    We're packing up shop here folks.....

    ....and moving!

    Many many moons ago, I attempted to move BBO to vbulletin 5. Well, at that time, it was newly released, but for our purposes here it crashed and burned. They are putting vbulletin 4 out to pasture, and because of that, vb4 wont run on newer tech like PHP7. So, we're upgrading the software, and moving hosts. Still within AWS as we have been, but a newer plesk based server which I'm finding I love. Anyhow, there's not enough traffic here to really plan for it, but I'm doing a lot of testing now for here and motocampers and when I close up the forums for a couple of days, you'll know we're moving.

    The move to PHP7 as a programmer can be a rather painful one, from what I hear. The PHP people went out of their way to break a lot of old code, sometimes for questionable reasons. It's no wonder the VB people don't want to try supporting both, and, if you don't control your host, you're GOING to get moved to PHP7.

    Yeah, thankfully I control the environment here 100% but it was just the next evolution.

    Looks good!
    In the end, regrets rarely come from things done, but from things not even tried.

    Whew! I thought BBO was being shut down. Wish Facebook didn't poach so many members... New site looks promising - Thanks Derick!
