Board upgraded

Post by BOFH » Thu Jan 10, 2008 23:58

Hi all,

As you might have noticed, the board has been unavailable for the last few hours. This is due to an upgrade of phpbb that I had to do, as the old version did not support PHP5. I simply had to install PHP5 in order to close down some security flaws on the system.

The old styles are no longer available, as they haven't been ported to phpbb3 yet, so you'll all have to live with the stuck styles. :)

For once, I've actually read (and followed) the upgrade procedure as described by the phpbb team, so no data should have been lost or altered in any way. If you experience issues, please post them here so I can look into it.

At time of writing (23:00 CET) the search is not working as the indexes have to be rebuilt. The job has been started, but it may take a few hours to complete.

Thanks for your patience.

- Mark
