ok. i had another major downtime. the forum had been running on a dedicated server with 50 or so other sites since the last couple of months. looks like it was not enough.i have now moved it to a new dedicated with just one other site running on it. took a while coz i had to changeover manually. directadmin > cpanel.now. i have tried to fix everything i could but i think some things would still be dead. if you guys face any problems just mention it here and i will if i could fix that for ya. also. do comment if you find the forum's performance better/worse than before.
