Default Why was the site down?

Our ISP decided to do a server migration. After the migration CDZ was down, but I was on holiday and only noticed when I returned.

All is fixed now!!

There were as many server migrations than new threads in the last two weeks!

It's the ISP, he wants to check what happens if someone posts on this site.

After carefully avoiding VB updates for years it seems we´ve hit a wall.

Our VB version only supports old PHP while our ISP likes support slightly newer versions. ISP has put us back on old PHP without any hassle (Thank you WNED!) but I fear we've reached the point were an upgrade is necessary.

Although traffic at CDZ is low these days I still plan on upgrading. Dunno when I'll get around to it though, going from 3.x.x to 4.x or 5.x apparently takes some trial and error if you wanna keep your old data.

Will keep you posted.

Of course traffic is slow, you are never here!



I think upgrading is a good idea, some spambots have penetrated our defenses.

Just wanted to say, most upgrades involve security, so it might be a smart move anyway.

Propain forgets his password every three weeks, so his account is secure anyway
