GTAForums Downtime and Bugs (30th October 2005)

On 2005-10-17 the forums were taken offline due to a hard drive failing in the server. It was a really old drive which wasn’t really designed for server use, so a proper replacement had to be ordered. The database was backed up, the new drive was fitted and everything was back up and running on 2005-10-23. Well, nearly everything. Some of the forum sections would not work in some skins, so I told illspirit. He replaced the skin folder with a fresh upload and everything worked again.

I don’t know of anything else which got broken during the downtime.
