Re: Some Energy Saving Tips

We definitely had a few "surprises" at first. The hot water is enough to cause a severe burn. We haven't had many people over because of the pandemic, but we're careful to warn people. I'm getting ready to move, so by the time the pandemic is done and I have people over, we'll have it set ...

Re: Some Energy Saving Tips

Our water heater in the apartment goes to about 130 or so. Not sure if there is an issue with it or if it has been set this way on purpose, but we're aware it's extra hot and compensate accordingly. It's nice, we pretty much never run out of hot water and it's a tiny heater.

Re: How to optimize mysqld process

TheCoalMan is correct. (Running out of RAM is specifically why I had suggested nginx as well. Unfortunately nginx is quite a bit harder to set up, and it might not be something that could easily be done on WHM. ) I'm not sure if we are allowed to link to specific hosts here or not, but my recommenda...

Re: How to optimize mysqld process

Ah, you're running a very high traffic forum. The problem is likely a couple different things, but luckily there are several steps we can take that can massively improve performance here. - Are you using Apache or Nginx? If you're using Apache, I'd strongly recommend switching over to Nginx/PHP-fpm....

Re: Upgrade from 3.07-PL1 to 3.3

Assuming you already have hosting, it will require a few steps, as follows. this guide has the full list of steps, make sure to read through it and follow it carefully! In short: 1. Make sure that "force URL settings" is off in your ACP before you attempt anything (as per the guide). 2. up...

Re: 3.3.0 to 3.3.1 update is bigger than expected

Seemingly small updates can change A LOT of code under the hood. Much of that has to do with how programs and applications are written. It may seem as if one file has a specific task, and another file has a different task. And while that's true to an extent, it's not as if a feature lives entirely i...

Re: 3.0.12 restore to new site

This guide has more information. Most likely "force URL settings" was on for the old board. If you're unable to access your ACP on the new one, you can change this setting on your old board (as per the guide) and do a new backup and re-import. https://www.phpbb.com/support/docs/en/3.1/kb/a...

Re: [Solved] Help! Botched upgrade from 3.0 & partial restore

I'm working on an idea for this. Just curious, how many posts/topics are on your forum? I'm assuming your using standard shared hosting (and not a VPS)?

Re: Help! Botched upgrade from 3.0 & partial restore

Sounds like phpmyadmin failed to do complete backups here. Always a very frustrating situation when it happens. It's definitely going to be a pretty involved process to restore everything. If the database is a mix of two different schemas, we will have to manually fix everything. My advice is to try...

Re: [4.0.x][DEV] [OFFICIAL] CODENAME: Chameleon

Frameworks also add bloat. In many cases it's completely worth it, but in this case, it represents a very concerning negative towards them. I wrote a CMS from scratch for a University project last year and it was pretty well-featured. It worked like a charm, and we chose to use Bootstrap as a time s...

Re: Missing Attachments

That sounds awful, I'm sorry to hear your host dropped the ball there. They should have had their own backups for these sorts of cases, it seems they did not do their due diligence. I suppose I'm overly cautious when it comes to these things, so I always do my own backups for this very reason. There...

Re: Making phpBB more social - what have you bridged with?

I've definitely wondered about this as well. Many paid softwares such as Xenforo and IPB have these features built in, but I'm personally glad phpBB sort of focuses on providing an awesome message board out of the box rather than bloating extra features in. phpBB is the gold standard for open source...

Re: Missing Attachments

Is there any pattern for the data that appears to have been missing? Are they primarily older attachments, are or they seemingly random?

Re: Missing Attachments

Ah. When is the most recent database export/backup? Edit: More detailed steps 1. First back up your current database in full, just in case! 2. Second, import your most recent database backup to a new database called “temp” 3. Go into the attachments table of your new temp database. Execute the follo...

Re: Missing Attachments

Hmm, that's odd. Do you have any recent database backups by chance? If so, you could import the attachments table and should be able to get most of them back. If you want to keep recent attachments as well (uploaded after the database backup was made), you could also go into the current attachments ...
