When i toke over the forum only the domain was forwarded to me NOT THE ROOT FILES. After the transfer toke place i regularly notified him to forward me the root files data in an event like what happen last weeks i could restore the forum easily. That never happen until the unexpected happen few weeks ago. Before i toke over Sunray was the one who was managing the forum, don't know what happen to him hope he is fine.
My first action i contacted site author true the email source i had please requesting him to restore the board. Still waiting for an replay! Luckily i was saving the data true the ACP, full download saved data. An forum user Pufito ( Felix ) reach him notified him about this matter his response was to restore the board in an new host with the data i had saved after the transfer this shouldn't be an problem.
Now here is when the whole drama started.
Host company Godaddy;
Code: Select all
Ones an domain is set for an host account in there system you can't create another one
Import the date;
This action fail we crashed add least 4 forums without any result
After the data was analyze by an programmer( Felix) brother) who assist me since the beginning) and an local Phpbb translator appear that the board backup function was not saving all the files The board was structure was based on 3.0.3 version updated last to 3.0.6 V ( four years ago ) I was await for the root files to update it to the latest 3.0.11.
To restore we miss an lots of files; users-topics and other useful folders
If you look at phpbb_user .......53 those are only the search bots
After this hard sleepless weeks because i feel my self responsible for the whole issue as my whole effort seems to vanish. I have done everything i could what was in my capacity to get the board up back. For now the only thing i could was to creating an new one, latest version, running on linox account waiting until the ex author would feel the interested for getting use the root files so we have the board back .
For know board will be empty i will go true the files if i can point any useful post i would merge them to here.
I will accept all the regrets but again i did everything in my capacity to keep this community alive.
Ones again if Robert feel the desire to help he can contact me
I want to thanks everyone concerning about the board who from day one assist me; pufito and his brother, Ger and all the local tech boys.
Is really not my intension to point the problem to no one specially not the site author.
