We would like to inform you that migration of accounts from old server 94.76.219.227 to new replacement VPS server 158.255.46.97 is completed.
As a result of persistent issues with our (ageing 8 year setup - along with my other sites) our previous VPS server has been completely discontinued.

For anyone struggling to pull up forums still; please clear your cache and try unplugging your modem for 60 seconds.

If you still continue to ping 94.76.219.227 as opposed to our new setup IP starting 158.x please send me a PM.

In relation to performance, the new spec seems pretty rapid from our side. Any feedback/bugs please report here...

Granted.

It's perfect timing really though I can't take credit for forward planning; the old setup was no longer fit for purpose.

If people could be kind enough to let me know if any individuals they talk too off-site can't get on. DNS looks good now, but you never know.

Today we identified issues relating to PHP 7.3 which was preventing certain site functionality such as PM's, Emails, New Registrations & Nofitications.

We have rolled back to version 7.2 and this has now resolved issues stated above.

Update; https://www.thefootballforum.net/casino-betting-tips/

We've signed a deal with a professional football content writer whom is providing us with 4x 750+ word articles weekly based on football & sports betting.

Should anyone else be interested in contributing, feel free to drop me a PM.

We have upgraded to the latest version of Xenforo today- some styling issues and errors may persist for a time.

If you find any functionality broken please help by stating these issues here.

not a bug or issue as such - but we can't see how many posts someone has made or more importantly which team they support under their avatar anymore?

Agree r.e. seeing who people support.

I've got no idea who people are on about in the rumour threads unless they're a poster who've been around for years.

I'll look to get this restored as a priority. Fair point regarding people discussing their teams.

TB, why is it that I'm only able to access the forum through a vpn? It was fine before the latest upgrade.

Same thing's happening to my good mate B2TF ( :bdick: ) apparently.

Cheers.

It's a figment of your imagination, Vanni, there's nothing going on, there's no issues, stop inventing them, you're just after a bit of attention..........................I said, via Australia, again.......... :wave:

Sorry bud, currently away on hols.

I'd advise you clear cache and/or try a different browser.

If that fails, PM me your IP address and I will ensure it's not been flagged by the server.

I wouldn't ban or discourage you guys, you know I love ya really. <3
