I need somebody to port over the board's database file so I can run the latest phpBB software.

The hosting service I use will not allow me to convert on their server.
So I need somebody who is running a server to install the latest phpBB, convert my supplied older db file, and then send me or upload the converted file.

This will allow us have people register, and other stuff that might be good for the site.

Thanks

I mean, I could try, but it's not really what I do. It would be like hiring a landscaper to do your plumbing.

I could hover in the background and make idiotic suggestions if you think it would help...

Thanks, Dodger. It's just frustrating doing all this stuff solo. I was hoping for a younger whizkid to overhaul this beast.

I'd also be happy to help if I could, but I don't have a server or any idea how to do those things. Sorry. I am, however, going to have to agree with the sentiments about the "kids" today.

And no his name ain't Jesus (its pronounced Hay-zeus). Just kidding. His name is Toby and he claims he can write code like that Zuckerberg dude from Facebook, he works cheap, and if he can't fix the problem, he knows other geeks that can. I explained the financial difficulties. He would be willing to work if he is promised he'll get paid. I propose that everyone who gives a shit about this board (I certainly do) ponies up $10 bucks and new members pay $20 to join. That will give us some liquidity to fix what needs fixing, allow new members to join and rescue this comotose patient from a slow painful boring lingering death.

Totally appreciate the help, Vishnu.

It really isn't that tough or worth paying somebody more than $100 to convert 1 db file. I just don't have the time to stop and deal with it. My skills aren't up to snuff with somebody who does this sort of thing all day long.

The right person could knock it out in a couple hours, it would take me a few days.

Thanks again.

My Android G1 won't let me upload any images on this site. That's why I don't have an Avatar. Help anyone?
