XCSki Forum Update / Outage / Issues - 2019

Post by rmattson » Thu May 16, 2019 8:11 pm

Latest forum software update tonight. If anyone has issues or notices anything goofy please give me a shout. I see that we lost some formatting and links. I'll patch up the header, probably adjust the width of the page, and add the unread link back to the top of the page tomorrow or this weekend.

As usual I'm sure one or two spam accounts slip through my grasp when I'm approving accounts. I forum spam search every registered email address and sometimes they can be very sneaky or hard to discern. I will keep my eye out for spam posts and please feel free to send me a PM or email if you spot something before I do.

I appreciate the assistance.

Thank you gentlemen! I've been largely scarce here. I try to check in daily to review registrations and unread posts to see if there are any issues.

The host updated the server from PHP5 to PHP7. As a result I had to update the config. Some threads were broken even after changing the config. I talked a powerful kung fu master friend of mine into lending a hand and he sorted it out today. I believe everything is good to go. Let me know if anything is off.

Didn't know the forum could be messed up after updates needing specialists to sort it. Lucky you knew a guru that could.

I probably would have sorted it out on my own but it would have taken me much longer. Turns out the host now loads a certain module with with PHP7 that was not loading with PHP5. The forum software was loading the module through the config and as a result of the changeover the module was being loaded twice and causing a problem. In the end a simple fix but a couple hours of work.
