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

It only feels faster because we didn't have it for ohmy.gif a few hours!!! We missed it so much, any speed feels fast enough! 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!!

    • It amazes me how people cannot see any of the above. Are they so blinded by partisanship? Is it only objectionable if the other side does it? So, doesn't that make them bigoted when they adhere to a code of silence when their preferred candidate enacts the same policy? Yet... it's also obvious that Trump is taking baby steps, and he is indeed testing the waters. What his endgame is I have no idea. 
    • which gurbani lines you referring to ? please post.  Also I don't think anywhere any of bhagat, guru ji or bhatts baanis refer to women in any sexual way at all !  It is just example to help us understand jeev-aatma (often referred to as 'jeev-istree' in sikh literature) relationship with param-aatma (god) .  Since we have no inkling of what relationship to god feels like , those who have felt it have tried to pen it in comparison to earthly relationships we do understand ! and what more intimate relation than that of a spouse !  In Gurbani , at places, baani sometimes go along the lines of "Dear sister, tell me how you impressed your husband ? ... he doesn't like me, but likes you, tell me how you impressed ...." something along these lines ! and final closing line is of joy of how the wife finally impresses her husband and the typical shabad would close so ".. and then he came to bed and finally I enjoyed him ... " ..  I think I have read atleast one such shabad although I don't remember which exactly. but trust me, there's no sexual undercurrent in this shabad AT ALL ! it just helps us relate to our bodiless relationship with creator (something we don't understand) by comparing it to a relationship of intimacy that we do understand and often live !  Same can be said of krishna and gopis in hindu literature. Some say krishna had 16500 wives. Its not possible literally ! so again a hidden metaphor . Gopis revolving around krishna in play dance. Trust me, this often gets sexualized, but subtle metaphor is lost, namely that of souls (gopis) enjoying the spiritual bliss of krishna (god) and all of creation revolving around the creator. Rigveda and some upanishads mention the relationship of soul (jeev) and parbrahm as such :  "On a tree bearing multiple fruits, both bitter and sweet, sits two birds of a kind, eternal companions. One , of golden plume and luminous sits serenly on topmost branch, unperturbed and in bliss. On the lower branches, jumping from branch to branch, is its companion, who sometimes eat sweet fruits and sometimes bitter.  When it eats bitter fruits, it sometimes looks up and see its undisturbed , blissed companion of golden feathers. However , it soons forget its sorrows and starts eating sweet and bitter again .  Sometimes, again it eats bitter and this time flies on top branch , approaches the golden plume companion and when it goes very near, it realizes its golden plume is itself only, its inner-most self, the atma !"    the tree refers to body or world, the golden plume companion is the real self, the bird moving from here and there is jeev . the bitter and sweet fruits are dukh and sukh respectively which we bear in this world. When the bird goes on top branch (higher avastha) , it realizes its own self, and attains liberation and bliss, which gurbaani refers to as "mann tu jot saroop hai, apna mool pachaan"  Quite good example these seers made ! many such metaphors throughout in gurbani also.  The bigger question is "Can we believe ? truly?"
    • Exactly, it makes me kinda confused on how in some Gurbani lines it talks about sadhus leaving their wives but then they still keep thinking of women in their mind as a sadhu.. Can the same thing be said for gay people who try to 'leave' the marriage concept while becoming celibate & 'dharmic', but still think of guys? So does that not mean that they should get married as well.... bhul chuk maff kijye
    • Also you assert it took him decades to accept his ineligibility. . Please provide your sources. . How many decades exactly? Are you suggesting he wanted to create a parallel gurgaddi?
    • Now as I have qualified my assertion can you please qualify yours.. what evidence do you have that he didn't accept guru Angad Dev ji?
