Re: Random Account Switching - DUPLICATE MOD PLEASE REMOVE

Edit: Does this look familiar friends? ... "On shared hosting varnish cache will not be enabled by default. When your account performance is high, it gets enabled automatically. By adding the code, we can disable to some extent. But there is no way to clearly stop that or disable it. In order to dis...

Re: Random Account Switching

I'll be honest in saying, they have left my root directory a MESS!!! ... 3 /public_html folders with 2 renamed and on close inspection, I see one graphics folder missing on "active" /public_html folder. That's all I see on initial checking right now, so could explain why most web pages have broken l...

Re: Random Account Switching

In live chat right now and hosting rep is resorting to restoring our entire site data to Friday at 11pm - fingers crossed it fixes EVERYTHING!!! ... as I can live with some minor data loss (posts or small data changes on all websites involved). I wish you good luck, but varnish cache has nothing to...

Re: Varnish issue in 3.1.10?

I'd love to know what volume of hosting customers this issue affects? ... as we are led to believe that it's occurrence is pointing to clients who have "throttled" their usage (or at least spiked at some recent time).

All the best,
Cal :)

Re: Random Account Switching

Blue host offer cloudflare that you can active if you want to. I did not have it installed or turned on. Mine is totally related to Varnish I am afraid, as that piece of software was enabled, and thy refused to remove it due to the shared hosting issue. I can say this, when I migrated to the cloud ...

Re: Random Account Switching

I wonder if this is ultimately a Cloudflare issue? Does everybody with this issue have Cloudflare? The two words which keep rearing their ugly heads are "Varnish" and "Cloudflare" ... so come on host companies, sort this out, without passing the buck onto your customers, or deviously asking them up...

Re: Random Account Switching

Does this appear to be a Bluehost only problem??? Or is anybody's PHPBB forums being affected that are not hosted on Bluehost? I am on the line with Bluehost as I type this To the best of my knowledge, HostMonster/Bluehost and JustHost are 3 culprits involved in this issue so far - and each custome...

Re: Random Account Switching

Re: Random Account Switching

So now I either have to switch hosts, or pay more money for the cloud hosting, after we just purchased 3 years in advance.... T...
