Re: Forum will be down for maintenance 5/22/18

I want to publicly thank the folks at https://www.virtbiz.com/ for their help and support. The problem was not of their making, yet they provided support that I suspect was beyond that normally provided on a dedicated server. These folks have been great since the first day we moved the Forum here a three or so years ago.

I also appreciate the volunteer support staff at phpBB.com. The database fix was very easy to do, but finding the problem was almost impossible. No, for me it was impossible!

Re: Forum will be down for maintenance 5/22/18

Well, that took a bit longer than I expected. There was a database problem that took a while to fix. For a while, I was worried I'd have to restore the old database and files. That would have put me back to square one. Sorry for the long downtown folks.

I have more work to do with some extensions, the logo, etc., so please respond to this thread if you experience any problems. Many of the extensions we had with the old software don't work with this upgrade. I 'll be looking for others.

Re: Forum will be down for maintenance 5/22/18

Update: The Forum will go down tomorrow afternoon. I'm guessing it will take about 3 to 4 hours.

Forum will be down for maintenance 5/22/18

I plan to take the Forum down tonight around 5:00PM to install a software update/upgrade. This is a major upgrade, so it will take a while and it may create bugs. Note I said I "plan" to do it today, but I have to get several things done before I can start that project.

Chas.
