*** PLEASE READ **** IMPORTANT!!!

Postby Derek » Sun May 24, 2020 10:42 am

I have some bad news, I think. It looks like my web hosting provider is pulling the plug on our version of PHP (5.6). They are going to force an upgrade on this site to version PHP 7.2, which this boards software (phpBB 3.0.2) will not support. As a snippet of their email below states, as of May 27th, we'll start seeing the errors like you saw last time.

I'm TRYING to find if they have another server that they will not do this too, and there is the option of moving to a dedicated server, but that is not financially feasible per month.

It was suggested by Matt Congrove that we move to proboards.net...it's free and has a little more functionality. I set up a board to give you an idea of how similar it looks and messed with the themes.

This board would continue to run, with a ton of errors for anyone that wanted a trip down memory lane (like I did with Donovan's posts) at this DNS address until they don't renew it, then you'll need the IP. But I will not take it down completely.

Check it out.....https://cfpmessageboard.boards.net/

I hope we can continue with our little community over there....but I will continue to work with Dreamhost to determine our options.


Hi DreamHoster!

This is a followup to our previous email "PHP Upgrade Aborted" from a few weeks ago. We attempted to upgrade outdated PHP versions, including the following on your DreamHost account:


cfpmessageboard.com - PHPv: php56.cgi - isle-of-wight

Because things didn't look quite right to us after the upgrade, we've rolled things back to the previous version. This email is a reminder that on May 27, 2020, we will be performing a final upgrade of PHP versions on your webserver. At that time, the older PHP versions will be completely removed, so there will no longer be an option to roll back even if your site is still not responding correctly!

Thanks Derek...... do we simply sign in to the new site with our current user name and password or do we have to establish a new username name and password to gain access.



I signed-up........ no problem, but that Access Code is a doozie!!!!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

There’s another 4 letter word that most of us “refer” to you as when we look at your game selections for the Weekly Picks and determine around 15 or 16 of the games have a spread of minus 3 or less....... :lol: :lol: :lol:

The forced upgrade is now supposed to happen June 24th. I tell ya, my hosting company....I don't know how they stay in business.

I actually had the board upgraded last night and then somehow....the entire directory that the website is stored in got deleted, and I have no idea how it happened. I was able to get everything restored and get the site back up.

We'll reattempt the upgrade in a few weeks. It's much easier than I thought to do.
