META: New site updates

As you’ve seen from the most excellent Ben Finn below, we’ve migrated the server over to the new host, but with some problems. Specifically, the Premium content pages and the forums aren’t letting people log in.

Ben (and I, but mostly Ben) is working assiduously to figure out what the bug is. I apologize for the inconvenience and frustration, but hopefully things’ll be squared away soon. In the meantime, the apps all still work so you can continue to create away.

A big THANK YOU to Ben for handling all this, too!

  1. Status update?

  2. Last night Ben basically got everything ready to be redone, and tonight he’s having to basically rewrite/reinstall almost everything.

    The fundamental problem is that for some reason WordPress is not setting the cookie that says “This person is logged in”. Tracking that down has been very hard but we’re working on it.

    Is that why we can’t post to the forums?

  4. Niall, yes, that’s the reason no one can post to the forums. We made a server OS change last night, and today/tonight we’re going to tackle a couple of different methods we hope will resolve it once and for all.
