Before the end of 2017 the board will be down for a brief period of time for an upgrade.
Past experience says less than 30 minutes but I can't predict the future.
Also, there is a high probability that the forum will move to a different host, but that will not happen in 2017.
Thanks,
Doug

Note to self...

Postby DougWilliams » Wed Nov 15, 2017 2:10 am

Note to self.. after testing a SQL Update for someone, be sure to restore your backed up database before doing an Auto-Organize on your images...

I was able to recover, not just from the backup but I had to link the old database (SQL Update tested) and the new database (Auto-Organized image) on the reference field and copied data from one database to the other.

I practice what I preach (backup, backup, backup) and I COULD have recovered from backups but there would have been some pains of other data reconstruction.

I think this is a wake up call for me to have a separate copy of the database JUST for testing the various things CAT users request. I usually just backup, test, restore but I forgot that last step...
