Can't open wiki since 02 march

Postby fjod » Tue Mar 03, 2020 5:49 am

Hello community,
I try to open wiki and it fails with timeout (see attachment). Tried on another computer with different internet provider, same thing. Is it down for maintenance or there is some problem on my side?

No problems here, tried all languages. For a faster check it would have been helpful to paste the url in the message. That makes validation a single click.
The wiki was moved yesterday to another server, so it may be a cache problem. Clean it, try again and report back.
You need at least FreeCAD 0.19.23300 to edit my current sketches.

The server was recently moved. Upcoming wiki migration, staging server, and downtime

Old page: https://freecadweb.org/wiki/Getting_started

New page: https://wiki.freecadweb.org/Getting_started

The old page is now a redirection to the new page.

I don't have a problem accessing the service, so I have to assume it is a problem with your connection.

It seems you are in Russia? The new servers are by DigitalOcean. Maybe there are some geographic restrictions.

I confirm some problems because of my location. I tried opening with some UK proxy and page opened. This is pretty sad, I guess russian government blocked some IP range again.

bummer! I guess this is a good case for using mirrors...hmmm
I wonder if we could get sponsored to do this because of the reason of being censored ?

doesn't load. Loads fine via opera's vpn.
EDIT: ironically, Telegram works with no tweaking required.

If we can't resolve the problem quickly, I'd like to write an announcement on russian forum, and on 3dtoday.ru portal, explaining the situation.

Yes, they're on the same server--strange.
