Does this happen all the time, consistently.

What internet connection does the laptop use ??  Is it not connected to the same router, but perhap via WiFi.

Can you Cut&Paste the exact message you're getting here.

You're missing one w in the website name, was that just a typo or are actually typing that into the tablet. ??

Also, if it all computers / tablets are using the same router and one has a problem, but not the others  at the same timing.... then the problem cannot be on the mcdrc server.

Ok so just to clarify.... it's only on the tablet, i assume this is your iPad, connected via WiFi to the same router that your laptop is connected to also, but you don't get this error message / problem on that.

If that's it it's not your broadband and nor is it the mcdrc server... has to be a connection problem with the WiFi / router... actually is your laptop connected to the router via WiFi also.

Perhaps you could turn off and restart your router.

I've got nothing to explain it ??

Have you at least got some kind of error message you're getting ??  Perhaps a Cut & Paste.

I can get in contact with the host company and see if we can find out if it's something they are doing, but would be nice to have something more to go on other than a random time.

OZLS is most likely hosted on another server, possibly even on another host all together... Redline might be able to confirm that.

With regards to this host, i logged a support ticket... and have been told that the server was rebooted today and some services had been restarted yesterday.  But, otherwise they tell me that the server has been online without any issues.

At this point i can only recommend clearing the cache....

No idea what might have happened to cause this outage, when i got up to go to work early this morning the forum was working, but i did notice that not one member had been online during my night time... which, at the time, i thought was very strange.

I will ask the host if they can explain what happened and get back to you all.
Title: Re: Forum Connection
Post by: BeatsMe on July 05, 2013, 06:32:38 PM
I have been in contact with the hosting company, and i have looked at the logs... the site appears to have not been down at all, in fact according to the logs there was traffic all night long  ??? ???

So i have not been able to make any sense of this.

Also, the ozlargescale forum has no connection with this forum, as far as servers or hosting goes.... as that forum is hosted by another hosting company.

Been transferring domains into my account just recently, so if you've been using www.mcdracingforum.com (http://www.mcdracingforum.com) you should not be experiencing any problems.... but, if you're using www.mcdracingforum.com (http://www.mcdracingforum.com) then you will experience problems.

Just waiting for the Nameservers to update, then all should be fixed.

However, that might not be the problem that you're experiencing.
