Re: NEW MARS MOVING TO MARS SOCIETY SERVER IMMINENT

We got the DNS stuff and we're moving to the Mars Society server today or tomorrow. (Tonight actually.)

In the meantime things will be in flux as the DNS propagates. Sorry for the short warning. sad

Re: NEW MARS MOVING TO MARS SOCIETY SERVER IMMINENT

What's the new server IP?

If the new DNS record is unavailable locally, we can go direct.

Re: NEW MARS MOVING TO MARS SOCIETY SERVER IMMINENT

It hasn't happened quite yet, they decided to change the contact first before doing the move, it may be a few days yet, still. I personally am reading the "registrar lock" differently than they are, but they know more about this than me.

The IP is 206.246.118.100.

If you go to c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts in notepad and put this in there:

206.246.118.100 www.newmars.com

You can see the new site.

I'm not moving the *forums* yet because it's still active here and once the DNS move goes ahead I'll lock them down and then do the move. It has to be at one big moment, and I'm still unsure as to when the DNS change will go ahead. smile

Thanks.

http://206.246.118.100/  directs to the Mars Society's portal page, so will the forums be reachable on http://206.246.118.100/newmars/forums  ?

Re: NEW MARS MOVING TO MARS SOCIETY SERVER IMMINENT

It uses Apache's virtual hosting, so your web browser will make a request for www.newmars.com, and the IP address / host will automatically transfer to the proper page. You can't actually view the host with www.marssociety.org/newmars (even though that *is* the path that it uses), because it does the lookup backwards and you wind up coming *back* to NewMars.com via your DNS. That may in fact be a security issue because I don't think that's supposed to happen.

The forums will be at www.newmars.com/forums as usual.
