[COMPLETED] Forum Upgrade 2017-07-16 19:30 EDT

#1 Post by Turaiel »

The upgrade is complete. It took a bit longer than expected due to an unforeseen issue, which has been resolved. Thanks for your patience.

Hey all,

There will be some forum downtime today around 7:30 PM EDT to upgrade forum software. This update includes multiple security fixes and bug fixes. Some theme updates may be included, but this should not negatively impact our installed default theme.

Since this is the first minor upgrade since I've taken over operations, I can't provide a precise timeline for this upgrade. I suspect, however, that the downtime should not exceed an hour at most. I'm aiming for 15-20 minutes. I will update this thread as the upgrade occurs.

Thanks!

Upgrade log:
[19:30 EDT] Forum taken offline
[19:45 EDT] Ran into a problem with the upgrade. Investigating.
[20:17 EDT] Update is completed, checking over forum
[20:21 EDT] Forum back online

To note, it seems the swear censor bug has not yet been resolved by the phpBB developers. We have opted to err on the side of caution and leave the word censoring system enabled for everyone until the issue can be fixed. Sorry for the inconvenience.
