Since I am not able to access and administrate my forum (my computer is on IP V6) on PHP 7.4; since the mod ip V6 is not installable on 2.0.17 and since you consider it is not critical (I do); what do you suggest ?
Migrate to phpbb ? wait for SMF 2.1 official release which may come one day ?

Use a VPN. Opera has one built in, use it ;).

this is not a support thread....it is best to open your own thread....
that said smf 2.0.17 is not made to work fully with php7.4, lower your php to 7.3 or 7.2 (as some mods are not made to work with 7.3)
why is the mod not installable? Ask for support in the mods support page for further help installing it.
if you are using the httpbl mod, you will need to switch you computers ipv by disabling ipv6, log into your forum, turn off httpbl then switch your computers ipv6 back on....I recently ran into this problem as well, but I still use ipv6 without issues (other than the httpbl mod blocked me out)
while yes you could switch to 2.1x, remember that it is still in rc and not a stable release so there may/will be bugs and it will need to be updated frequently.
any other issues PLEASE START YOUR OWN THREAED thank you.

Thank you for using SMF!

Umm ... I already indicated it wasn't a support topic. Providing support in spite of the rule on these not being support topics encourages people to ask support questions anyway. :-\

I was typing when you posted and oddly it didn't warn me about a new post before posting
