This sort of trouble will inevitably arise during and after a migration 
to a new server and/or software, whenever assumptions about the name of 
the host URL, or the services provided by it are violated. This would 
arise any time the old webpages had a hard reference to www.gromacs.org, 
since this likely to be invalid now. The general solution is to be 
patient until the transition is complete. Meantime, you can try using 
Google with a "site:oldwww.gromacs.org" constraint.
