    Another forum I frequent a lot was down at the weekend to move to new servers.

    Ever since then I can't get on despite it being up and running now for 2 days!

    I phoned my dad to see if he could get on and he could.

    I've tried using a different browser, clearing all old files via disk clean up, the registry's been cleaned twice. I've removed all bookmarks of the site and removed it from my favourites. I've rebooted my modem and computer several times.

    The web address is myprotein.co.uk - The Leading Online Manufacturer & Supplier of Sports and Nutritional Supplements

    The forum link is in the top right corner.

    I can browse the main site but can't get in to the forum.

    I've googled possible answers but still can't find a reason.

    Can anyone help???

    Screenshot or details of the error you get when you try go on it would be of good use :thumbsup:

    Usually mods will close problems for other forums telling you to email them, just a headsup.

    Something to try..

    Close all browsers
    Click start,
    XP - Click Run, type CMD and enter
    Vista - Type CMD and press enter (in the search programs box)
    In the black dos screen type "ipconfig /flushdns" without quotes, and press enter.
    Try the site again.

    If they have recently changed servers then it's possible that the DNS propagation hasn't fully completed yet which would mean it wouldn't be accessible from all ISPs yet. You might just need to wait a little longer.

    When i go to the forum I get a vbulettin message that says the forum will be moving to a new server and will be down for 1-2 hrs.

    Its been like that since sunday evening.

    I have e-mailed one of the mods and she couldn't help and advised e-mailing the sales team to see if they can help.

    I'll give that a go now, cheers

    As said above, you're looking at the old server content. So either the DNS on your PC isn't updated, or it's your ISP.

    So if the flushdns command doesn't help, try again tomorrow. DNS propagation could take up to 72 hours, possibly more.
