Major site upgrade

Post #1

Post by otseng »

I'm looking into updating the server and I'm realizing this is going to be a major overhaul. The software on this site is really old (phpBB 2.0.x) and running on an old OS (CentOS 6). By upgrading to CentOS 8, it will make all existing code incompatible (PHP, phpBB). It looks like the only way to upgrade is to use phpBB 3.3. What that means is ALL customizations to the forum will be lost and it will go back to a stock forum. This will mean things like tokens, likes, MPG, etc will not be on the new forum.

You're right, table doesn't work.

I asked when the table bbcode would support 3.3 here.
After making some modifications to it, I got the table bbcode ext to work.
