Right peeps. Now we have ironed out the odd bugs that remained, and the forum is functioning as expected after the server security update, I will need to add the final edits on to a fresh set of forum files, just as a matter of "housekeeping"
This is simply to make sure no old code remains, and to have a fresh install ready for any future updates to the forum software.<br />on the 7-2-13, from 12 noon, there will be roughly 2-3 hours down time, while I clean up all the files, and then clean up the database to suit ;D.<br />I know this all sound a bit tedious and unnecessary, as the forum is now running fine. But it's good practise to routinely clean and refresh files, in order to keep things running sweet and secure
It only takes one line of redundant code to be left behind, for the nasty web people to hack or attack the forum
.<br />I've put 2-3 hours as an estimate, but if all goes well, it will only be 20-30 mins lol. As some of you know, things going smoothly very rarely happens on the www. So better to give a worse case scenario time slot
