RLG data loss - new forum/community software?

Post by Hammer »

Last night/today the mysql database on the server had some issues. RLG has lost data, it seems everything after about April of 2020. Unfortunately this last 8 months or so has been pretty active for us and we have posted some good info, especially in the DCS forum.

Right now the database is still slow, I am working on that. Hopefully I can have this resolved soon.

As I stated before, I am not that happy with this forum software. I have two forums running this software and both are crawling. With the data loss it may be a good time to cut bait and move to something else. Thoughts and opinions welcome.

BTW, I found these potential alternatives so far (they allow import of at least users from phpBB3.2):

Discourse
bbPress

EDIT:
adding another alternatives as well:

MyBB: https://mybb.com/

Here is an example that Grifter found:

I have dropped this to a regular post since the topic seems to have died for now.
