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.

Re: Server migration - status, discussion

Is this new site hosted on Digital Ocean like the main .com site? if so why no footer announcing the host?

Yes — all the Textpattern sites are migrating to the DigitalOcean server infrastructure. The txpmag.com site has been largely untouched since the most recent issue, so consider the footer a to-do item.

Re: Server migration - status, discussion

All is working well for me, already. Great!

I’ve watched on my Android phone that Netguard (a firewall/VPN) showed attempts to connect to the txpmag.com domain, on port 80 I think cause I lazily typed just the domain. When I approved these connection requests their entries changed to textpattern.com, while the browser’s URL field displayed the expected txpmag.com. Just out of interest: How’s that happening, please, and why?

It’s possible your firewall is following links. Some images on txpmag.com link to textpattern.com, and your firewall might pre-fetch details about linked sites.
