everytime i try to go to the boards home page i get a white screen saying welcome to nginx. could only get into boards by going to my viewed pages and selecting from there. so do i have a virus
What's the exact URL you're going to? What address does it resolve to?
same address comes up http://www.boards.ie with the welcome to nginx. nothing else shown on address bar
And what does it resolve to?
No issue here. Going to boards as expected.
But boards.ie doesn't use nginx, it's on LightHTTPd, so he's going to some web server, somewhere. So I suspect some kind of DNS dodginess is occurring.
net stop dnscache
Have a look to see if it still happens.
