Full Version: Switching from OSQA to MyBB

Hello everybody,

The last 2 month I have been trying very hard to upgrade several components of the LibrePlan infrastructure.
One of these components was OSQA (see http://www.osqa.net if you have never heard of it before), the site you all know better as ask.libreplan.org.
This turned out to be a real big challenge.
I tried to upgrade and failed, downgrade and failed, switching databases and failed.
Whatever I did, it failed. With over 20 years in Linux experience I started to blame the software :-).
Sure, I could run a recent version of the OSQA software but the spam postings where too much to keep up with.

So, in the end I gave up and decided to switch to MyBB.

Maybe, if I find more time (which I doubt) I will migrate old OSQA questions and answers to the new forum.
But I would not hold my breath until then  Wink

If there are regular users who had gained merrits/reputation over the years just email me and I will look it up in the old database and reestablish there ranks.

In the mean time: have fun!
