Expect minor downtime of forum as we upgrade the forum software from simplemachines.org.. hopefully it will go so smoothly you won't notice but you never know..

Good luck!

I converted one forum over, with issues and still have two more to go.  I am putting the other two off until late at night over the holidays.

Just FYI:

From the mainpage http://www.donationcoder.com
Warning: main(/home/dcoder/public_html/Settings.php) [function.main]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/dcoder/public_html/index.php on line 46

Fatal error: main() [function.require]: Failed opening required '/home/dcoder/public_html/Settings.php' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/dcoder/public_html/index.php on line 46

That's what I'm getting 12.11.2006 8:19 AM Pacific Time although the forum pages seem to be ok if I go directly...

Yesterday the forums were in different orders... not sure if that was purposeful, or indeed the result of sleep deprivation on my part.

Either way I was confuzled  ;D

upgrade is complete (had a few minor shortterm hiccups).  if you notice anything else funky, please let me know.

Edvard, yeah i messed up the homepage without realizing it when i did the upgrade, by uploading an index.php into the main website directory by mistake  :huh:

All fixed now.  thankfully after i fell asleep the folks in the irc channel noticed it and sent me an emergency fax to wake me up and fix it!  Now that's teamwork  :Thmbsup:
