Taking the Board Down at Midnight Tonight
« on: March 20, 2021, 01:25:10 PM »
I've got everything ready to go. Did the upgrade in the sandbox and cleaned up all sources of error messages.

It will be down for about an hour

- Put in maintenance mode so no one can post.
- Make a copy of the database
- Put the upgrade files on the server
- Run the upgrade. This took about 30 minutes in the sandbox as there are database structure changes.
- Put the theme files that were causing errors but now fixed from the sandbox over to their corresponding locations here
- Do a few tests
- Bring the board back up

If things go wrong
- Copy this version's files back to the server
- Point the boards at the database copy I made before starting

By everyone. Its been great.
My only regrets are making fun of duckman's wifes' fake titties and being mean to Rickb for being an attention whore.
At least we will all know how woopussy ends.

Seriously, the board has thrown 4 million errors since Thursday morning.

Steve, if something should ever happen to my current dad can I call you my new dad?

That's embarrassing.  Looks like Josh Duggar when his parents asked him to babysit.

Are we under attack? Is this a prelude to a Hogville invasion of the nobs and simpletons?

I am not claiming I am right, I am saying I don't get it.

The only person on here I know I've met before is Rick, everyone else who knows...nobody wears fucking name tags and SS never shows her face so she could be standing next to me and I'd never know. If it ends, it's been real....and  :notexas:



Trust me, as you get to know me I just get weirder

I have met several on here and had beers with some. I am sure the ones I haven’t met would be good dudes if I ever did meet them. However, if this is the end, you can all go DIAF. I will go first.... ;D

The room looked like the site of some horrible zoological experiment involving whiskey and gorillas....

I think this is largely my fault.  I did a bunch of work to try to make the board useful on mobile browsers like 4 years ago, and the new PHP upgrade doesn't recognize any of it.  We'll get it fixed.

Is this like what happened back in the day, like 2007, when a bunch of people from Oinkx took it over and had Dirty Stanchez murdered?

I'm just a dark guy from a den of iniquity.

Don't go away mad.  Just go away.

I don't think I've ever had my body more vaselined up. 

Needless to say. I'm ready.

Let's do this.
