    I also had trouble getting in this afternoon. Edit; getting 502's right now on the controls, pro forum.


    Genuine question; how are you planning to deal with the end of life issue? Why not stick with the upgrade??

    https://forum.vbulletin.com/forum/vb...te-end-of-life
    vBulletin 4.2.5 is end of life December 2017 and will not be receiving any future development. Warning: vBulletin 4.2.5 is not compatible with PHP 7.2.0 or higher.

    https://www.php.net/supported-versions.php and https://www.php.net/eol.php
    PHP 7.1 went end of life about December 2019

    Seems to me it's just a matter of time before a decent CVE comes along and someone really wipes this site out. Or, you know, sits here and harvests user credentials, turns it into a ether miner or whatever.

    Today's downtime had nothing to do with software version. We continue to modify the software well beyond the support vBulletin provide. These 502 errors are somewhat mystifying, but we'll get to the bottom of it.

    I’m an IT idiot, but if your knowledge is above those who continue to make this forum work on a daily basis, please reach out to them and offer your assistance.

    Questioning those who continue to support this forum (probably on their own time with no pay) makes no sense. Unless you have solutions to make it work better, you might want to reevaluate your comments.

    Note:
    I know you said this was a “Geniune” question, but these guys who have been working behind the scene to bring this forum back to its original state, are probable exhausted, and deserve our support - my 2 cents.

    Thanks for your understanding.

    It has been that way since the trouble began.

    The mobile version works too, but not the desktop version for getting into the PRO- Residential forum.
