Solved Moving forum off forumotion and backup of forum

Post by koimaster on September 16th 2010, 7:52 pm

After reviewing a complaint made against my forum by a member of watchgeeks.net and the attempts by him to manipulate the complaint process I am considering moving the forum off of forumotion to protect it.

My question is two fold.

1.Is it possible to move the entire forum onto a hosted server whish is not part of forumotion?

2. are there backups of the forum availble so that data to be moved wil not be lost and if so what is the cost to purchase it.

If you're wanting your forumotion site data, to use in another site hosted by someone other than forumotion, I'm afraid that isn't an option . Forumotion holds the rights to that data and to the best of my knowledge they won't honor your request.
since you're willing to part with some hard earned U.S.currency, you never know,they just might;but i wouldn't count on it .

Well my concern is if one day the powers that be decide to wipeout the forum and all of that data is lost forever. If forumotion had paid hosting I would go for that.

They have a back up system in place should something go terribly wrong. you won't be out much of anything. should forumotion as a whole go under, then there's reason to be concerned.
I would pay just for more access and control over the ACP and rights to my sites data.
when i first started out, i couldn't tell a signature from an avatar.
Now having 1000's of hours invested in my site, and better knowledge of policies and what we can/cannot do , i too "in part" share in your concerns . It's the risk we take with free and we agreed to the terms.
Since obtaining my site, i have seen additions in the 30's , most being very beneficial. I believe staff is working hard to meet the needs and demands within reason and for that i am grateful and content. Who knows ? maybe someday they'll make it possible to retrieve our sites data.? high hopes or am i just delusional.

Very Happy

I agree with your about paying for more control and data access. It could be done and forumotion could still keep a copy of the data for themselves.

I would guess several of us would be willing to do something like that.

Well Forumotion holding back data has been in place from the beginning. Im guessing they dont want everyone taking their sites off-site.

I would certainly prefer to stay here, my members love the place but the risk of some head case making false complaints and then having a forum and all of the work involved going POOF! is my concern.
