View Full Version : Forum down for 2 days

Hey all,

The forum was down for a couple of days if you noticed. I was doing some maintenance and deleted the little used Avea Media Gallery which caused a fatal error. Anyway after checking permissions, restoring a backup database, etc. which didn't work, today I decided to just over-right the entire site with a daily backup which to my surprise only took about 5 minutes and restored everything back to normal.

So, over the next few weeks I'll be doing some other maintenance things which might cause some hiccups like this one. The goal is to get rid of unused mods, then upgrade the entire forum to the latest version which I have on another site and it's working great, then reinstall some of our favorite mods back.

One of the things I've done is go through our membership list and discovered even though they didn't spam our forum or anyone, that we had some 30 spammers registered. They're banned now. The updated forum version will prevent them from ever registering.
