ccgi - new problems, ftp and http disagree

Hi,
I had problems with the cgi server, so I backed up my stuff, disabled it, re-enabled it, and reloaded my files...
However, something's not right. I've got a simple index.html, but when I browse to http://ccgi.tomandlu.plus.com I see a completely different index. The correct one should say "Test Index - test index.html", but what I actually get is "It works!", and I can't even see where that file is coming from...
I seem to be hitting a completely different (wrong) directory via html...
Also, a minor oddity - for a moment I was able to log in via telnet, but now that's being refused - I've no idea whether telnet access is still supported or not, so I've no idea whether I was meant to be able to connect or not... all in all, a frustrating 48 hours...
Anyone got any ideas as to what's happening?

That's the page for the default vhost. It suggests that tomandlu is not currently mapped on ccgi - presumably a hangover from disabling your account. It should get re-added after a bit.
You shouldn't be able to get in by telnet. I hope that was a mirage or PN have a problem.

Re: ccgi - new problems, ftp and http disagree

Well, I've logged a support call, and something's happening, although still a work in progress... the telnet was bizarre (btw we did used to have telnet access a few years ago, didn't we?). There it was for a glorious five minutes - I was even able to cd .. out of my home directory and could see all the other home directories and their aliases...
Ooo! It's back...

Re: ccgi - new problems, ftp and http disagree

I'm wondering if there are some IP ranges allowed in to allow PN staff access to the server.
Tom: are you on a fixed or variable IP? Could you post your current IP (with the last part masked) please

Re: ccgi - new problems, ftp and http disagree

Hi,
I'm on a fixed IP - 84.92.***.**
I wonder if it wasn't just a side-effect of work PN were doing on my account (given I was having problems). It's not connecting now ("Connection refused by host").
All is now well, btw...

Re: ccgi - new problems, ftp and http disagree

Hi all, thanks for letting us know about this - our network engineers are about to roll a fix out to sort this. Should be done within the next hour or so.
