I don't get it. Randomly, I can't connect to some sites that I used all of yesterday with no problem. They aren't down, I checked downforeveryoneorjustme.com and I also connected to my VPS and logged into them from there.

The two in question are both minecraft related (fun game, don't hate.) One is the homepage for the server that I run on my VPS, and the other is http://minecraft.net/servers.jsp

Just the servers.jsp, every other part of the site works fine.

I cleared my DNS cache twice, ran CCleaner and cleared every cache that was available, checked my hosts file, everything.

Anyone got any insight as to why this might happen?

Edit: And no, the site is not hosted on that VPS. It's in a different datacenter, so it's not a problem connecting to the VPS.
Edit2: Here's a speccy if for some reason you need it: http://speccy.piriform.com/results/xnqTDzIwHdz8EIu6fUSCR9R

Example:

On my home computer:

Then with RDC on my VPS:

Just for testing purposes, what happens with other browsers (Firefox, Opera, etc)?

I just tried minecraft.net and it's not loading. I'm guessing the sites are simply having some problems.

Just did and here's what I get:


better way to connect
Minecraft.net's login server has been very messed up, so I've now implemented World of Minecraft's MC Direct Connect protocol on our server!

Here's a little tutorial:

1. Download the WoM client to the right --->

2. Extract it

3. Run it and download the file when it prompts you

4. Run it again

5. When it shows the login screen, DON'T LOGIN. Go to http://abattlewalrus.com/mppass.php and copy the code it gives you into the box under the login fields:

6. Replace USERNAME with your username

7. Hit go

8. ????

9. Profit.

Well I finally got this site up and running, complete with this blog and the forums at http://abattlewalrus.com/forums

Need help getting the forums to the state of the old ones, i.e. with categories and actual content.

Server status: Online

For some reason it wants to restart every morning and not load the server, which I have to do manually. I'm working on resolving that, but it might be out of our hands.

This blog will be a replacement for the updates section of the forums.

Forum Issues
I'm having troubles posting on the forums, such as I can't see the New Topic or Reply buttons at all.

Anyone else?

Edit: Nevermind, everything should be working for all users now.
