Forum SW upgrade imminent

Postby kaitou » December 30th, 2008, 10:06 am

I'm planning on doing an upgrade to our forum software sometime this (Tuesday) afternoon (EST) for the duration of which, the boards will be down. I don't expect the process to take more than an hour.

I will be monitoring the #es irc channel I've set up on irc.krl.com if you have any problems.

Turns out there are, uh, "issues" with doing the upgrade. We will be postponing it for the time being.

Sorry for the interruption.

Looks like some of the "issues" are persistent. The "who is online" counter seems hosed; I am supposedly not here. A residue of the upgrade?

We are postponing the upgrade. Even doing a minor upgrade causes problems. Not sure if this is due to a basic bug in phpBB or a mod that was applied (inspection of which reveals nothing destabilizing).
