Sikhsangat.com Server Upgrade

15 posts in this topic

Waheguru ji ka Khalsa, Waheguru ji ki fateh

We have sucessfully moved all the necessary files from our old server to the new. The forum is now live on the new server. In a day or two we will make the final changes. The important news is that the forum is now back online and ready to be used by the sangat. Also the Edit button should work fine now :TH:

If you guys do spot any errors then do drop us a pm or two.

Welcome back. Feels faster (or maybe thats a psychological thing.)

Either way, good luck with the new server. Make sure you do ardaas :@

also i think coz of the frameset thing u got going up, i have to login again when i navigate away from the page (ie. close firefox). I understand the domain name is probably propagating etc to new server ...

Yes, while we change the dns settings etc and figure out how to setup nameservers on the new server :@ @ to make things easier we have put a frameset on the old website.

Once the new server is fully setup it will be taken off. Meanwhile whatever you do dont refresh cos then you will have to relogin tongue.gif

I'm not sure if this is suppose to happen, but when you click the top banner it opens up SikhSangat in a new window.

:@ Banner leads to a different link, not sikhsangat.com, but:

208.109.98.26/~sikhsang/index.php?

I edited this like 3 times, the link keeps changing. Anyways, just right click and hit copy link location; and by just this part you can tell it's different, so whatever.

But yay! The edit button has been fixed!

Cool

I'm having problems with being constantly signed out... I use mozilla and I make new tabs whenever I open a thread, and I think that for some reason when I do that I get signed out in the tab I reply in (when I click normally and open in the same tab I can reply to posts without problem).

lol, hahahaha, had to work this time, right? gah, okay, something's just weird.

Maybe it's something because of my browser, I have no clue now.

It wasnt to do with your browser, it was to do with the fact that we used a frameset to make it easier for the members to reach the new server while the sikhsangat.com wasnt fully pointing to the new server. So because of the frameset, the cookie was being overwritten. so the forum kept asking to relogin.

Everything should work fine now. From now point onward if anyone notices any erorrs please let us know.

Uhhh I can't remember exactly when this was, it was in the morning, that's all I remember, but I couldn't log in for a long time, but I think everybody had that problem, because there were no new posts. I actually couldn't do anything, I could only see the main page; all links led to the main page.

I'm not sure why, but some times when I try viewing a section on the forum, it won't load. Maybe it's my connection. Wanted to post just incase i couldn't get here again.

Fateh!

I dont know if its right, but when one clicks the banner it will launch an new browser. If it should reload the website u have to delete the red- highlited text:

<a href='http://www.sikhsangat.com/index.php?' target=_blank><!-- ipb.logo.start--><img src='style_images/logo2.jpg' alt='IPB' style='vertical-align:top' border='0' width='100%' /><!--ipb.logo.end <div id="logostrip"></div>--></a>

It should be one of the index markup files, i dont know IPB so i m sorry.

Just look up this passage and edit! Success!!

    • I haven't cried of laughter reading something on Sikh Sangat in a while. Last thing I remember was by Mehtab Singh paji
    • I'm not sure what the point of this post is? 
    • Whose authority do SWAT need? 
    •   The Power of Prayer Dr. Mark, a well-known cancer specialist, was once on his way to an important conference in another city where he was going to be granted an award in the field of medical research. He was very excited to attend the conference and was desperate to reach as soon as possible. He had worked long and hard on his research and felt his efforts deserved the award he was about to obtain. However, two hours after the plane took off, the plane made an emergency landing at the nearest airport due to some technical snag. Afraid, that he wouldn’t make it in time for the conference, Dr. Mark immediately went to the reception and found that the next flight to the destination was after ten hours. The receptionist suggested him, to rent a car and drive himself down to the conference city which was only four hours away. Having no other choice, he agreed to the idea despite his hatred for driving long distances. Dr. Mark rented a car and started his journey. However, soon after he left, the weather suddenly changed and a heavy storm began. The pouring rain made it very difficult for him to see and he missed a turn he was supposed to take. After two hours of driving, he was convinced he was lost. Driving in the heavy rain on a deserted road, feeling hungry and tired, he frantically began to look for any sign of civilization. After some time, he finally came across a small tattered house. Desperate, he got out of the car and knocked on the door. A beautiful lady opened the door. He explained the matter and asked her if he could use her telephone. However, the lady told him that she doesn’t have a phone or any electronic gadget but told the doctor to come inside and wait till the weather improved. Hungry, wet and exhausted, the doctor accepted her kind offer and walked in. The lady gave him hot tea and something to eat. The lady told him that he can join her for prayer. But, Dr. Mark smiled and said that he believed in hard work only and told her to continue with her prayers. Sitting on the table and sipping the tea, the doctor watched the woman in the dim light of candles as she prayed next to what appeared to be a small baby crib. Every time she finished a prayer, she would start another one. Feeling that the woman might be in need of help, the doctor seized the opportunity to speak as soon as she finished her prayers. The doctor asked her what exactly she wanted from the God and enquired if she thought God will ever listen to her prayers. He further asked about the small child in the crib for whom she was apparently praying. The lady gave a sad smile and said that the child in the crib is her son who is suffering from a rare type of cancer and there is only one doctor Mark who can cure him but she doesn’t have money to afford his fee and moreover Dr Mark lives in another far off town. She said that God has not answered her prayer so far, but said that God will create some way out one day, and added that she will not allow her fears to overcome her faith. Stunned and speechless, Dr Mark was in tears which were rolling down his cheeks. He whispered, God is great and recollected the sequence of events. ….there was malfunction in the plane, a thunderstorm hit, and he lost his way; and all of this happened because God did not just answer her prayer but also gave him a chance to come out of materialistic world and give some time to the poor helpless people who have nothing but rich prayers.
    •                                                              FOCUS ON PERSONAL OBJECTIVES   A youth went to the church father and said “father, I won't be going to church anymore.”
      The Fr. responded “But why?”
      The youth said “Ah! I saw a sister speaking bad of another sister; a brother that can't read well; the worship team living wrong; people looking at their phone during service;among so many other things wrong in the church.”
      The Fr. replied “OK. But before you go, do me a favor: take a full glass of water and walk three times around the church without spilling a drop on the floor. Afterwards, leave the church if you desire.”
      The youth thought : too easy!
      And he walked three times around as the Fr had asked. When he finished he told the pastor he was ready.
      And the Fr. asked “When you were walking around the church, did you see a sister speaking bad about another sister?”
      The youth replied “no.”
      “did you see anyone looking at their phone?”
      “No”
      “You know why?”
      “No”
      “You were focused on the glass, to make sure you didn't tip it and spill any water. It's the same with our life. When our mind is focused on our own objectives, we don't have time to get distracted by others` actions/karam .”
