Accepting that the admins are probably tearing their hair out even more than the rest of us (and I've little left to tear out....), does anyone with expertise in this sort of thing have any idea why this is happening?

I'm just guessing, but wonder if the huge recent influx from the B Globe article has caused a tilt on this new version???

Thank goodness it isn't only me having trouble getting access in here. I was beginning to think I was doing something wrong. Whew! Now, for this problem to get resolved soon....I hope!

I'm pleasantly surprised to be reading this thread (or any, really); the "database error" page prevented me from reading any posts at all on my other attempts this evening. However, I'm now seeing a big blank space at the bottom left of the index page where it used to show which members were logged in. I don't mind the absence of the information, but I am wondering if this is true for everyone or a more localized issue.

[I also have the big blank space at the bottom of the page. In addition, cannot get to the new message shown in "my messenger". Access denied! You don't have permission... apparently now one can be logged in as far as part of the system is concerned, but not for all of it. I'm clearly challenged at this as well since for my first post I have edited Ada's instead of replying to it. LLB]

Thanks LLB, it is nice to know it is not just me.

And thanks to the Mods and Admins for whatever you did to make it possible to read threads again.

I can't access my own posts or topics - even though I've signed out and signed back in - and can't access "new content" either :headsmack:!

At least I could look at other topics and forums (is that the right word?) :thumbup: I'm just going to have to go and write another snail............ :bunny01:

What in blue blazes?! :blink:

I'm glad the site is finally back up somewhat, but there are a few things missing namely access to my profile and my private messages!!!

Any update is greatly appreciated.

This whole thing is a disaster how could IPB release something so dodgy?!

Same thing has happened to me.............can't access my profile or my messages. It also seems to be
running a bit slower.................

Can we get a communique' on the status of what's happened,what's fixed and when we'll be able to
get to our profile and messages?

BTW,a hearty thanks to the Admins and Mods for their perseverance!:clap1:

Interesting that these are unavailable now. Earlier when I could not read any of the forums I could still send/receive PMs.

Also, when I click on the icon to take me to unread posts it goes back to post #1.

Sorry folks, we have indeed been having some serious back-end problems. But we're on the mend. It will be a bit while longer before everything is back. Please hang on... sorry for the inconvenience!

What ever you are doing is beginning to work. I assume that turning 'Search' off is part of the recovery process...

Thanking you all for your (I assume frantic) efforts.

Not to cause a panic, but we have been short staffed on the technical side and... well, some things have gone awry as a byproduct of the software upgrade. It is incurring more manual maintenance than previously required. We probably would have stayed on version 2.x if it hadn't been for the vendor discontinuing support for that version--we were forced to upgrade.

Fortunately we have one "on call when available" resource who stepped in (in the middle of his night time too) and helped get FPN off of its knees. If it hadn't been for him, the website could have been inoperable for a lot longer.

Anyway, we'll have a more formal status message about the forum posted soon. Again, sorry for the disappointments. It's been a long day and night back stage at FPN...
