  • Posts out of order with wrong timestamp

    The issue:
    A new thread is created, someone replies to it and the reply appears before the original post. This also happens in the middle of thread where post made after another post are timestamped before and appear before in the timeline of the thread. This does not happen often but is enough to drive members insane.

    I searched and found multiple threads with the same problem and all answers pointed to it being a server side issue, basically saying that Vbulletin was pulling the time from the hosting server and the hosting server must have an issue.

    Old thread, same problem:
    https://www.vbulletin.com/forum/show...s-out-of-order

    https://www.vbulletin.com/forum/arch.../t-382947.html
    https://www.vbulletin.com/forum/arch.../t-296480.html

    So, I called my host, Network Solutions, and they basically refuse to help at all saying the issue could not possibly be on their end because I am on a shared host. They then tried to sell me a $600 private host telling me that would fix the problem. I talked to several different reps and none offered the least bit of help without paying them and arm and a leg.


    Where do I go from here? I hate to cancel my hosting and move my whole site to a new server over this. Are there any other possible solutions I can try on my end before moving to a new host? Can anyone give me anything very clear I could possibly present to NS to make them understand the issue is on their end?

    We had an issue 2.5 years ago along the same lines, basically the server time was set wrong for a day, then got fixed.
    It was a PITA.

    Check the server time settings via a command line if you can.

      Eek. I've got some basic knowledge but no idea how to check server time settings via command line. I could probably do it but would need a little help.
