Forum update planned for September 9, 2009

Posted by – September 6, 2009

The 3 PureBasic forums hosted on our server will be updated to phpBB3 on September 9, 2009. The work will start somewhen during the day. The forums will be locked/unreachable for hopefully only a short time.

As we know from past experiences with forum moves/updates, it doesn’t always work flawlessly. If there is a longer unexpected downtime we will post any information here.

Update:

Everything is working as planned, but it does take longer than expected. The database conversions are quite slow, and we have to rebuild the search index for all forums too which takes even longer. Because these tasks are putting a heavy load on the server we are keeping all forums locked until this is complete. Everything should be back up and running by tomorrow. Thank you for your patience.
