So.... we messed up
« on: March 02, 2019, 04:11:34 pm »
During some routine machine/server relocating we managed to forget that the EGC website was hosted on one of the machines we were moving. This resulted in the website/forums not being transferred to the new location. We did not notice that the website wasn't running until after all the remote backups had also been deleted.

Good news, we found a hard copy of the forums database on our home systems.
Bad news, this database backup is from 2015.

While we have the most important years of EGC (2012-2015) we do not have access to the the last four years. While it is sad that the records we had of the passed few years are now gone we are fortunate to have the the early, most important years.

We've taken measures to ensure that we store remote backups more regularly and are less prone to deletion should something similar occur.

The opportunity was taken to upgrade the SMF version to v2.0.15.

To clarify, only the forums were effected by this. The ECNR SA-MP server is still up & running with the latest database information.

We apologize for allowing this to happen and assure you we have taken measures to ensure it doesn't happen again.
