    I have also upgraded it to the final version of the software (vBulletin) available at version 4 (4.2.5) - there are no future versions, patches, or security updates - vBulletin 4 is end-of-life. This upgrade allows us to run PHP 7.2, which is fairly new, and still supported, and still receiving security updates.

    I am planning to move off vBulletin and on to Xenforo, as a managed service. This will put all the management of the OS, PHP, Software, and Database under control of the hosting company so I don't have to

    (DNS) Changes will take a little while to propagate around the internet, but if you are reading this, then you are seeing the new site!

    I will make sure email / notifications are working shortly.

    Tim
    Pretty much didn't understand a thing you said.

    BUT, thank you for the work you put in to keep the site running smoothly. (That much I do understand.)

    Best part of an upgrade is when nobody knows it happened. Well done Tim.
