Server malfunction last night
« on: February 24, 2017, 10:41:23 AM »
Last evening, a server disruption had shoot down the websites of  WebsitesBaker.
Since the error was quite expensive to repair, the server was completely re-installed with the latest software overnight.

Currently, the forum, the Wiki and also Redmine are back in normal operation.
The rest of the pages are upgraded to the latest version of WebsiteBaker  WB-2.10.0. They will be online again in the course of the day.

Sorry for the inconvenience,
Manuela

The good news:

our servers are back online again!
I used the opportunity to update the software to the latest versions.
From now on all of our websites running the brand new 'WB-2.10.0' in a  'PHP-7.1.2' + 'mySQL-5.7.17' Linux environment.
Since I have deliberately set up the server with very strong restrictions, I would like to ask you all to report any irregularities. This is the only way to detect hidden errors.
The forum runs a patched version 'SMF-2.0.13' now, so it also works under PHP-7.1without problems.
