and sometimes newer PHP/Apache conflicts with the older software.


    For those who are tech savvy please map this site in your HOSTS file:


    216.166.0.70 www.beekeepingforums.com
    216.166.0.70 beekeepingforums.com


    Close your browser, hop back on and use the site using this server, any issues report them here.

    I changed the DNS so it should be propagating slowly for everyone.

    If you notice anything wrong with the website, please post it here.

    Unless you setup different mapping with the www and non www, you are seeing the same server, HOSTS file encompasses all browsers.

    OK. Can you give me a direct address I can type in my PC and I will keep this one open on my mac.

    I am not sure what you mean. We changed DNS so it should have propagated by now for all. You should be using the new server regardless of that HOSTS edit.

    You can run cmd and ping beekeepingforums.com.

    If it says .70 at the end, that's the new server.

    I'm on the new server and it's very snappy. Looks good!

    For those on windows do this:

    1. Click the Start Button then click "All Programs"
    2. Click Accessories then "Command Prompt"
    3. In the window that pops up type in "ping www.beekeepingforums.com" without the quotes and hit enter.
    4. If the top line reads "Pinging www.beekeepingforums.com [216.166.0.70] with 32 bytes of data" then you are on the new server.

    I have it on both the PC and the mac.
    Thanks.
    All seems to be working now and much faster, except for the bottom window. When can we have it back?
