XF 1.3 Move servers, forum is now backdating?

Hi all,

I moved my forums from HostGator to WiredTree. After moving, the forums have been acting weird. Sometimes messages don't go through, and the forum randomly backdates. It's really annoying and causing me to loose members.

What could be the issue? I contacted WiredTree and they assured me it's not on their end and they checked everything and said all is working fine.

Define "weird."

I'm not sure what "backdating" means. But if the server clock is wrong (which would be your host's problem) then it can cause posts to be inserted out of order.

You can debug the clock by adding this code to the templates:

Admin CP -> Appearance -> Templates -> PAGE_CONTAINER

Add this code to the top:

{xen:datetime $serverTime, 'absolute'}
Now every forum page will show the date and time (in your user's time zone).
