Server errors?

#1 Post by Utopia » Sun Jan 08, 2017 2:00 pm

Anyone else getting server errors? At the moment I can only access the forum with an old version of chromium. Firefox and the latest chromium gives
Forbidden
You don't have permission to access / on this server.
Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

That happens if you are using an old bookmark pointing to the old forum.mepiscommunity.org instead of the new forum.mxlinux.org

About a week ago I made the same error. My bookmarks had not been changes to https:\\. The re-direct had worked until then. Others may start to see this as well.

Yup I did.. when I moved to windows briefly last week to update my tomtom. Chrome didn't load the forum and I immediately thought of you. Checked the URL and walla, was up and running again.
