Intermittant Board Closures / What is Going on?

Postby Luke » Tue 21 May 2019 2:57 pm

While this forum is up for a while, why has it been going up and down the past few days? Server troubles?

Intermittant Board Closures for Maintenance

Postby Maria » Wed 22 May 2019 7:32 am

Dear Forum Members:

E Cafe and its sister board, OC.net, have been undergoing badly needed maintenance and a possible upgrade/move to improve service.

Please bear with us as these changes are being made.

Maria and Tech Support
Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me a sinner.

The phpBB system, which is being used here at E Cafe, has inherent problems, so does Simple Machines, which is being used by OC.net.

Server problems are being addressed.

Both E Cafe and OC.net may move to a new board, one that has more bells and whistles.

Stay tuned.
Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me a sinner.

I didn't know there was any access at all during this time. I gave up checking after a few days. So I didn't see this immediately.

Thanks for the explanation ! I hope that all proceeds smoothly with the [hopeful] transition to the new board. We definitely need a more advanced system that can ensure a secure and stable forum. Thanks so much, Tech people, for all the effort being applied to this end !

Oc.net will be having some on and off maintenance this weekend. I do not know if it will affect this forum.

Most likely E Cafe will continue to have some down time as the same Tech Support is working on both boards.
