Urgent Help Needed.

Post by jlaney »

All of a sudden the forum for my program will not allow anyone to log in. I can view the forum but when I go to log in it brings up a screen stating Page Can Not Be Displayed..Can not find server or DNS error.

But when I click the back button in my toolbar and click on the Forum Index it logs me in.. This is very weird..

All help is appreciated.

Go to http://www.dnsstuff.com and type your domain name into the "DNS Timing" box. i.e. phpbb.com.

If you get an error like this (Reports no A records), then it's a problem on your hosts side.


If that's not the problem,


Start > Run > cmd.exe

A black box will come up. type in nslookup yourdomainhere.com


If you get an error there, it's a problem on your side.

you have cookie secure set to "yes" in your admin panel.

go to the admin panel and change it to no.


try logging in to the admin panel, everytime you get an error, change the https in the address bar to http ( just remove the s )

then try again, keep going until you get to the admin panel, then change it and submit the changes.
