    Exclamation Forum has been moved to a new server and domain

    Just wanted to update everyone that

    1. Forum has been moved to anew server. This server has a lot more resources and so we should inshallah get rid of the server too busy error.
    2. The domain has also been changed. The domain has been changed to forums.understanding-islam.com as uaeforum was somewhat misleading.


    If you run into any issues, let me know.

    Peace

    http: forums.understanding-islam.com...9913-War-booty

    because of the domain change , the old links no longer link back to the old discussions.
    how to fix this problem?

    I had actually setup the uiforum.uaeforum to redirect to exactly the same path in the new domain. However the old domain uiforum is no longer with us, hence that particular setup is lost. Right now we have got the second best option, which is at least all people who are trying to come to uiforum will get redirected to this forum at least even though not to the correct page.

    I will update all internal links in the database, meaning any link which is in a post to the old domain will automatically get updated to the new domain, but people coming from other sites to the old domain will not go to the correct thread.
