Problems with the old Amkon Vbulletin database
« on: February 28, 2017, 03:58:19 AM »
Basically a heap of tables are fucked (corrupted or hacked) and its going to take some time and some work to fix so temporarily this is now home.

Good news is I can convert nearly everything over from our vbulletin database to this SMF forum so probably wont lose any threads or posts up to until about 3 or 4 weeks ago.

Sorry its taken so long to sort out but Godaddy tech support are next to useless and tbh im as busy as fuck as well.

think I have it sussed, just need to create a new database for both software versions tables to live in and I should be able to convert old posts and threads, testing it now but its a massive database so could take a fair while (48hrs min)

thought I had it sussed and had converted about 500000 posts over but it broke after a few hours, don't know how or why, anyway i'll keep plugging away, meanwhile you have this sandpit to play in.

oh and hey GF and screammmm glad to see you guys are still kickin'. :)
