Default Re: Anyone want to take over the forum?

I'll have to figure out and install vBulletin, but I can spare a few hundred gig's to back this one up for reference, if we need it....right now I have 1.35TB I'm not using, and once I build my new server, that number will go way up.

Just need to know what versions of what software are on the server...let me see, vbulletin, php, mysql? I don't see anything too strange. It would all be on newer versions, though. Shouldn't bee too hard to adapt and import into new versions...of course, the URL would have to change.

It's been so long ago that I set this up in vBulletin that I don't remember how to do all that.

We did a little customizing on the look and feel and added a couple of mods like the "New Posts" menu item and "Donate". I think the "All Albums" was extra too.

Tom, the admin on ST-Riders.net, is going to look through our few "How to" articles to see if he can salvage some of that sort of thing. I'm going to encourage him to save some of our pics too. Some are quite old and date back to when the ST1300 first came out.

Go Hawks!

You should be able to find almost all of it through the admin panel. Somewhere there should also be a database back-end login, and how to connect, which will tell you what the back-end server (probably MySQL) is.

You should also be able to back everything up in the admin panel. You should be able to get the entire forum, to include posts, pictures, login's, everything. The login's are typically (but not always) encrypted, so they may not integrate into a new installation properly, but they can all be reset after an import is complete.

Honestly, my biggest concern is the articles. Lots of time and energy went into them, and I'd like to save them. If they can be ported over to ST-Riders, then I'm cool with it - I'd just hate to lose it all.

As an aside, I would make it a header site on my existing site, which I host here in the house. Consequently, the costs are minuscule (since I own the hardware, there's no hosting cost, and the URL locator has been mine for a long time, with that ongoing registration cost being about $50/year).

Yes . . . those articles would be a great loss .If their is a cost associated in keeping them I am sure donators can help there too.

Tanks , Joe , for all those Years of effort keeping alive . . . I wish I would have the knowledge and capability to take over .

Tom from ST-Riders is going to save the articles - those that he deems worthy.

I think you missed my point - there would be no cost for me to duplicate the entire forum on my servers - I run the servers anyway, and the storage space is available. I just need a backup of the database(s), and some time to install the software. I'm running other websites, and the URL is already owned by me.

Scott can do it, give the guy a chance to retain this site.
