Forum software and Server Migration

Official Alex Toth website : News : Forum software and Server Migration



Time marches on. I have been using the same forum software for ten years (with some small upgrades) . Unfortunately, I needed to move to a new server. Rather than get all technical here, what this meant is that I could no longer use the old forum software.

Luckily someone was kind enough to write a migration tool to another forum code that would work on this server. It had some big issues that I needed to code around, but I was able to hack it and get everything migrated. Not a small task, but it's completed.

Everyone should be able to log in with their username and password. If not try the password recovery feature or email me. Sometimes the emails go in the spam folder so check for that if you do not get a reply in 5 min. or so. Works like a champ some email addresses. If this does not work drop me an email.

Also if you post a reply to this thread to let me know it is working that would be so greatly appreciated!!

Thanks for the understanding during the transition!


UPDATE: I just found out the software I migrated to is a spam magnet. It was up for only a few hours and full of spam. I have disabled the forum for now and will work out another solution. Thanks for the patience.
