Update (11:40 a.m. CT, Aug. 4): I believe I’ve worked out the major, persistent bugs:
- SSL certificate: The https:// domain should now be completely propagated and not throwing errors/stopping some functionality.
- Patreon connection: Logging in through Patreon should behave normally now.
- Commenting display: The CSS file didn’t survive the migration, so I had to manually create the directory where it was located. This should now be fixed and not subject to caching.
If things still look odd on a random page, do a hard-refresh on your cache (CTRL-F5). Another way to test whether it’s your local caching is to add a question mark and anything after the URL. For instance: https://soxmachine.com/?asdfsfa
Let me know if there’s anything else.
Previously (Aug. 3, 1:46 a.m.): Thanks to the draft and an active trade deadline, Sox Machine set a record for traffic in July, so maybe my host wanted to knock me down a peg in August. But if you believe the official story, a datacenter went down and took the whole provider’s US network down with it.
The first story is probably less troubling, but either way, Sox Machine is on a new host now. I was planning on upgrading since the site seemed to be groaning under the weight of the traffic, and that didn’t bode well if the Sox made a deep October run. It just forced an outage of half a day, and and an entire’s day work researching, migrating, and then working out the kinks, when I’d like to be saving at least some of it for writing.
Anyway, it looks like the site is up and running now, with only a few issues to work out with regards to images. Once that’s resolved, I’ll post an update, after which you can inform me of what else isn’t looking right. Thanks.
