I'm predominantly a Windows Server guy too. Very versed in full blown SQL, and have old Red Hat Certification (very rusty though) happy to help if needed.

Has helped me numerous times and i spend far too much time on it! Was looking forward to starting a thread

I can help out if needs be Simon. I wouldn't want to let this forum die as it's one of the few forums that has survived the mass Facebook group apocalypse. I work daily with php/mysql/javascript/css etc. But aside from the conversion / move process to a new host, you won't need those skills often.

It would be a real blow if the forum had to shut down. I was lucky enough to find my Teg from this forum and the info/knowledge sharing of the members are fantastic. I am more of a watcher but enjoy following updates from fellow Teg owners. It has become a way of life!

I really hope a resolution is found soon .... Vive La forum !

Is the current owner happy enough to hand over the domain name and a copy of the site/db? To be honest the domain name isn't that big of a deal to us "users" but might be for the trader's.
Certainly don't want this place to go missing. I bet Honda would be happy mind :)

Im certain the forum wont close, as we have the motivation and support to keep it here and we will do everything to keep it running.

He is keeping the domain, but we are hoping he is still happy to point at the forum which i dont see will be an issue for him.

I see this not as a problem but as an opportunity :)

This place isn't going anywhere, We won't let it :)... there's too much here for it all to just disappear.

If it did, what the hell would i do all day?!?! - I'd actually have to start conversing with the Mrs...

Woah things can't get any worse please, threats of the forum closing down, possibility of having to talk to the wife now, I can't cope with this, please make it go away. Next it will be talk of selling the Teg and buying a Renault :)

Not alone having to talk to the missus, but what about all the hrs I spend on here during the day when I am supposed to be doing "Work". If this site goes (which hopefully it wont) I will have to find some other way to spend my time while I pretend to be working.
I did a degree in IT so according to my education I am officially a computer scientist so should be able to help here, however the ink on the paper of my degree knows more about IT than I do at this stage, so i am not sure i would be any help to be honest.

Like many on here I feel I`m part of the DC5 family.It would be like losing an arm or a leg if this place were to shut down.It`s one of the best forums out there.... I`ve had loads of help and advice from here and tons of laughs too.Unfortunately,serving fish and chips is probably not a requirement to keep the forum open but I can turn a computer on or off if thats a help!! Cheers,David :xvtec: [-o<

On OR off not on AND off? Seems I'm one step above you on the computer literacy contest then as I can do both lol. But if it's more than to play solitaire I'm out

Really hoping the forum doesn't get closed down. I'm so grateful for the help I've had off many a member. I may not be able to offer much myself but there are some very knowledgeable people on here and some decent folk too. Fingers crossed for you Simon you get it sorted!

I can see you currently use a shared host, I can provide the same using my own personal hosting but it's only basic.

Happy to lend a hand, PM the details.
It's running on VPS...

Keeping up to the latest IPB version could be a pain sometimes depending on the backward compatibility (skins, add-on etc). IPB will take care of the upgrade if hosting on their but it would cost fortune. Not sure how the sharing hosting works now, I usually login via ssh to backup the files and data.

Good to know, Andre. I've been assisting Si with what needs to be sorted and something I was unaware of was the licence type for IPB. I don't suppose you have server CPU/Mem/Disk usage stats that you could provide Si with?

Cheers
