    Server migration is complete

    The SCCoA server migration has been completed. At this time, we have only performed stage one of our migration, which was moving to a new server.

    To shake out any bugs or other issues, we're going to hold off on the next piece of our work, which was the vBulletin upgrade to version 4. This is when you'll see things "change" on the site in terms of look and feel.

    For now, if there are ANY issues that arise, please reply here. If you can't access the site for some reason, email scguys@sccoa.com.

    The only KNOWN issue at this time is that you could be redirected back to the old site, where you will get the message that the forums are closed and we are working on them. This is "OK" for now - it should shake out in the next few hours.

    Thanks!

    My posts from yesterday afternoon are missing as well. Any chance they can be recovered?

    There shouldn't have been any lost. The migration happened around 7:30pm or so, but its our hosting company that does it. Who knows how they do things.

    Any guesses on where the posts were so I can go look at the old site?

    Well, looks like we definitely lost threads. I have a ticket in with our provider to see what they say.

    Unfortunately, we're not going to be able to get those posts back, at least not directly into the forums. I do still have access to the old forums and I can try to get a list of all posts after X:XX PM and get screen shots. People can then re-add their posts and things if they want.

    I'm going to poke around and see if I can establish when this went down. Our provider was supposed to start the work at 8:00pm eastern, at which time I was going to close the forums. They started early, didn't tell me, and here we are. . .

    Thanks Pat. I have no problem retyping my posts if I could get a screenshot of them.

    OK, so my research is showing we lost SOME posts between 1/19 15:15 and 1/19 20:33. It appears a total of 17 posts were lost. I'm going to do what I can to get print screens or actual text and I'll post them here or something (If I can, I'll put screen shots INTO the threads in case people don't go back and re-type what they originally wrote - if they do, we can always remove the screen shots later.)

    Unfortunately, nothing I can do on the attachments. Those will need to be re-attached.

    I'll be in touch. Sorry for the inconvenience all.

    Im not sure how vbulletin functions but i run a phpbb forum on my own server

    Under the admin board you can publish posts under any user in any thread

    takes a little time but i would imagine vbulletin should be similar??

    Nah, vB doesn't have that, at least natively. There's mods for it, but since this is the first time in years we had an issue like this. . .
