    It seems to be mostly OK so far, but I did notice one thing:

    The "Comments and Discussion" link on the bottom of all the articles I tried returns:

    Code:
    Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Access denied for user 'phoronix_user'@'localhost' (using password: YES) in /home/phoronix/public_html/news2forums.php on line 5

      Problem

      There is a very big problem with the new server. On any multi-page article, attempting to view any page except the first displays the first page instead.

        Fixed now I think... Very interesting bug. I have no idea how it happened, or rather how the old site even managed to work with the PHXCMS content management system I wrote. When connecting to the new server, I couldn't even find the line of PHP that reads the $_GET variable used for reading the page number from the URL... so that variable was never defined on the new server. It somehow magically went missing in the migration I guess.

            BTW, is anyone getting the vBulletin email notifications? I'm not so I think that might be down...

              Did you have magic globals on with the old server? It's off by default on all newer distros (and removed entirely in newer versions of PHP), which would explain why a newer server would make it suddenly stop working.

                Oh, also -- new server is definitely way faster.

                I'm assuming most users are seeing the new server by now and this isn't just because the new server has unusually low traffic.

                  No, I've had magic globals off for a couple years now. Ah well, it's working now, I just hope all other pages are working fine without bugs... Anyone's free to click away!

                    It seems to load pages a little bit faster. The real test will come on the next big traffic news though.
