Hi!

 

I just wanted to let everyone know that there's another update for the forum software coming up. Not long ago, Invision released version 4.3 of the forum software, which brings a couple of changes. While this isn't a major update, it's definitely not a small one either. I'm still researching if the update can be done fairly easily, and so far it looks like it'll be a fairly straightforward update.

 

That said, I still want to run a backup of both the web server and the database before going ahead with the update, so I'm expecting to do it something in this upcoming weekend. The forum will be down for a little while, but it shouldn't be much more than maybe an hour at most.

 

Of most interest to this forum is probably the updated gallery as well as the general performance improvements. If you want to read up on the update, there's more info here: https://invisioncommunity.com/news/product-updates/

The forum software has been updated to the latest version, so it should again be possible for people to register 😉

 

There's also a renewed gallery, more emoticons, some additional performance enhancements, and various other things you probably won't ever notice.

Btw, I'm also still looking into the whole SSL certificate, so that we can host the forum on https rather than just http. With our current Linux version on the server, it's a bit difficult to get it to work with automatic updates, however, Amazon has a release candidate for a new version of Linux which will make this a lot easier. I'm not sure when they'll do a final release, but once they do I'll start work on migrating to the new version of Amazon Linux.

 

 

Disclaimer: I'm aware that there are many Linux distros which make this easy, and Amazon doesn't force the use of Amazon Linux, however, Amazon Linux does offer a few niceties when you're running on Amazon's servers, which is really why we're running on Amazon Linux.
