Downtime & Board Backup Restoration
« on: May 11, 2009, 03:06:29 am »
Due to a board upgrade to SMF 2.0 gone bad, we had to restore the site from backups. Sadly, this means that all posts, password changes, PMs, comments, registrations, etc... made on on Sunday, May 10th were lost. We apologize for any inconvience this may cause you.

A couple of the forum mods also had to be reinstalled, if anyone notices anything weird with the site, please send a PM to Netham45 or DJ_Omnimaga on either the forums, or IRC, and we'll look into it.

Well I got a more recent backup but it's a huge mess so while all posts from yesterday will be restored (as well as PMs), this might take a day or two until I manage to do so. A backup was made right before the upgrade, but like with TIMGUL, 1and1 does shit database backups.

I wanted to upgrade to SMF 2.0 RC1 but many problems occured with the forum skin settings, lot of images missing (even if they are present on the server at the right URL) and even if we changed settings/CSS nothing would change in the forum layout, so I decided to revert back to SMF 1.18 for now. Also way too many mods stopped working after the upgrade. Only the portal, the articles/rules pages and the downloads system did work fine

I hope they will finish that 1.18 to 2.0 skin converter soon and that mods will be updated

EDIT: Nevermind about backing up yesterday posts, it would be way too much work to do so, now that there were posts made afterward (causing ID conflicts)

In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF
