  • Although you diagnosed your own problem, your journal entry title may attract some folks looking for this answer regarding's impact from Perl Mongers Hosting Changes [], so I'll put it here:

    Below is an email from Dave Cross about changes to the server, which
    hosts our mailing lists and web site.  I believe these changes have been
    made or are now in the process of being made.

    Here is what you need to know right now:

    The boston-pm at address is currently invalid.  I do not know whether
    this is a permanent change or just a temporary side effect of the move.
    LIST POSTS MUST BE SENT TO boston-pm at instead.

    Our lovely new Kwiki is now inaccessible.  In order to restore it, we will
    most likely need to find a new host for our website.  Suggestions welcome.

    Subject: [pm_groups] hosting changes

    For several years, the server has been hosted for free by
    Rackspace and we're very grateful to them for the help they've given us.
    Unfortunately, that free service will be ending very early next year and
    the server will be moving elsewhere.

    As part of the move we are going to have to scale down the level of
    service that we provide for Perl Monger local groups. Once the new
    server is established we will provide the following for free:

      * Web sites with static content only.
      * FTP and/or WebDAV access to maintain web sites.
      * Mailing lists.
      * DNS

    The major changes will be that no dynamic content will be allowed and no
    group leaders will have shell access to the server. We're sorry that we
    have to put this restrictions in place, but the internet is a very
    different place to what is was when we set the service up many years
    ago. If you want to host your site on a less restrictive server that you
    have more control over then we are, as always, happy to point the DNS
    records at another server.


    Apologies for any inconvenience caused.
