Great Job........ we are very lucky.

Great job getting it up and running again!


You did an awesome job getting the forum back online!  I know was an awful lot of work. And I want you to know how much it is appreciated.  :)

Ah, that sounds terrible :(. Not to mention buying a new server out of nowhere probably wasn't fun either...

Glad to see that SimpleMachines is back online :).

I actually already had another server that was intended to be an additional cluster node.

now the task to test the server that failed to figure out if anything is damaged or just a full crash + corruption ;)

but i must admit. i literally "freaked" when that messed up code stuff came up on the index...


so is this a bug for 2.0 beta  >:(

ok trying to  make myself laugh...  had a bad day.

great job getting back.  I was told my server shares a place in one of our racks in Atlanta, hope my machine didn't get wet.  ;) Your Guns N Roses Forum


Thank you for your hard work on getting the server back up. :) I think I nearly crapped my pants when I saw the "Yay it works!" message - thought for sure things had been hacked and ran like an idiot to my forum to make backups, haha. :P (Never know!)

In any case, I hope things will get back to normal soon. Thanks!

Good job getting it back you deserve a drink ;)


good to see smf back on track :)

but many of images for preview of the themes r missing :(
using smf 1.14 + tiny portal 0..9.8


I can't seem to be able to download language packs for 1.1.4. the download page for them issues warnings that might indicate the files don't exist.

Could someone maybe confirm this?

We are aware there is a problem with downloading many mods and themes. It is something we are working on. Please do not PM mod authors yet.

Some All of my themes are not downloadable. You said you are working on this. Do I have to reupload all the files by myself?


Thanks to all involved in bringing us back online :)

Great job guys!

Just one thing: going into Theme stats gives:
QuoteWarning: require_once(/home/simple/public_html/custom/themes/Sources/Shared/Stats.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/simple/public_html/custom/themes/index.php on line 164

Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required '/home/simple/public_html/custom/themes/Sources/Shared/Stats.php' (include_path='.:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/simple/public_html/custom/themes/index.php on line 164


Cannot access any attachments or mods - I get either 404 or blank page


We've lost a lot of attachments and we're not sure whether we're able to restore them at the moment, we're looking into it.
