Update on server move etc

Post by Paul » Thu Jan 07, 2010 15:53

Alright guys, so following up on the server move from yesterday. Had a few problems with the Apache/PHP config, somehow it got borked, so I nuked the server back to factory settings, and pointed the DNS for the forums back at the old server. So yes a few hours worth of posts were lost.

The DNS has now been updated back to the new server, and the site copied back across. So far no unexpected problems. If you come across any please PM me.

Other changes:
  • The board has been upgraded to the latest version. With a new 3D captcha that hopefully will keep the spam bots away a bit more.
  • Board e-mails should also now be functional for those using @portalforums.net e-mail addresses.
  • Darth Urra has been renamed.
  • You can now subscribe to RSS feeds for individual forums and topics, to help filter out junk from forums you're not interested in.
  • I'm working less now so I should be around more.
  • I'll probably add some more skins at some point, although I've decided to not bother PFing them up specifically like the default.
  • You can now play games on the forums, click the Arcade link.
  • You should listen to Gamercast.
  • For those wondering what FFS Wester get off the power switch means, it means that you're connecting to the old server still and had to wait for your DNS to update to the new IP address.
  • Maximum attachment size has been increased from 256KB to 512KB.
  • That OB_Rocks guy can change his avatar again ... gz
I've also got a poll up there ^ if you wanna vote on the performance of the forums.
