Why is the forum down? It’s down because I accidentally deleted the directory that the forum database was in… A forum database is where all the information for the forum is stored. Posts, settings, etc. What’s worse is that I didn’t have a backup of the database (because it was a SQLite database), and the forum was in-operable.
What I’m doing now is setting up the forum up again, but taking advantage of this time to use a MySQL database this time, which is more efficient. I am also taking the time to improve the forum and fine-tune some things.
