Board technical update

Post by DG » Tue Mar 01, 2016 6:11 pm

This message board is migrating from a datacentre in the USA to one in London over the next few days. Hopefully the move will be seamless and there will be no disruption, but if it goes offline for a while in the next 48 hours or so, this will be the reason.

Well, they broke it for a while, but it should be fixed again now. Apologies for the outage.

So far so good :D

Just in case you're not aware, the forums were happily announcing the local SQL username on the error page during the downtime which is not exactly ideal from a security viewpoint.

I don't believe that was the actual password, it was just an indication that a password was being used. But always better to be safe so good to hear that they've been changed :) .

That's correct. The 'YES' just meant it was password protected. :-)
