Our apologies if you’ve had problems accessing the OVF website this week – here’s an update.
The OVF website moved servers last weekend but it appears that a rogue setting on the server meant some users experienced problems.
In simple terms, it meant that some users were directed to the old server while the majority of users were (correctly) directed to the new server.
Users directed to the old server experienced unexpected links, 404 errors and other odd events.
Rob has now spoken to technical support and the settings were checked and corrected. This was done on Wednesday and will take up to 48 hours to propagate across the Internet.
Once it has, everyone should be correctly accessing the new server.
Rob apologises for any inconvenience caused. However, the benefits of the new server in the long-term will help the site so hopefully it was some short-term pain for long-term gain!
