  1. Probably best explaining of the new situation and everything what happened before and after decision of phpBB team come from opinion of one of the oldest and probably best php coders which mods official are never verified from phpBB team - Ptirhiik (creator of category hierarchy and their integrating into phpBB): From http://www.phpbbhacks.com/forums/phpbb-2-s...09-vt72608.html With main point: who will trust the phpBB team in the future, knowing they announce they will keep security fixes even on old previous version (that is what they have claimed since the release of phpBB 3, and before), and finally drop it in such a short time line ? I won't for sure.
  2. I think that they need to think more about their customers and give ability to take over current mods or to give you option to manually update it. Just start to think what will happen if B.Gates decide to make completely new system over 3-4 years where programers of software, drivers etc.. need to write everything from scratch of make big modification to their product. With explanation that it evolves!? I think that it should be end of MIcrosoft. I will stick with old version so far as it is possible and chose my next board wisely to prevent same thing happen again.
  3. I like your irony The problem is with incompatibility where we can not integrate mods from phpBB2.x. And it have nothing to do with progress. Imagine that with every new version of Operational system all computer programers must rewrite their program to be compatible with new version? I'm not sure of my point was clear to you but if with every major upgrade you can import only stuff from MySql then it is still thumb down
  4. That;s big problem of phpBB3.x. Because phpBB3.x has been coded differently all old mods will be lose including style of board. I maintain also 2-3 boards and there are some mod that are really vital for board (like group mods paypal). It is not problem that there is new board and that support for old stop it but it is problem that because of different coding not any old mod is valid on new board and it is big min. for phpBB team. I'm afraid that over 4-5 years when new phpBB4.x come out same thing will happen with phpBB3.x
  5. I would like to say that i was pessimist regarding this upgrade but without reason. Server 103 has been updated this morning and there was only one glitch with including. Tech. support solved problem and now everything works fine. Nice
  6. The people on other forum say that php4 code is mostly compatible with php5 and rarely errors can occur but i'm pessimist and i expect a lot problems for TC clients and a lot problems for TC too. Simple because of decision to not run both version on same server for a little bit longer.
  7. Developing of program has been discontinued and i could not find any working version of program. Do you have maybe link to working program or do you have maybe any shareware program that can help you with converting to PHP5. I tried to search but could not find any.
  8. Agree. But php official website say that they will continue to make critical security fixes until 2008-08-08. So please give us more time running both version of php at least a couple more months. Many of us do not have server running PHP5 where they can test all php script and at the moment that PHP5 version will be installed on all servers totalchoice can expect a lot angry emails for non-working web site. It is better to run both version and give us time for test old php script and enough time for possible rewriting of scripts.
  9. Having both version on same server is easy task: How to Configure Apache to work with PHP4 and PHP5 Save yourself from trouble by saving your client from trouble.
  10. I think that it will cost me at least $100-$200 to let some php coder to verify and eventually rewrite some php script because many of them that i used right now are written for PHP4 and i can be lucky if half of them works for PHP5!? So my appeal is again to leave PHP4 along with PHP5 on all servers. Save yourself from unnecessary trouble by saving your client from trouble. Thanks
  11. Thanks for let us know about news but i'm still wonder why not leave PHP4 on server along with PHP5!? So far i know it is possible and it will save a lot people of trouble to rewriting code from PHP4 to PHP5 and because PHP6 come very soon then again rewriting to PHP6. Many hosting company already run both version to save their client unnecessary trouble. If there is not PHP4 along with PHP i guess that you will see december as busiest month every in history of company because of massive tickets that will come in about broken and non working sites.
  12. I hope that someone knows answer from tch staff and can reply here. Thanks
  13. I have 2 website hosted by totalchoice. One on the server 72.18.159.x and other one on server 204.11.52.x I would like that script from hosting 204.11.52.x instead of connecting to localhost that go to MySql database and then perform same things. I know that there is option for MySql remotely where i should add for example connecting from ip 204.11.52.x but is possible to let script from one hosting simple connect to other one and perform? Work that only with specific software or you can use also scripts and let them connect. Thanks
  14. I would like to add F-secure AV.It s probably one of the best AV.F-secure use already 3 engines for scanning (including kaspersky engine and signature files) and F-secure online scanner is worth to try http://support.f-secure.com/enu/home/ols.shtml
  15. danzfamily is cool looking site in my opinion with clean, simple and nice design. Good job.
