...I had to fetch all posts one by one - assign the correct member - insert the answer - assign the correct member etc. And this with all topics and answers :mrgreen: .
I got "lucky" and bought a copy of my free host database for $10 :lol:

Have a look on the way back machine to see if your old site was indexed.... https://archive.org/web/

Too bad I forgot to create a screen of my first forum.
Would it be in the Internet archive perhaps?

Edit - eeji beat me. Didn't see page three. :lol:

I don't think so. So you had to register for all forums first, even if you only wanted to enter my forum. Only who was a member for all forums could register in the desired forum.
Edit: I just tried. On the net, the titles and IDs of the deleted forums come up. Nothing more.

The phpBB software was totally reprogrammed (a light version for the users- But it was impossible to break anything on a forum.), it was impossible (incompatible). The provider still exists. The forums look almost the same. Responsive they are now, but not all and not for the smaller phones (Perhaps they also demand money for a forum to be responsive :lol: ).
