Yes, that's what I would consider. While you have the chance, and with the help of other members, why not capture page images of the most relevant topics using the Chrome Full Screen Capture extension. Then, again with a bit of help re-publish them when you have the new board set up.KevC wrote: ↑Sun Jan 27, 2019 11:47 amI ended up buying a domain name very similar to the one we had, installing a new board with the same forum layout and then posting an announcement explaining the situation and asking everyone to register on the new site. It's about all you can do. If people are willing to help out copying over topic content, that's great, but do it while you still have the chance. When the hosting runs out, it'll just vanish.
Thanks for this I have a need for it for other purposes. I was going to suggest something similar. Many years back I was getting warning about CPU usage from my shared host at the time. I had literally days to move to new VPS on another host. To give myself some breathing space I edited the templates so it was just serving viewtopic and viewforum with all the login and other links removed. This was on local machine, ran spider on it to generate thousands of static files. Deleted the phpBB install and uploaded them to host. That allowed me to keep it live while I navigate d the new world of my shiny new VPS. Best thing that ever happened to me actually if I were honest.
