Summary

After the recent move from duality.adamslair.net to www.duality2d.net in issue #700, the forum is the only place left on the old domain. Consider moving it to a duality2d.net subdomain as well.

Analysis

  • Since the forum was, for the most part, superseded by the chat in active usage, this issue is flagged nice2have for now.
  • Moving could be done with an "as-is" approach where the databases and files are copied over to the new space and adjusted internally to match the new domain.
  • It could also be done with an entirely new phpbb installation where the old content is imported. However, the forum has custom changes all over the place, so more time might be needed for this than with a move only approach.

Removed the Nice2Have label, as the current provider is planning to update the minimum PHP version from 5.6 to 7.0 on the server, which will break the current forum software. There is a rollback in place, which will stay active for the time being, but not indefinitely.

As similar issues could happen on the new provider as well, prefer going with a new installation with imported old content. Also consider using a more modern forum software instead of phpbb.
