Default New server coming soon

Hi everyone,

JDMCITY has been hosted on a dedicated server ever since its launch date in 2003. It had moved across 3 different dedicated hosting services, over the last few years. Its current host has served it very well for over 5 years and I have been very pleased with them. However, I noticed a few downtimes on this site more often than usual recently. Therefore, I am switching to a new server soon. The server specs are as follows:

Current:

Intel Celeron 2.4Ghz
512MB DDR Ram
120GB Hard Drive
CentOS 5.5


New:

AMD Opteron Dual-Core 2Ghz (Denmark)
2GB DDR Ram
250GB Hard Drive
CentOS 5.5

By moving to the new server, I hope it will be more stable and faster for everyone.

Regards,
Han

Is the new server going to change the page layout at all?

It happens to me too. Something is weird with the DNS. Sometimes non-www works, and sometimes www works.

First try, http://jdmcity.com.
If that does not work, try http://www.jdmcity.com

The server has been up 52 days and running strong without reboot.

About 75% of the time I cannot access jdmcity. I try both www and just jdmcity.com and it still says "webpage is unavailable".

Is there anything on my part I can do to fix it? Delete cookies?

I'm using Google Chrome web browser.


EDIT: The only way I can get on is by clicking a jdmcity.com for sale link that someone posted on a friends facebook account. I have to log onto facebook, click the link, and then I can get on.

That is very interesting. I wonder anyone else is having this same problem. Please chime in.

Greg, try deleting cookies or try FireFox when that happens. Please let me know how it goes.

I have forced non-www URLs to www now. If you type in http://jdmcity.com, you will get to http://www.jdmcity.com. This fixes a logon issue I noticed when you log on via a non-www link, and then open a link on the forum with www in it, causing you to be logged off (or vice-versa). This also affects internet cookies too, the same way.

Not sure if this will fix the "page not found" problem at hand, but it is a start.

I have restarted Apache and DNS on the server. Hope it resolves the issue. Please let me know. Your feedback is very important in this troubleshooting process.

Default Re: New server coming soon

Very strange issue. I finally rebooted the server for the first time. It was up 50+ days since the migration. I hope rebooting fix the problem as some configurations such as IP BIND, DNS, etc. needed a reboot sometimes.

If you are unable to access the site sometimes, please let me know. If you are able to access it using mobile phones when it's down, please let me know exactly how (e.g. typing www.jdmcity.com or jdmcity.com, etc.).

Thanks,
Han
