We were able to convert all the forum to SMF version 1.1.14!
All the attachments seem to be there as well as members, topics, messages, boards, categories....
I think we only loose personal attachment and some users avatars. We should be able to live with it and fix avatars later.


OK, I did it with a backup dated from the beginning of May.
So I will redo all the conversion again but with a latest backup that I should do during the weekend.

The next step will be to upgrade the SMF to their latest version which is 2.0.15 and then put our new forum online!

And....Let welcome all new 3B and DJ members into our forum.

The overall job will not be done yet as we will have to modify our categories and boards as we discuss to accomodate everyone. We will need to change the forum name and logo. But all those changes can be done with help from our admin John, Tim and new other one like Derek.

It was the most painful upgrade that I did for this website.

Thank everyone for your patience.
