Solved Maintance mode + upgrade of forum software

Post by Slayer00 on November 17th 2010, 6:12 pm

EDIT: "solved", deleted the forum and moving to my own webspace, I was hoping I could lock the forum and maybe use it later but.. Oh well.

Why does the maintance mode only last for one day?
I'm wanting to lock my forum.

Also how can I upgrade my forum from phpBB2 to phpBB3?
When I have upgraded into phpBB3 can I use the built-in backup tool to download the database data so I can move the forum elsewhere?

Its a default Forumotion made.
You just need to go to Display // Theme Version and click Phpbb3

You will lose your theme layout and stuff that you have so its best if you make a back up on your computer by copying all the images. You won't be able to get a back up from Forumotion to your computer or elsewhere because no one has rights to the database as Forumotion owns it.
