Re: Server migration - status, discussion

Hi,
FYI, on the main textpattern.com domain, the Documentation and Themes menu items are still linked to the .io extension.

Hi Nicolas! The documentation is currently living on .io (so that is correct), but will soon move to .com instead. There is some work happening today and during this week, philwareham and I are continuing with behind-the-scenes work to consolidate and simplify some things.

Edit: now moved to docs.textpattern.com

Re: Server migration - status, discussion

Docs are now at docs.textpattern.com. We still need to redirect any traffic that goes to docs.textpattern.io, but that will happen during this week.

Done.

I’m tail-ing the log files, but it looks like anything hitting docs.textpattern.io transfers quickly and seamlessly to an equivalent URL on docs.textpattern.com with a 301 redirect as the cherry on the frosting on the cake.

Re: Server migration - status, discussion

Hi again,
Thanks for your work on the migration.
I just noticed that any search on the forum renders a 404 error because it is searching on the .com domain while the forum is still on the .io.

Oh, yes. The forum is partway migrated (I’ve update some of the codebase for the new home). This will be fixed as the site moves to the new server very soon.

The search now bounces back through to the correct site, so that functionality is restored.

Forum migration is likely to be next week – the .com move has provided a few challenges that need fine tuning before we continue, a few too many little odds and ends outstanding at the moment for my liking, and since the forum represents the most-accessed Textpattern site (by a clear margin), I want to make sure the transition is as smooth as it can be.

Is this issue related ?

Re: Server migration - status, discussion

As I could not find the answer to this except the “kindly hosted by Digital Ocean” found in the bottom of this forum, I thought i should just ask. Where did we migrate? Or are we still in the process?

The process is ongoing. I’m going to be addressing some outstanding issues over the weekend, and by the middle of next week I should have an schedule for moving the forum (which is the big one).

There is a lot of redirecting and rehoming involved with this move, and unpicking some legacy systems that need to be modernised for the next n years to come.

I’m mostly done with this, except the cache rules which will be set in the next few days as things settle.

The domain registrar, DNS provider and host have all changed in the previous 48 hours. This means there will be an inevitable delay as the various systems around the world update and the dust settles.

This might be a bit messy for a few days. I will explain…

The new txpmag.com server runs on https, and enforces it. The old txpmag.com server is not running https.

This means that you may get an SSL/TLS error if you access https://txpmag.com on the old server. If you visit http://txpmag.com and it doesn’t redirect to https://txpmag.com you’re on the old server. If you visit the site and you see https://txpmag.com and it works, all good!

Clear your browser cache, clear your DNS cache, sit tight and try again in a few days — some or all of these may help you in your quest for https nirvana.

Questions? Please ask, I will try my best to answer honestly.

Edit: I really can’t write words very well today.
