Update - Site maintenance During 2018

Post by AMG » Tue 13 Mar, 2018 11:42 pm

Dear Ozbenzers,

This is a notification regarding our existing host, and services that will be affected over the coming weeks.

After 11 years of a love-hate (love to hate) customer relationship, We have finally secured a new host for the next 2 years.

Beginning the 3rd week of March, some site migration testing will take place, and there may be a period where ozbenz becomes inaccessible for BRIEF periods (not like the recent unscheduled services outages we have suffered due to the current host).

We will attempt to provide adequate lead-time and notifications, but cannot guarantee that exact timeframes will be adhered to, especially if we encounter an issue.

Nonetheless. we are comitted now to our site migration, and will have a few tweaks which will make the site more robust and secure.

Once the migration is completed, All users will need to delete their ozbenz site cookie(s) and empty the web browser cache before logging in to the new platform.

Meanwhile, sit back, relax and enjoy a :coffee2:

This thread will be updated with the schedule for outages (likely to be late evening AEDST) when we have our migration plan and checklists approved.

cheers,
Joe

Dear All,

We are currently experiencing an issue with our SSL login and session ID, and consequently, some people may have issues with their login.

I must confess it's bloody annoying. So to ensure it is remedied, please follow the below procedure.

If you have experienced this problem:

PLEASE CLEAR YOUR BROWSER CACHE,

PLEASE CLEAR YOUR OZBENZ COOKIE(S) and

CLOSE YOUR BROWSER - that is QUIT and relaunch it.

type https://ozbenz.net in a new window and follow the usual login routine.

If you still receive a "number of login attempts is exceeded" please ensure you answer the captcha and click on the "remember me" and you should be able to login.

If you do not clear the cookies and cache and close the browser, you will continue to experience this issue until you complete the procedure correctly.

Do not click on the OZBENZ link next to the little home icon, it will log you out as it does not carry the session ID> click on the main index text and it will bring you to the main index.

Yes, I realize it is damn annoying, but there is nothing I can do about it at this point in time. We have completed all the server side cache flushing etc and we are still having issues with the smilies not displaying correctly.

Support tickets are raised with the host and the software developers
stay tuned.

Dear Users,

At this stage, the host has not been able to resolve the issue with the demand for the page reload and captcha at every single login.

It's pretty darn annoying and I hope to have it resolved within the next 24 hrs

It is understood that the maximum login attempts issue has been rectified.

If you're still experiencing the issue please follow the previous instruction to clear the ozbenz cookies and all related website data, clear the browser cache, quit the browser and relaunch it, then open a new ozbenz login https://ozbenz.net

enter your username and password, click 'remember me' and submit.

this should fix the issue.

the host ssl proxy has required some changes, and it appears at this point in time, they seem to have fixed the issue we have with login.
