Planned downtime
« on: September 27, 2018, 09:21:56 am »
Hey guys!

Our last step for improving stability of the SFML website + connected services is — like explained a couple of weeks ago — moving to a new server. This will happen today and shortly.

During that time, the website and forums will not be available. We can't say exactly how long it'll take, but everything should be operational again in a couple of hours max.

See you on the other side! ;-)

We are back. Artifacts and some redirects aren't working at the moment, but the majority of the site is.

Forum should be fully working again. We had to update SMF for compatibility with PHP 7 (mysqli in favor of mysql) and patch a mod to make everything work again. Please tell us if you encounter problems.

And as a note of warning: If you ever intend to start a forum, do not use SMF.

There are still some issues with avatars and attachments which we'll look into shortly.

Edit: found the setting, avatars and attachments should work fine again.
