Down again [now fixed: botched update May/June 2019: Ascension Day Weekend]

Post by Rommeltje » Sat Jun 01, 2019 2:48 pm

Right, y'all should be used to this by now. :rolleyes:

So I tried to update the forum... :S

There'd been a notification about the update for a few weeks already, and I'd ignored it up till now. I finally decided to go ahead with it and, you guessed it: it went to shit. The forum files got corrupted, and nothing worked anymore.

I've spend most of yesterday and today getting it to work again, and long (loooooong) story short: I succeeded! Update and all. :yay:

I did expect some issues after coming back. Changes I made over the past few months being undone, attachments missing, stuff like that. But so far, everything still seems to be here. Let me know if you encounter any problems.

Also, for future instances of this happening (though I really hope it never will again): this is a great reason to join the (un)official WWGFA Discord server, as you'll get updated on what's going on, and you won't have to worry (too much) about the forum coming back.

Anyway, for now: carry on, nothing to worry about anymore.

I have to admit, I figuratively shat myself when I got a 403 Forbidden Screen, thinking I had been secretly targeted against accessing the forum!

Thank fuck all is well!
