Neocolours forum back online 13 March

Post by Miguel » 13 Mar 2016 05:28 pm

Hi all,

Sorry about the week (and a bit, cough) downtime here. The forum was taken down due to a slight issue where a phpbb vulnerability was being exploited to relay spam from Latvia out from the board, so our web host pulled the plug and let us know what was going on pretty quickly. Due to me being away for work all week and Jazzy being snowed under too, it's taken us this long to get the board back online.

There will be one or two teething problems as we've had to apply a major version upgrade to phpbb which lost a lot of settings and customisation - bear with us on that, we'll get it looking back to normal soon!

I'll update this thread as we get the customisations back online. If there's anything not working that should be, let us know here and we'll focus efforts there first.

Regards,
- Miguel.

Yay! Thanks for trying to keep up with it. I just checked back in this morning right before you got it up again, saw that it was giving a dreaded error page, refreshed a little while later and up it came! Hopefully the settings will be easy enough to remedy. It's a little different looking, but that's OK with me.
