Hi all,

The forum was offline this morning due to a power outage at our facility. It has been fixed. This should be a rare situation.
I offered it before, but I will offer it again: if anyone (well, someone I know somewhat) wants a copy of the database of the forum for backup purposes, please let me know.

- Jacco.

I could back it up to my home server. I just am no linux user, not having a clue about it. So while I could back it up, I would have no clue at all on how to get it up and running again.. does phpBB run on IIS?

:)

Actually, thinking about it, I would have some crappy-i-hate-it-totally linux server somewhere around that i still have not canceled?? :) Too much different servers, yuk..

Nah, you don't need all that. phpBB can export a zip file with the database, which allows you *in theory* to rebuild the forum. You can then ignore the complexities until ompf2 actually vanishes.
