    Good evening,

    For some time, it is impossible for me to access some websites, from a macOS or from a linux.
    The reasons seem diverse but I am sure there is a common problem.
    Each time the website appears for a fraction of a second, then an error message appears.

    For example, on the website sadeya.com, the message is "thank you to come back a little later, sadeya is in maintenance ...", or even the site widrax.com which shows me "PHP Fatal error: Call to Undefined method mysqli_result :: fetchAll () ".

    What brings me to believe that the problems have a common origin is that it happens to me only on streaming sites. Will not this be a problem from the firewall or DNS?
    And I don't know why, it works on some other macbooks...

    Thank you for your help !

    Both of your example sites are not loading for me, with the same messages that you see.
    There's not a lot that you can do if a site is not accessible.
    Do you think that those sites might be affected by the current world-wide problem with hackers?
    That would be a good reason that they have been taken off line.

    The problem is old, it happens before these problems with hackers.

    Yes it works with Windows, and my uncle's MacBook Pro on the latest Sierra version like me...

    Check settings for web browser or internet security.

    Tried those two sites on Windows, also a variety of other browsers on my Mac, and tried on two other Macs with a variety of other browsers.
    In all cases, there is a quick flash of a security window --- which needs a video recording to see what the text is, that flashes very quickly. Then, I am redirected to the error page.
    It's a redirect for detected security issues.
    Those two sites are not accessible.
    I expect if you try today on another computer, you also will not be successful. Those two sites appear to be, for all practical purposes, shut down.
    I did not try this on your uncle's computer, you may want to try that for yourself. :D
    Maybe they will work after the weekend...:confused:

    I have watch a movie yesterday night on this website from a Windows.
    This problem is old, some month ago, there was the same problem with epliv (the old widrax.com) with Ubuntu or Manjaro linux.
    I think it is a security problem... but why it don't work on my Mac and it works on my uncle's Mac while we have the same macOS version.

    Widrax.com has only been registered for about a month --- so, it's possible that the system has caught up with that site, and that service now may find another site to use.
    If the streaming video is commercial movies, not-quite-legitimate, etc, then that might explain why the site (and its predecessor, epliv.com) didn't last too long, and likely why searching through normal search engines doesn't find much.

    I do understand (but not everything). I get exactly the same messages, and the same result. I cannot access the site.
    There must be many reasons that sites stop working. Some are because sites are simply abandoned --- dead sites.
    Other reasons might be related to the content. A site may be forced to stop providing copyright content, such as movies, and might be forced to shut down as a result. I do know that the widrax.com site is located in California, USA - so perhaps they were just simply discovered to be operating a streaming site offering material that they had no rights to offer, or were not paying a license fee to stream videos, when a fee was required.
    I DO NOT know that these are the actual facts, but a small site, which was also reported to offer streaming primarily to France - may be the reason that the site was moved from one address to another, and then not able to continue.
    You would need personal contact with the folks who actually operated that site to find out the real information.
    Maybe they simply ran out of money, and had to suddenly shut down.
    Finally --- If it is YOUR computer, your Mac, with wrong settings, or software issues, then why do I (in another country, and using different software, along with a Windows PC) get the same security messages every time I try?
    It's not your Mac, it's the site.
    If it was free for you, then you just need to find another site (I don't know how to help you with that :rolleyes: )
    If you paid to use that streaming service, then I hope you can get your money back.

    I can open both sites now. Have you tried in different time periods?

    No access, no change for me today.
    Maybe those sites are not accessible unless you are actually in France? That's something that I don't know how to test...
    Vous vivez en France?
