Just popped on  one last time,Chaseracer & cavcraft both have access to latest server backups,just done them.

Just buy a server,can be done instantly.install cpanel whatever,get electric leyland to change ip address to that of your server.

takes about a day in all.

I will loan Ipb software if needed for 28 days but you will have to purchase your own by then.licence is not transferable.

Sorry for doing this but  have spent 20 solid hours non stop trying to get board back up,would have been up to date with no lossof posts but i can only put up with so much crap,so knocked it on head for my own health & sanity.

Sorry all but tried my best,obviously not good enough.

 

Just to clarify this downtime was not a server error or anything,it was taken down by me to rebuild server,took a bit longer than expected.

Was notified this was happening first post in this thread.

 

See this thread for why i have had enough

Not sure what kind of server specs are required but I've just leased a dedicated server from www.soyoustart.com (OVH) for a very reasonable rate for some lab / testing stuff

EDIT - sadly not an offer of somewhere to host, it's paid for through my company solely for business use however it's a recommendation of a vendor that might cut costs.

Yes, that's a bad thing in my opinion. I've never been a member of a free forum that hasn't had restrictions that make it unworkable for anything more than a short term test board.

Yes, everyone on the internet has the email list, apparently.  Dave helpfully put them all up there yesterday, which was thoughtful of him.

I think the problem with proboards is there is no mechanism (I don't think) to import the current forum, so you'd be starting from scratch and lose all content

 

If you went to IPB (who make the current forum software) and had it hosted in the cloud it would be an easy transition, but its costed based on number of concurrent active users, so it could be well north of £100 a month (though its probably still cheaper than a dedicated server, and the cost is fixed, transparent, all inclusive etc

 

Guess who hasn't had a lot to do at work today,

How do other free forums fund themselves ?

Presumably, Junkman was dreaming when he saw the addresses being available on the net yesterday.  Or maybe Junkman was fibbing.  Gosh, naughty Junkman.

 Other forums I've been a member of in the past have been funded by a combination of traders fees, donations from members and out of the owners pocket.  A lot of them have died on their arse now and been replaced with facebook groups.  I can see why and everything, but....meh, facebook.

RE:  addresses etc on the net.

I have checked the other thread on .info.  I am sorry if I missed a post while speed scrolling, but I could not see Dave indicating that Junkman's contention that the addresses and PMs were available on the net to anyone who wanted them was incorrect.

 

IF Dave were to say X and Junkman were to say Y,  I would probably be inclined to prefer Junkman's version (that is: Y), unless and until Dave proved X.  This is because previous stuff said by Dave causes me to doubt his credibility.  Junkman is a man whom I trust, even though he pretends to be a silly person on here.    If Junkman is wrong, and therefore I am wrong, and Dave is right, I will accept this and say sorry. 

 

IF (I say IF) the stuff on the net stuff happened, there was arguably a breach of data protection legislation.  Does Dave have a DPA registration with the ICO?  I asked him about this, but, again, I may have missed an answer while reading too fast.  

 

I don't care about the DPA.  It is a silly thing.  The ICO cares about the DPA.  How tiresome!  Some people (not me) might care about their PMs and email addresses being spaffed onto the net.  People can be funny that way.

After the recent disruption Stanky and Slatibartfast have kindly offered to take ownership of the hosting of the forum on an ongoing basis. This will require a change of DNS which could cause up to 24 hours downtime while the changes propagate.

 

We'll update you all before anything changes and appreciate that there has been a lot of disruption recently, but this has to be done as the site is currently sitting on a server which Daveb47 runs and pays for.

 

Going forward, we'll try to keep the forum stable and move from the current paid-for software to an open-source solution to reduce running costs. This will be discussed in due course once we have got to grips with the current setup.

 

On the contentious subject of donations, we plan to set up a GoFundMe page for the site where we will disclose the running costs on a monthly basis and set a funding target. We envisage this to be in the region of £100 per month. Members can donate if they so wish, and choose to have a name or handle displayed, or remain anonymous.

 

Thanks for bearing with us during the transition.

 

 

 

More as it happens! 

 

 

*Edit: We have been overwhelmed with offers of help and support from 'shiters and it's been very much appreciated, thank you.

Hi, as some of you may have seen, there are concerns that the mysql password that the board uses was made public recently. As a security precaution we are changing it. This shouldn't cause downtime but then again the sump plug should just undo easily. Will advise when this has been done. (Slartibarfast)
