IMPORTANT NOTICE

A new version of SMF (v2.0.14) will be implemented on DD-Forum in about 6 hours.
This will be a BIG change in all the background software.
This provides compatibility with PHP 7 on the DD server (currently limited to PHP 5.6, which is no longer supported by PHP staff apart from security updates).
To ensure this goes smoothly, it would be a good idea if no one was actively posting at the time.

Procedure:
1.  Take full backup of DD server via CPanel
2.  Install SMF-2.0.14
3.  Test basic Forum functionality
4.  Update PHP-5.6 to PHP-7 via CPanel
5.  Test basic Forum functionality
6.  Take full backup of DD server via CPanel
7.  Have another beer

The only change users should see is "SMF 2.0.14" at the very bottom of each Forum page.
That's the theory anyway.
Please report any disfunctionality in Cyber Security > Reporting website errors and questions thread.
Thank you.

At what time would you estimate it is safe to post up to the Forum to check functionality?  In Eastern Standard Time is probably the best.

7.  Update Cyber Security > Strictly DD Updates Log with a message saying the Update happened OK.
8.  Have another beer.

After that.
I estimate 1 hour for the whole thing.
Meanwhile its OK to read but not post.

10-4.

I won't post up after about 5 hours from now, then not again until you give the A-OK in a post.

Following the update of SMF to 2.0.14 and PHP to 7.0,
I'm getting the blog front page http://doomsteaddiner.net/blog as a blank page,
although http://sun4living.com was coming up OK.

WP is supposed to run with either PHP version, but obviously isn't.

Reverted to PHP 5.6 and /blog loads OK.

Updated DD-WP plugins:
CleanTalk 5.65
RSS Icon widget 5.0
NinjaForms 3.1.1
Amr shortcode 3.4

and tried DD-WP on PHP 7.0 again (maybe an old plugin was stopping it?) but no luck.
Reverted to PHP 5.6, and I have left it like that for now.
Very odd.

I'm assuming it's OK to post again then.

Thanks for the effort and for keeping everything working after the attempt to upgrade to php 7.

Do you have a next step in mind to figure out what the incompatibility is between the Blog and php 7?

MAJOR FORUM CRISIS!
« Reply #14 on: May 16, 2017, 06:25:25 AM »
Knarf emailed me that he could not login to the forum.  So I logged out to check his login info.  Did not work.  Then *I* tried to log myself back in and could not do it either!

DO NOT LOG YOURSELF OUT OF THE DINER FORUM UNTIL THIS IS FIXED!!!!!

I tried first to get back in using one of my other computers with the login info stored.  No luck.  To get myself logged back in, I had to do a PASSWORD RESET, several times.  You have to look for how to do this, go to the login page and you will find a link.

Major calamity here today.
