    Why RWO was down for six days

    Hi guys

    Sincerest apologies for the downtime since Wednesday night. Here is a simple outline of what happened.

    On Wednesday night, I started the process of updating to the latest release of the forum platform. With forums, it's not as simple as double clicking on an install file unfortunately. In this case, it all went normally but when I ran the install command, it failed because of a separate compatibility issue between a script my server uses and a script V-bulletin's new version uses.

    Efforts to fix that on Thursday failed. I them created a larger when reverting back to the previous V-bulletin version on Friday night. Worked out the cause over the weekend and got it fixed this afternoon.

    So, the rule for me is, if there's any issue that prevents an upgrade, I'll immediately restore the previous version, get RWO back online, then work on fixing the issue before trying again.

    Thanks for your patience everyone

    Though I was thinking, that the staff went to Saudi Arabia, to build that Orb of World Domination.

    Thanks Danzar. Hardly ever post but missed the site. Seemed longer than a few days! Also thanks for your decisive action a week or so ago re posts about Allir.

    I'm overseas for work so I missed it far more than usual. Stuck in hotel room! Anyway, glad it's back and that you got it sorted.
    Today's a draft of your epitaph
