Guessing the change-over happened as I had to log in again, and the WWW is being stripped.

Hint: If you don't want to break cookies, tell it to add the WWW back on if you can.

the change over hasn't happened yet, still waiting on the domain to transfer.

I may have tweaked a setting on the current server tho. But having a cookie set without the www makes it work on any subdomain on the domain, so technically it was wrong before and is fixed. But with phpbb2 being so old it could be a flaw that it doesn't return you to the requesting url properly.

a few hiccups are gonna happen but its all for the best.

I was referring to existing cookies and phpBB2 if it was staying on 2. 2 seems to be buggy without the WWW and it's cookies break if you remove or add it. To the point that the user has to clear their cookies to fix it.

As for a cookie without WWW being good for subdomains, that wouldn't really apply to phpBB since it uses it's own cookie. That is unless you're modifying it in some way.

I have the site just saved on my bookmarks via Mozilla Firefox web browser. I wonder if anything will change so that it will continue to load as it does now?

This weekend (If I can free up some time) there may be an outage when the domain switches over to my servers, before i start the transfer the board will be locked so that we dont lose any posts in the process, when the transition is complete you will certainly see the difference.

The domain has transferred ownership and is registered until 8/5/2013.

thanks, Josh, for stepping up on this. Much appreciated!

Also huge thanks go to Greg for keeping the site up all these years, even if it doesn't seem like it was appreciated - it definitely was.

I'm planning on doing the final switch this weekend (Possibly thursday or friday). When the process starts the board will be locked and will not be unlocked until the domain is routing to the new server (DNS propagation sometimes takes an hour up to a day). The reason the board will be locked is so that we dont lose any posts in the process since we're going to be upgrading the boards to the newest version and have to convert the database.
