    Wifi issues *might* still be DNS cache related, depending how long ago the DNS change was made.

    We are now on a new IP address and your wifi service is not updating It’s dns as quickly as telstra/Optus. Our dns entry had a 24hr cache setting, which when you know you plan to change IP you will set to a cache of 5 min or less a week prior.

    It got changed around 4am this morning so for some it will be erratic connection for a day or so until the ip change flushes through all the public networks.

    Sadly, quite true.

    That moment, when you realise what you have done and your heart sinks...

    I have no idea what all that means - all I know is that I got up early (04:30) on Sat morning as usual, and started my normal daily routine - emails, skim IG and then see what's happening on Active Topics on the forums and was met with living hell in Lockdown city. No ski.com.au - had to actually venture out into the world and see what was up. Please don't do that again - I'm quite happy in my inner eastern 'burbs bubble.

    I'm kinda glad computer stuff doesn't just go wrong for me.

    In a morbid kind of way it's reassuring when even the experts have trouble. Thank you for your efforts over the weekend, hope you get to have a commensurate break this week.

    Wait

    Wait did I read that right

    You had to rewrite your code to be compatible with a new version of PHP before you could get the site back up?

    Holy sh#. I understood all of that, and that is one hell of an outage. So sorry mate.

    Might work (or not). Otherwise, change the upstream DNS in your modem from "ISP supplied" to "8.8.8.8" "1.1.1.1". Or wait a few more hours.

    But we're up to PHP v7.4 now. :D

    A little bit of downtime never hurt, the main thing is you got the server rebuilt/back up! :emoji_beers:

    Ha.

    Downtime because of a problem with the server - honestly that's the best kind of downtime, because it's in the control of the server administrator (Richard). Plus it was productive, ultimately. :)
