    Is it just me or has this site been up and down for the last week. I had a few weird things happening..... I can see the forum using my mobile device on 3G but on my uncapped MWEB account - can't get to the forum

    Then tried at work (last week) and nope nothing. Now I am sitting at work and it's working.
    @viper357 - anything going on in the back round?

    Nope, we've had no downtime for ages. Mweb seems to have a habit of caching websites and not updating it for months on end. There is a trick to it which Rory knows, I think you have to click on our bookmark or whatever, then before the page loads quickly hit the stop button then click refresh.

    Maybe both carriers are kak :p I've checked the logs and we've had zero downtime since early July. Maybe try clearing the cache on those devices?

    I think so. Nobody else has reported issues. Can you access other sites on tapatalk?

    Is this only happening on tapatalk?

    Yip, I definitely remember other people having issues with mweb previoously. More than likely they've cached our site when it was down when me moved servers over a month ago and they haven't updated their cache or DNS or whatever it is that they do. Tell them our IP address changed as well, maybe that's got them all confused.

    Can you try "ping" the site next time you have issues and maybe see what ip address you get and/or if it's pingable?

    sounds like a pebkac error to me @mytank
    or a picnic error























    PEBKAc - problem exists between keyboard and chair
    PICNIC - Problem in Chair not Computer...

    ;)

    I also have problems lately when using tappatalk to log on to the forum. It may be a random app error?
    I get logged out at times, other times the forum appears to be unavailable while I can access MASA quite happily from my laptop...

    Technology are only there to confuse us more...
