Title: BosaikNet Resumes Normal Operation
Post by: CVSoft on July 07, 2017, 12:20:55 pm
After an extended period of crippling downtime, the BosaikNet forums (http://www.bosaik.net/) have been restored to their state from December 2016. Unfortunately, no content has been lost. BosaikNet switched servers towards the beginning of 2017 and the database migration did NOT go smoothly; I figured out what went wrong and, in tandem with @Crawdad , fixed it. It now runs on phpBB 3.2. There may be some link rot that hasn't been fixed, but post there if there's any problems and they'll probably get ignored for a week before getting fixed.

if this is miscategorized, pls fix

How about posts that went missing? I posted some stuff yesterday (EST) and it went missing. Does this correlate?

CVSoft is talking about Bosaik forums going down. CW forums going down is a whole different thing.

There were roughly three months between the last forum backup and the server going down, and no new posts were made.
