Jeepinohio.com (a PHP based BB) has been having some wierd problems for the last week or so.

Occasionally all the newer threads dissapear but then reappear several days later but things appear to be getting worse now. Yesterday and today it has been switching back and forth between where newer threads show and the version where they don't.

If you post a new thread in either version it seems to stay with that version
and reappear with it. My initial thought was his server was doing some sort of system restore for whatever reason, but the switching back and forth really baffles me. Of course in either case I really have no clue just guessing

Anyone got any ideas

If you are switching hosts it maybe flopping back and forth for some strange reason. I will have to see if the site trace route changes with the content changes though. Right now the site is tracing to fs6.msshost.com 74.200.217.234

Ok well I haven't had it happen to me yet. :dunno: I think you may be on the right track though Terry. Best guess I have right now is th data base resides on 2 servers a primary and secondary. The primary is having trouble and you get redirected to the secondary. I can't prove jack though because it hasn't happened to me.

Score just got back from lunch and jeepinohio was flipped. There is a second server out there and trace routes are resolving to pro48.msshost.com 67.15.45.22 instead of the other address I mentioned before witch seems to be the main. That is probably the problem right there you folks need to resolve to the fs6.msshost.com/74.200.217.234 and it is flip flopping on you all. This is a problem with the hosting providers servers or routing. Well that would be my best guess at this point.

No problem. BTW I won't make to your house next Saturday to help out. I will be down your way though and may swing by to distract progress though.:D Steph and I will be going to the Wayne county fair Saturday for the tractor pulls and family.
