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 if you have never heard of it before), the site you all know better as
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!
Greets, Jeroen Baten
LibrePlan global project leader.
