P3D Web Not Working?

Recommended Posts

Has anybody else experienced not being able to access the P3D website? I've tried now for a day and still can't access it. Just says it can't be displayed. Tried Ie11 and Chrome, no difference. I need to re-download 2.4 and can't get into my account. If anybody has any info or can confirm that it's happening on their end, please let me know. Thanks.

I can get on the site and into my account without any problems, but when I go to Purchased Downloads I get this:

 

Warning: require_once(HTTP/Request.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/prepar22/public_html/wp-content/plugins/exec-php/includes/runtime.php(42) : eval()'d code on line 32

Fatal error: require_once(): Failed opening required 'HTTP/Request.php' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in/home/prepar22/public_html/wp-content/plugins/exec-php/includes/runtime.php(42) : eval()'d code on line 32

 

Seems like something ain't right over there...?

They were supposed to be down for maintenance for several hours yesterday (estimated to be completed by 11:30 AM EST). However, that was extended by several hours, and subsequently I haven't been able to access the site at all. Maybe they are under attack? After all, Lockheed Martin is a defence contractor....

Interesting, I still can't access site. So something is definitely happening on their end. I appreciate you guys giving me some more info on this. I guess all I can do is wait. Thanks for clarification. Cheers.

Not for me!  LM server still off-line.  Does anyone have an update?

LM were migrating to new and faster servers yesterday ... but I haven't encountered any issues today -- just checked, it's up and running.

Boy, this is strange but I just checked and no joy for me.  I've been trying to connect, off and on, since yesterday AM.  Hope for better success tomorrow.  -dave

Well, I tried using .net instead of .com and found the server. :rolleyes:  I don't know why the change.  -dave

Thanks Rob, but the full story is that I tried both Firefox and Explorer on two seperate computers and Safari on a third.  Early this morning I could only connect to prepar3d.net, later I could connect to both prepar3d.net and prepar3d.com, and now only prepar3d.com.  So I guess that must mean everything is OK, even if I don't have a clue.

Hi Dave,

 

Sounds like the DNS propagation took a while for your area/ISP connection.

 

An A-RECORD update can take upto 48 hours to distribute across the DNS servers, the more remote the location or unknown the ISP the longer that can take.  A-RECORD is an entry that points a domain name like www.prepar3d.com to an actual public IP address so when you type the prepar3d.com into your browser it contacts you local DNS to get the actual IP address of the server.  If that a-record is not yet present on your local DNS (or is old pointing to a server that is no longer running) it will return an error or not found.

 

This happens when a new server with a different IP is setup and a web site is migrated to the new server with a different IP.  LM then update the DNS they own (www.prepared.net, www.prepar3d.com, etc.) with the new server's IP address.  For the US this usually takes about 2-3 hours tops East to West coast coverage ... meaning that's how long it take to get all the DNS servers updated with the new IP address.

 

Cheers, Rob.

Thanks for that Rob, now I have a clue.

 

Much appreciated,

 

Dave
