Thank you very much David. This is such an unbelievably precious resource.

I fled Him, down the nights and down the days; I fled Him, down the arches of the years; I fled Him, down the labyrinthine ways, Of my own mind; and in the mist of tears, I hid from Him, and under running laughter. Up vistaed hopes I sped; And shot, precipitated, Adown Titanic glooms of chasmèd fears, From those strong Feet that followed, followed after. But with unhurrying chase, And unperturbèd pace, Deliberate speed, majestic instancy, They beat - and a Voice beat - More instant than the Feet - ‘All things betray thee, who betrayest Me.’

If you are reading this, you probably are not having any problems reaching this site or logging-in, but if you know someone who is still having problems, please let them know that it is most likely their computer storing the old DNS IP. Have them follow these instructions:

Go to start menu
Go to run
type in: ipconfig /flushdns
enter

That will flush out the old DNS IPs that the computer stores in the cache for quicker browsing. Our website IPs all changed with the upgrade to the new server.

(there is a space between ipconfig and /flushdns)

Or have them try this link for other operating systems:

for those on ubuntu .
if you still cant acces the forum it means you might have an invalid DNS entry cached .
Open a terminal and install nscd daemon by running :
sudo aptitude install nscd.
Then flush DNS cache by running:
sudo /etc/init.d/nscd restart

The first command doesn't work. But the page opens, which may mean that the problem has solved itself.

So you are saying that Dharma Wheel is like a tardis? How very intriguing.

Well, maybe it's time the layout was changed, too? And colour, obviously. DW would look great in blue.

Can someone confirm if dharmawheel is working properly ?
Over the last few days i could only connect once or twice thinking that it works ok but afterwards i couldnt connect at all until now .
I have tried multiple solutions but nothing seem to work..different browsers,different OS,different computers flushing DNS,reloading pages,restarting....etc...
I wonder if there are some server configuration issues....

Yep, pretty much... if the colour gets changed to dark blue, then exactly like TARDIS! :jumping:

I was able to find it for the moment by using a proxy server!!??!! :rolleye: Most of the time that works, sometimes it doesn't.

If I can login directly (without proxy) I can be on a DW page, click to go to another page, and in a nanosecond it's dropped out of name space and can't be found.

Tried the trick of putting the IP in hosts file, no help.

I've notified David to let him know; he says they are checking on it.

Either there is some sort of virus on the Board that we keep passing back-and-forth that blocks the IP, or there is something seriously wrong with David's name server tables... maybe Nagarjuna has gotten in them! :jawdrop:

my solution was setting my primary dns server to googles 8.8.8.8 which seems to work.

Well, since others are having the problem and post here, I imagine there are more having the problem who cannot find it at all. Using one of my favorite services (robtex.com), this is what I find:

--------------------------------------------
Sorry, we are currently missing dns information for www.dharmawheel.net Also check dharmawheel.net.

Www.dharmawheel.net is ranked #457459 world wide as dharmawheel.net. It has 91 inlinks.

Thedhamma.com is a domain controlled by two domain name servers at thedhamma.com themselves. We are missing the IP:s of two servers: ns2.thedhamma.com and ns1.thedhamma.com.

-------------------------

There is more dealing with the mailservers, but that's not really relevant...

So, there it is. First, the name servers need to be set with the DNS for www.dharmawheel.net in addition to plain dharmawheel.net (the PPb software seems to pass www.dharmawheel.net at times in links). Also, need to check why the name server IPs are not being propagated.

I've also had some trouble reaching dhammawheel.com. Seems it has the same problem:
---------------------------------

Www.dhammawheel.com is ranked #348197 world wide as dhammawheel.com. It has 144 inlinks.

Hope this is helpful.

Some more info; hope it is helpful for those who are still experiencing problems:

How to clear DNS cache for Windows and OS X:
http://docs.cpanel.net/twiki/bin/view/A ... owserCache

I heard from my webmaster that if you are able to access the site via a proxy, then the problem has to be with your computer, lack of dns flush or something, not the Dharma Wheel site here.

Here is another site he just showed me:

for those on 12.04 Precise Pangolin try running sudo /etc/init.d/networking force-reload .
This command did the trick for me but we will have to wait and see.
