Dude, where's my posts?

Post#1 » December 1st, 2016, 4:09 pm

Short story: Vissy dun' goofed.

Long story: PHPbb updated from the 2.12 version we used to run to 3.0 while we were taking a break. I didn't update immediately when this changeover hit because we weren't using the boards. I did make a backup of our db and posts and put it aside for safekeeping. By the time I got back around to dinking with this thing, it's up to 3.1something and you can't update from the older versions without some black magic. The new version we're running now cannot read our old backup, so we are stuck starting over.

I am really sorry, I hope folks had their stories and whatnot backed up. I know many of you use the old Faeblight forums for that. It shouldn't happen again, I have fixed the issue I was having and phpbb has REALLY upped their game database-wise.
