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.
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 We attempted to upgrade outdated PHP versions, including the following on your DreamHost account: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!
