A firewall update did not go as planned. This server is accessible now, but not the one hosting the TOA. Work progresses.

I don't know if I am the only one experiencing this problem but some threads, like the Uncommonly Dense opens ok, but I can't get the Joe G or Young Cosmos threads to open.

Edit: Looks like the problem is intermittent. I have noe idea about what the cause may be. Anyway, it doesn't matter much to me.

The server powered itself off for reasons unknown, and was claiming the boot disk had no bootable partition. This evening it decided there was a bootable partition after all. That's certainly a spur toward the host transfer I've been plotting for months now.

Good luck.

I have transferred files and database contents as they stood on the 11th. I'll try and do some testing to see if I can instantiate the DBs on the new system and get the web apps running. If so, I'll try to do a new snapshot, install, and switch over. The new snapshot might fail or the old server might fail. On the other hand, differences in underlying versions might prevent getting the old stuff running on the new server. In that case, I'll likely step this forum to PHP-BB or something similar on the new host, and see about updating the static "aebb-archive" pages for the old system, then pull those across.

All in all, I have about a half-dozen legacy Drupal installs, about the same number of WordPress installs, and this IkonBoard install to try to migrate. Fun, fun, fun.

Yes, yes, yes. But what are you going to do after breakfast?

Seriously, I think we all appreciate the effort you put in.

The internet service for the servers has problems. There's a technician coming out to fix it.

Bug tracked down and exterminated on the Verizon side of the interface. The main AtBC index page loads in close to an eyeblink now for me.

I tried using the "Take board offline function", but that doesn't seem to work. This is notice that I am working this weekend toward moving this forum to a new host this weekend. Don't get too attached to posts made after this point until further notice; I might not be dumping the database after your post.

Testing, testing...

Stuff is on the new server, and man is this ever a pain.

I now have two versions of PHP running conditionally, and spent the last couple of hours in forced reacquaintance with Perl. I don't think either of us appreciated it.

So, of course, let me know somehow if things are not working right for you. I certainly did not experience any plug and play getting to this point.

Quotes and apostrophes on old posts have decided to change to unrecognised characters.

Testing:

"straight double quotes"

“66 99 double quotes”

'straight single quotes'

‘6 9 single quotes’

That works in preview.  Presumably the problem was related to the recent transfer.

Yeah, stuff in the database apparently has a different Unicode encoding than the server now uses. I've done a little looking, but haven't found anything particularly useful on the topic. I did add the "en_US" locale to those the server has on hand; not sure why it didn't already have that.

Looking at the HTML for you pages, you don't seem to have a charset Meta statement:

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />

You might also need to do some internal conversion on the files to put things right.  Character sets are a real nuisance.

I have not used the "New Posts" link for a ling time but when I tried it today all I got was

Never happened before. But I can do without the feature; with new posts always at the top the date is all I need.

The JoeG thread something strange going on. The top is normal, but the end of the last page is all dark colors and the various buttons at the bottom are the missing image icons.

I don't know if it's just me, but this has been happening since about 1PM (all posts following about that timestamp).

I've refreshed and reloaded several times.
