Hello.

I'm not sure where to begin really. I moved my website from Godaddy to a new host today.. everything worked perfectly fine, no errors or anything.

Suddenly today my website just "crashed" as if someone pulled out all CSS from the website and in the hosts error log this happens:

[Sat Nov 29 16:55:58 2014] [error] [client 141.101.79.6] File does not exist: /home/geekmore/public_html/cdn-cgi, referer: http://geekmore.org/i

And so it continues on and on..

I have no idea to begin really.
I have tried chmodding the theme map inside the cache folder, but to no success.

Anyone have any idea where to begin?
The website in question is at http://www.geekmore.org

Thanks

you have to contact web host and ask to fix it.
And see required permissions for the folders & files

Thanks for the reply!
I'll do that and see what they say.

Just curious, what exactly is causing this? (if there's any "easy" explanation) So I might actually learn something Toungue

Thanks again. Really enjoying MyBB so far!

looks like your site is added to cloudflare (through web host ?) and there is some problem with it

Yes indeed i'm using cloudflare.
I tried freezing cloudflare and it seems to be something else. (I can easily rule out that its some sort of bot or ddos, since one of the ips below is mine Toungue)
Gonna try to do the chmod and see if it does anything.

after ensuring that permissions for cache folder & its sub-folders are fine,
you can follow this suggestion to regenerate cached versions of the style sheets

Tried to regenerate it and also save that global.css, sadly it didn't work.
Host said their maximum permissions was 755 & 644.
:/

edit: I just realised I might've done the regeneration wrong, gonna try it again and see

Ok. So to regenerate you go into cache and delete the files inside it and then press rebuild and reload in the "tools & maintenance" part of the CP?

Yay, that worked. Thank you very much. Hope y'all have a wonderful weekend Smile
