Old forum is ONLINE

Postby TheAPGuy » Fri May 09, 2014 3:51 pm

Old website's database was recovered by Paul Stenning and is now running on this server. To view the old site just point your browser to http://www.autopatcher.net/forums It has an "s" on the end where this forum does not. Account creation is disabled. Those of you without an account cannot create one. Those of you with accounts can login however, be aware that I will not be watching that forum. Anything you post in there will not be noticed.

Is it possible (or even desireable) to make the "old" site read-only access? That way there's no confusion.

Would be nice to import that into this forum (maybe as a readonly subforum initially as a safety measure, then merge after it checks okay?). Most people would probably not notice it like this, and it's a pity to lose all that info.

If it's IPB v2.3, there's a big thread with conversion scripts and discussion here, but I don't know what the pitfalls might be:
