The hosting server will receive software updates this Friday: 04-22-11.

MySQL database server from version 4.1 to 5.0 and will also include upgrades of PHP4.4, PHP5.2 and Apache to their latest stable versions.

I don't have exact times so it could be any time during the day.

Hopefully, these updates don't break everything. :hehe

That's my job and, yes, I will do that. I back it up at least twice a week and sometimes more.

The updates are on the server side. There are enhancements, as well as bug & security fixes to the packages I mentioned in the first thread.

I can only hope there are no changes that affect the operation of Gimp Chat but I won't know until all the updates are in place. It's possible there's some outdated/depreciated phpBB code which will need to be updated.

There is also the possibility of other domains on the server having issues with the new updates that could affect server performance, which in turn could affect Gimp Chat.

Hopefully the upgrade will be painless.

Does this Thread Show New Posts for anyone? It moves to the top of the active topic list, but is lacking that Little Square that takes you to the First Post you haven't read.

I'm seeing the "last unread post" square, Willy. Might need to clear your browser cache.

Just a reminder so that everyone knows when the site is taken down what is happening.
