Forum and wiki on new server

I've now moved the forum and the help wiki to a new virtual server. The set up we've used since January was a bit temporary and the forum & wiki shared capacity with the normal web server, but now they use their own server.

There might be issues due to this move, so if you find any, just post it here.

And if you have set a "watch" on this forum and don't receive the notification email, then there is an issue. :)

Looks like you've cured the SSL/non-SSL problem, too. I'll let you know if I bump into it anywhere.

ETA: It is still possible to end up on a non-secure page. If you explicitly visit the forum with http, then pull up the wiki from one of the menus, you're still in non-SSL territory. Maybe there's something I'm missing, here, but shouldn't the servers simply do an .htaccess RewriteRule on any non-SSL URL?

Yes, a redirect was initially made by the Jetty web server to a non-SSL forum link ( https://jalbum.net/forum to http://jalbum.net/forum/ ), but I fixed that.

Yes, possibly... I'm now forcing SSL thru Java code for most pages at the main web site, and traditionally by the proxy for some URLs (for example those starting with /secure), but maybe it's time to do it for /help and /forum too. Especially now when HTTP/2 is used when using SSL.
