Upgraded Rad Community Forums to YaBB 2.2.3


Upgraded the Rad Community forums to YaBB 2.2.3, which was released a few days ago.

I'm getting good at working our new VPS from the Linux command line, which makes this type of upgrade much easier.

[I use PuTTY launched from WinSCP, which passes login info. These commands are long as your arm, involving files six or seven directories deep. One type-o and it won't work.]

This was the first time I didn't have to ask the techs at WiredTree (our web hosting provider) any questions. Did it all by myself.

Last night, right after I place the forum in maintenance mode (in preparation to convert over to using Y223) I lost internet connectivity with the site.

I waited until I finally fell asleep. So the forums were in maint mode all night. Sorry. (Seems I was in maint mode, too.)

The forums contain ~35,000 posts, with members from all over the planet. (Guys way-smarter than me.) We specialize in backing up your hard drive with a cloning program such as Norton Ghost.
