ClubCalibra.net will be down for maintenance - please read

by Cliff » Sun May 22, 2016 10:42 am

Hi!

On Monday morning, ClubCalibra.net will be down for maintenance. The plan is to take backups and then upgrade the forum software we are using to the next version to allow us to bring the site up to date.

During this time the site might be inaccessible or in a state where it does not behave correctly.

Once back up I will post a new announcement.

Cheers,
Andrew

Hi Rich

The plan was to bring the site up to version 3.1 of the board software that we run - that version has a new UI and some other features.

But, nothing is so straight forward - we have some incompatible mods though (like the Garage) so I had to abandon the move to 3.1 and instead updated our 3.0 to the latest version (3.0.11-->3.0.14).

So in summary...

Backup of the board files, database, configuration
Upgraded to 3.1 (failed due to mods)
Restored the board files, database, configuration
Upgraded to 3.0.14 (success)

3.0.14 contains a roll-up of 3.0.12, 3.0.13 plus more fixes. Most importantly those three versions fix a number of known security vulnerabilities - so the site should be less hackable...

If you're interested the following links list the changes (though it's in techno jargon 8) )
https://wiki.phpbb.com/Release_Highlights/3.0.12
https://wiki.phpbb.com/Release_Highlights/3.0.13
https://wiki.phpbb.com/Release_Highlights/3.0.14

Next is to plan how to move the mods up and move us to 3.1 - but that is a job for another day so to speak!!
