I've decided to a) get a new host, and b) try to move the board there.

Part a) is done. The new host is Bluehost, FYI, which phpbb recommends. Head on over to

http://www.verduria.org

EDIT: IT IS UP AGAIN.


Anything there is temporary, because hopefully it'll get replaced by the contents of this board. But you can go there and sign up and post. It will ask you for a code, which is 676.

I will allow posting here for a short time, to make sure everything is up and running. At some point I'll need to take this board down to back up the database. after that, I'll either successfully port it over to Bluehost, or I'll fail miserably. We'll see!

Obligatory question: in theory, none of the posts here will be lost, right?

Hmm...now it looks like both boards have errors. :| The new one gave me the same kind of error as on this board when I clicked on the link at the top of this thread, then threw a SQL error every time I tried to log in.

Yep, new board got completely upfucked when I attempted to copy the data from the old board.

They are supposed to be restoring it now. I will have to restore the data from the last few days.

More info later when I see where we are.

When I go to the new page, it's completely blank for me. What's up?

To be fair, at least I'm not getting any server errors from this board any more. Must be the curse has moved to the new board.

Perhaps North Korea can use the "new" board as target practice.

Perhaps a start-from-scratch approach is the best option.

Or, not.

Their restores didn't work. I am now trying to install phpbb by myself. Seems ftp limit has been exceeded for today.

THE NEW BOARD IS UP AGAIN.

Well, crossing my fingers. I have been able to create forums, create posts, create a test user.

Same secret code as above, but sorry, posts from the last week are lost. More info over there.

I assume we still should assume that anything we do on the new board will be lost when everything is copied over from this board.

My understanding is that nothing is going to be automatically copied over from this board because Zomp tried it and long story short, it didn't work. Instead, this forum will be made read-only in a few days, and it will only be possible to make posts and such in the new forum.

The last thing I've seen on the subject is this post on the new board where zomp says that is ONE of the possible solutions he's researching.

Yes, but earlier, here, he wrote, "The old board is still there, but I will make it read-only at some point." Idk why I thought he'd do it within a few days, though.

In general, ignore me. :P

Any way to do something other than the code? It's going to be a nightmare for others as this board becomes harder to access, or it will simply unintuitive to look here. Like... I dunno put a moderately complex math problem on the page.

We all have to make new ones different from the first new board because it's a second new board...I don't think that sentence made any sense, but...okay whatever. :P

Is it possible to turn off pruning here in the meantime? Not much use to permalink the old scratchpad thread to the new board if you have to bump it here once a month.

Is the plan at this point to basically let this board fossilize out, and for everyone to just re-register and start posting on the new board?

That's kind of what I've been assuming.
