phpbb update

#1 Postby vbhoutex » Fri Jan 03, 2014 9:54 pm

We are updating our phpbb version tonight of sometime this weekend. I have been told there should be no downtime. If the new version causes some problems we will be able to switch back to the current version. Hopefully the upgrade will go easily and we will be running better than we were on the previous version now that we have fixed the problems that kept bringing us down.

Great news! This should finally eliminate the login spam issue, especially if you add a few of the Q&A plugins.

I readjusted the capcha recently again and that helped a lot. I have also placed bans on some large ip ranges and email groups. All of this was being done already but for some reason it finally has helped. We already have q&a in place, but may change it too once the upgrade is done.

We are now in the process of working on the updating of the phpbb and phpbb nuke. This is being done separately from the site as we will need to do testing and checking and don't want the site down or slowed while we are working on it. We are hoping to be updated by the end of May.

Since our phpbb and php nuke are so far out of date the update will be taking at least a month later than originally thought. We are now hoping to have that completed by late June or early July.

Like embedding Youtube videos, vines etc?

Spoiler tags?
