Is the home page still down?
« on: October 02, 2014, 03:10:43 pm »
When you enter "http://news.theopenmat.com/" this is what I get:

It works!
This is the default web page for this server.
The web server software is running but no content has been added, yet.

I only got in because I tried the college section instead of the main page.

Seems fine to me.

Been back operational for most of the week. The whole network of sites was down for a few days while Ray worked on fixing a hosting screw up. Once the forum came back up, the rest of the sites did. Matter of clearing out the cache.

Still does this to me.

solved it for me too; however, I'm sure it prevents many from visiting.

it seems to me that the first thing I do is hit "refresh" when a page doesn't pop up when I click on it.  the second thing I do is start shouting at my computer if it then doesn't show up

It wouldn't prevent anyone from visiting ... it might deter them from returning. Don't think there's ever been a time where a site I frequent heavily is not functional for a day or two and I just avoid the site after that moment. Sometimes tech and server issues take more than one time through to fix them.

Haven't had any issues to my knowledge for at least a week. And if you still get that screen, then we're talking about the user side that needs to clean out its cache. That's not something anyone is able to do for you if they're not sitting at your desk or has a remote access to your machine.

Appreciate the concern, but looks like it's all square now.

If it is someone checking out the site for the first time or someone trying a couple of times and they get  the "error" page, they might not try again.  Sure, it may only be a few.

If people give up that easily to view wrestling news, then I don't know what to tell you. I thought wrestling people tried harder than regular folks.

Point still stands. Years of consistency will not be undone by three tough days of server issues.  Ifor people quit going to a site and quit checking after one bad weekend, then that's on them
