Phorum? Really?

This is the name of the software that the message board is run on:

It's open source and written in .PHP language. Requires little processing power and could run easily on an inexpensive cloud based virtual private server account from a provider like OVH for about $20 a month.
I actually got a similar message when I tried to send a PM to a forum member regarding a tax question.
I'm working on a fix to this problem, but it will require extended server down time. I'm going to have to schedule it.
Will we get enough warning to prepare for forum withdrawal? Or would that be phorum withdrawal?

Equal rights for others does not mean fewer rights for you. It's not pie.

Never try to teach a pig to sing. It's a waste of your time and it really annoys the pig.
One more thing, could you please give us a heads-up idea of the length of the "extended server down time", so we can plan our lives accordingly. smiling smiley


I intend to live forever. So far, so good.
May I suggest April 14-15 so I can finish up tax returns without distractions? LOL.

Time to build a bigger bridge.
Why is it, when I am dying to respond to a post, that I receive the "Phorum Database Error" message. Like now. Grrrrr.

There was something funky going on in the forum earlier. I copied and pasted and sent the error messages directly to Jacob. I kept getting different phorum messages.
I kept getting those, too and then they went away......probably because you reported them to Jacob.

Thank you!

Jacob- I'm getting that constantly when I try to post shops
