    Thumbs up The latest changes

    It's been a long day....

    Today's work

    • Clean out the database in prep to the upgrade
    • Optimize database
    • Obtain an SSL certificate, install, modify configuration files and test
    • Update webserver code on virtual server
    • Update database code
    • Try to update forum code and database. Fail. More updates of server code done.
    • Reindex search database. 26.5 million words processed
    • Remove forum users who haven't logged on in over a year


    So there you have it. This should be the last upgrade to the forum software unless some major security issue comes up. Things should be even faster now with the cleanup and updates. Speaking of speed, we have 40 processors on our server. Nice!!

    Well time for a shower and bed... Enjoy!

    By the way Frank, and not to sound like I'm complaining, but it seems that the New Posts function isn't updating like it used to.

    There is nothing there that makes me want it. Version 4 gave me CMS and Blog which I could care less about. I got that version more for the security and usability enhancements. Looking at what version 5 gives you, I don't see anything there we need. The biggest criticism with version 5 is that current users are being used as beta testers to find bugs. For website stability and in order to keep my headaches to a minimum, I'd rather not go there.

    What do you mean exactly? I just quickly checked it and it looks like it's working.

    I should mention that in the previous version of the software we had the CMS and Blog functionality installed. I think there was a tie in between New Posts and all that stuff. When I upgraded I decided to remove the CMS and Blog code since we weren't using it and it just cluttered up things. This "might" have an effect on what you are seeing.

    When I clicked on new posts a few minutes ago both this thread and the Trump Russia thread were there. Minutes later they were gone and I had to search them. When I went into my settings to search my subscriptions instead of the default of showing my subscribed ones which were in the new new posts, all subscription were listed and they didn't appear to be in order of the latest times they were updated.
