Alright- so since I did the dry run a few weeks ago (and it went flawlessly) and last night, my host has decided to mandate we can no longer use mysql4.0 and must now use 5.0... No big deal since there is no extra method to making a back up on the old server, going to the new server, and putting the back up there.... Except for some reason, I'm getting a permission error... Tech support didn't know the reason either, so they escalated my case to the Sr. techs... Except there are not many of them on the weekends apparently. So after after many hours and still no one even looking at it, I decided to go ahead and update the forum software on the old server (just so it's done) and move everything later. My plan was to move it, and do all the changes then...
So as of now I have:
* updated the version of the forum software.
*re added the hacks that we all love that you probably don't even know are hacks (spaces between categories, separating sticky posts from not, (still need to do the force signatures to bottom...)
*updated the hacks you know about and love (chatbox, check for post before post etc)
*updated the advertising hack (i don't like the position of the one between the chatbox and forums, so I'm trying to find out how to move it back above the chatbox...)
*implemented the new skin that Vraev helped me make (thanks for the new banner now make me one for the store huh? hehe)
That's all I can think of but there may be more... So, this means the forum will go back down once the permissions thing is fixed to move to the new server, that should be shorter than this outage though.
I will accept the first 3 hate replies.. all others will be banned immediately Feel free to praise away though! LOL Seriously though, let me know if you see anything that may be wrong or whatever... Like if you can see the mod forums or something
Edit/ps It was fun watching all the people that kept coming to the away page ALL DAY to see when it would be back up... Didn't any of you take my advice and go do something? LOL
