Post Here's the story...
Here's why everything had to change:

Yesterday I had a number of messages from people saying the forum was terribly slow, then the people who host our website contacted me to say that a load of queries were going through the forum that were bringing our website (including the bits that aren't the forum) and all the other websites that are hosted on the same server to its knees. I was advised that the queries were originating on the forum and they asked me to disable it first temporarily, and then when this seemed to fix the problem, indefinitely. This is why the forum went offline over Friday night.

I was then advised that I should give the forum its own database, pretty much all our website was held on a single database. In addition I was recommended to put the forum in its own subdomain, hence the 'forum.Terrorizer.com' address. I didn't want a repeat of the problems, so today I separated the forum data and moved it to the domain. Some data has been lost and this is limited to posts from around 4 'til 11 today, which is the period over which I migrated the database.

I have also used the downtime to upgrade the software, it has gone from version 3.0.7 to 3.0.11.

I've tried to make sure this place looks and feels like the old place, please give me your problems, error reports and suggestions here.

Miranda

I thought she looked like the head of the English department at a high school, though perhaps that says more about the school I went to than her..

Don't worry, the fact that it's still here is all that matters. A lot of us still remember the Steve Power days so you're doing grand.


Cheers, ears.

First: Cheers. Your time and effort are appreciated, though we may not say it that often.

Second: This version is pretty much the same as the last one. The only immediate differences I can see are that the display is slightly smaller than it was. Also, the View Unread Posts page is slightly different (column headings are still there when there're no unread threads) but that's nothing. Apart from that, all sems to be working fine.

Thank you Miranda.

Didn't understand any of the technical stuff you wrote, but thanks for sorting things and a) doing it at a quiet time (Friday night/Sat morning) and b) sorting it.

Appreciated.

Good Job as always, Miranda. That was actually done pretty quick. I have always suspected something witchy in you!!! Thanks for using your powers for good.

All the forum titles are appearing as 'STRANGLE THEM' to me, so its back to normal!

But thanks for the effort, appreciated.

Thank you for your appreciation.

I've never done anything like this before (there's a first time for everything...) and I'm really pleased it's worked out so well and so quickly.

If there are problems with cookies etc., keep letting me know: there will always be conflict between the cookies on the board here and the old board, so I've just gone and changed all the settings there and hopefully it will work out.

One thing I've noticed so far is that despite ticking "Log me on automatically each visit" I'm not being. I assume that's a cookie issue?
